Do you have what it takes to be a journalist?

All you have to do is write a 300-word article accompanied by a suitable photograph of a farmer who uses one of the Muddy River brands on their farm. The competition is open to all ages.

We are looking for inspiring stories and photos that bring together your writing skills, and the way in which one or more of our branded products have changed the way the farmer and his operation succeed.

Competition closes March 29 5PM 2019. Winners will be selected by the panel of Muddy River Agricultural staff, based on the following criteria,

1. Engaging story and photograph
2. Ability to resonate with an agricultural reader
3. Quality of combining the benefits of the equipment with the farm results
4. Capturing the spirit of the Aussie farmer
