The highlight of Federated Farmers 2012 National Conference was the Vodafone Cream of the Crop Awards night which brought the past year's major agricultural award winners together.
The gala evening was hosted by Country99 TV's Mark Leishman.
The award for the Allflex/Federated Farmers Agribusiness Person went to Progressive Meats managing director, Craig Hickson, while Dr Doug Edmeades was named as the Ravensdown/Federated Farmers Agri Personality.
"We are pleased to have such high-calibre award winners," says Bruce Wills, Federated Farmers President.
"Preceding our awards was the Vodafone Cream of the Crop; the only occasion I believe where all of agriculture's major award winners assemble under the same roof. It is a privilege to have so many exceptional farmers in the same room."
