There are many other brilliant young farmers, who are better producers than him, who have to take over the reins and help build the image of agriculture in South Africa. This is according to Nelius Ferreira, Free State Agriculture (FSA) Young Farmer of the Year for 2018.

The Bonsmara farmer from Harrismith says it is interaction with other young farmers such as his co-finalists of last year, Hendrik Theron, Reece Dedwith and Wessel Hattingh, that gives him hope for agriculture in South Africa.

FSA is looking for its 24th winner of the prestigious competition. It was held in 1996 for the first time. The organisation appeals to all young farmers, their friends and family to make sure the best candidates are finalists this year. Entries close on 31 January 2019.
