The winner did not necessarily make it. Every finalist has already made it. This is Johan van Huyssteen's message to the four finalists in Free State Agriculture’s (FSA) Young Farmer of the Year 2018 competition.
Van Huyssteen, 2017's winner, wishes the finalists, Hendrik Theron, Reece Dedwith, Wessel Hattingh and Nelius Ferreira, all the best and says they should enjoy every moment.
The winner of the competition, in collaboration with Standard Bank, will be announced at a gala evening on 12 April 2018 in Bloemfontein. The finalists were visited in February by FSA's judging panel, of which Prof Pieter Fourie of the Central University of Technology is the convener, on their farms.
