Event Details

A Waipukurau man who grew up in town has secured the final spot in the FMG Young Farmer of the Year Grand Final in Hawke’s Bay.

Joseph Watts, 28, won the fiercely-contested East Coast regional final in Dannevirke on Saturday.

“I’m pretty stoked, but I’m a bit nervous about the next couple of months. I don’t have long to prepare for the grand final in July,” he said.

Watts is a technical field representative with PGG Wrightson and was raised in Palmerston North.
