TAS Country : September 16th 2010
18 Tasmanian Country Friday, September 17, 2010 Rural Youth Tasmanian Young Farmer of the Year Titles call for many talents THERE are many high- lights to being a Rural Youth member, Agfest, training subsidies, travel, and not to mention the lifelong friends you gain along the way. Last weekend another of the numerous benefits of being in Rural Youth was held, the Irrigation Tas- mania Young Farmer of the Year 2010 Competition. This competition isn't easily won by just anyone, the competitors go through run offs within their re- gions and from this the top 15 scoring entrants in the state are determined. These people are then offered the chance to com- pete in the state level of the competition on the day of the Young Farmer Dinner where the actual award is presented, only after each of the 15 competitors are put through their paces from 8:30am that morning --- partaking in many mod- ules during the day --- the top six scoring competitors then participate in a quiz and public speaking mod- ule that determines the winning line up. For 2010 James McShane of Oatlands was awarded Irrigation Tas- mania Young Farmer of the Year. James excelled in the following modules: ferti- liser quiz, finance, and animal nutrients. James was also the high- est scoring in the Southern Region Young Farmer Run Offs held in August 2010; this won him a $100 Al- lgoods Gift Voucher. James said he enjoyed the Agrisports section which included fencing, clothes folding, stacking hay bales and packing up an electric fence, however wasn't afraid to admit the equine module wasn't a strong point. The prize pool of win- ning first place of the Irri- gation Tasmania Young Farmer of the Year compe- tition was $4000 cash, a mountain bike and tool box (donated by Tasweld), two drums of Round Up (donated by Serve Ag) and a $400 Gift Voucher (from Allgoods). Runner up Martin McConnon, also of Oat- lands didn't go home empty handed, he was presented with $3000 cash, Cigweld Welder & Helmet (donated by Tasweld) and a $300 Gift Voucher (donated from Allgoods). Third place Allan Perry of Devonport was awarded $2000 cash, a Makita Grinder and Tool Bag (do- nated by Tasweld) and a $200 Gift Voucher (from Allgoods). Fourth Place winner Derek Hollander of Hobart was presented with $550 cash, a Line Seven Vest (donated from Tasweld) and a $100 Gift Voucher (from Allgoods). Fifth place winner Vic- toria Percival of Kettering was awarded $300 cash, Uvex Polarized Safety Glasses, and Tool Kit (do- nated by Tasweld) and a $50 Gift Voucher (donated from Allgoods). Finally sixth place went to Zac McCarthy of Stoodley who was award- ed $150 cash, a pair of Uvex Polarized Safety Glasses (donated by Tasweld) and a $50 Gift Voucher (do- nated from Allgoods). The top six scoring com- petitors of the state in order were: James McShane, Martin McCon- non, Allan Perry, Derek Hollander, Victoria Perci- val and Zac McCarthy. The top scoring partici- pants from each region each received a $100 Al- lgoods Gift Voucher were; Northern Region, Nerinda Lade; Southern Region, James McShane; and North West Region, Allan Perry. The remaining nine competitors that made it through to the State Level were each awarded a $50 Allgoods Gift Voucher; these people were; Keelan Dent, Derek Hollander, Zac McCarthy, Martin McConnon, Victoria Percival, Kyle Robinson, Owen Woolley, Grace Mitchelson, Vanessa Ac- heson, Andrew Buckby, Malcolm Campbell and Adam Chugg.
