Young Farmers Challenge

A team of four consisting of men and women aged between 18 – 35 take on 10 farm challenges in the hopes of winning $2000 prize!

In future years we are hoping the winning team will be able to participate interstate at the RAS state finals. But for now, Dowerin Field Days is offering $2000 in prize money to the winning team and a great opportunity for young people within the Agricultural industry and regional towns to network, unite and showcase what a day in the life on the land entails!
