Season 56 is looking a little different

This season, we’re trialling a new format in all seven regions to look at ways that we can still find New Zealand’s best Young Farmer, but in a way that is potentially more streamlined.

These will be two-day events, with day one resembling the traditional District Contest and day two aligning more closely with a Regional Final.


Day 1 (Friday)

Similar to the District Contests, up to 30 Contestants will complete 10-15 short modules. The top 8 Contestants will move to Day 2.

Day 2 (Saturday)

The top 8 contestants from Day 1 will complete two Head-to-Heads, and a Farmlet and will compete in the Buzzer Quiz at the evening show.

The winner will move to Grand Final.

FMG Junior/AgriKids

The FMG Junior and AgriKidsNZ competitions will still take place on the Saturday of the Regional Final.
