Young Farming Champions visit their Archibull Prize schools

The NSW Archibull Prize 2012 is coming to the pointy end of the competition with entries due in just under 3 weeks.

We have Young Farming Champions from QLD and NSW in full swing going into schools from Camden Vale to Nowra and out to Gunnedah (thanks to the generosity of Upper Namoi Cotton Growers Association)

Today Beef Young Farming Champion Bronwyn Roberts is heading from Emerald to  Berkeley Vale. Bron has just started up her Farmer Bron Facebook page to share with the community her farming journey. Check it out here
