Royal Agricultural Society of WA announces a team to compete in the National Australian Young Farmers Challenge

October 21, 2021

The 2021 Australian Young Farmer Challenge is set to be delivered in a whole new virtual world on Thursday 21 October.

Once a year, the cream of the crop from each state comes together to battle it out for the title of Australian Young Farmer Challenge champions.

Normally the teams would come together at one of the Country’s Royal Shows to compete in a range of on-farm style challenges. However, due to COVID we have seen the competition innovate to an online event.

The Royal Agricultural Society of WA is pleased to announce that a Western Australian team comprising of our current 2021 RAS Rural Ambassador winner Kelly Gorter, Josh Antonio from Northam, Jacob Walmsley from Waroona and, Ashton Hagboom from Dowerin will be proudly representing team WA this afternoon at 5pm western time on the AYFC Facebook live stream.

This year’s event will consist of four trivia rounds. Each team has been able to select a speciality topic and will be sure to put the team’s agricultural and general knowledge to the test!

The event can be found on the Australian Young Farmer Facebook Page @AusYFC for the livestream and keep up to date with all AYFC information by following on Instagram @ausyoungfarmerchallenge and Twitter @AusYFC.
