Its that time of year when agriculture says #thankaconsumer

Its that time of year when things can get a little stressful.  You have this great team of people around you.  You have sponsors that have faith in you and put their money down to say so. You have young people in the agriculture sector who give up so much of their time to go into schools and share their love of what they do and why they do it.

Wonderful students and teachers who have given 6 months of their lives into turning a large white piece of fibreglass into a masterpiece that celebrates our great Australian farmers. So many brave people who put their hand up to participate and support The Archibull Prize

Little people from little tiny schools in places most of us who have never heard of. Parents, grand parents, community members, politicians who host tea parties for the winners ( thanks Niall) they all give so much. Even celebrities visit the schools. For some people the program is even a lifeline

This time of year is stressful for everyone involved and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of all the farmers out there. They might not all say thank you but I can assure you they are all just as blown away by what you achieve as I am

The entries don’t close until tomorrow night but a few have come in early

They speak for themselves
