The Ulster Farmers’ Union, along with the sponsors of the UFU Cereals Competition, hosted their annual Awards Ceremony in the Rosspark Hotel, Kells this week which paid recognition to the first class growers here in Northern Ireland.
Winners of the Winter Wheat, Winter Barley, Spring Barley and Oats categories joined UFU Deputy President Ivor Ferguson and representatives from the competition sponsors BASF, Bayer CropScience, Clarendon Agri-care, Joseph Morton Ltd, Origin NI and Syngenta to celebrate the competition’s success.
“The UFU Cereals Competition has become a definite highlight in the annual agricultural calendar, giving us the perfect opportunity to recognise and celebrate the first class growers we have right here in Northern Ireland,” said UFU deputy president Ivor Ferguson. He added that the UFU are very proud to host these competitions for its members and would like to congratulate all the winners for their hard work and effort.
“We would also like to thank the competition sponsors BASF, Bayer CropScience, Clarendon Agri-care, Joseph Morton Ltd, Origin NI and Syngenta who not only supports and promotes the UFU’s cereals competition but also give up their time to travel around the Province to assist in the judging of the competition,” he said.
“The UFU would also like acknowledge the dedication and hard work that the UFU Seeds and Cereals committee put into organising the competition, and also thank the UFU Group Managers for their continued support in encouraging Union members to participate in the competitions,” he added.
