The Young Farmer of the Year 2016

The Kondinin Group and ABC Rural’s Australian Farmer of the Year Awards are back in 2016 in a new format designed to recognise outstanding agricultural achievement.

Farmers can nominate themselves or their colleagues for five awards in 2016.

The two flagship categories include:
The Australian Farmer of the Year
The Young Farmer of the Year

New categories have been introduced this year to recognise rural champions on and off the farm:
The Farming Legend of the Year – recognises farmers who have made a lifetime contribution to the industry, showing resilience, nous, knowledge and outstanding acumen.
Rural Community Leader of the Year – highlights unsung heroes who keep farming communities vibrant.
Rural Consultant of the Year – pays tribute to the hard-working consultants who help farmers achieve outstanding results.

Entries close 26 August.
