Young Farmers

Competition Overview

A flurry of coloured shirts, moleskins and broad-brimmed hats will erupt on the Main Arena during Ekka.

The Young Farmers Challenge presented by Arrow Energy is an initiative developed by the RNA Future Directions Committee to encourage young farmers and urban dwellers of mixed sexes to participate in the Royal Queensland Show.

It is a relay-style event, comprised of eight-team challenges incorporating everyday farm life, from building portable cattle yards to carrying hay bales. The event has grown steadily since the first challenge was held in 2009 to now include a total of 40 competitors across 8 teams.

Watch as Queensland's finest farmers are pitted against their city counterparts - all aiming to secure the glittering title of Queensland's Champion Young Farmers.
