Skellerup Young Farmer of the Year 1981

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1981

Jon Neilson and Bob Parker host the 13th annual Young Farmer of the Year final, broadcast live from Trillos nightclub in Auckland in 1981. The show includes pre-recorded items showing the seven finalists on their farms, as well as competing in the "rural activities" part of the contest, which consists of such tests as hanging a gate, changing a tyre, and determining defects in sheep carcasses. The presentation of the "cloak of knowledge" to the winning farmer at the end of the night is delightfully cheesy.

This competition requires the mental dexterity of Mastermind coupled with the skills of a top class tradesman.
– Jon Neilson, host
