BGS Grassland Farmer of the Year Competition has a new Sponsor

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

BGS is pleased to announce that existing BGS corporate members Yara have become sponsors of the prestigious BGS Grassland Farmer of the Year Competition for the first time this year. They join existing sponsors DLF Trifolium who have been involved with the competition for over ten years. The fertiliser (Yara) and seed producer (DLF) combination serves the competition very well, with each bringing particular expertise and experience to the table.

As always the 2015 competition will encompass the length and breadth of the U.K. to find Grassland Farmers deserving of the top prize. Many local societies have already chosen their winners, which will go forward to the regional rounds. The lucky few will progress to the U.K. – wide and final rounds.

The 2015 winner will be announced in the autumn at an awards ceremony hosted by Bro Ddyfi Grassland Society as the local of last year’s winner Dafydd Jones.

Nigel Hester of Yara said ‘We are looking forward to contributing to this initiative which does so much to highlight best practice in grassland farming and raise the profile of hard working grassland producers'.
