AFFCO Proud to be a Sponsor of the Ahuwhenua Trophy

The Ahuwhenua Trophy acknowledges and celebrates business excellence in Maori farming and AFFCO is a proud sponsor of these awards. The photo is of 2019 winners of the Sheep & Beef Competition Eugene and Pania King of Kiriroa Station. The awards were established in 1933, by Sir Apirana Ngata and the then Governer General Lord Bledisloe. They were established to encourage skill and proficiency in Maori farming. They continued through until 1990 and then relaunched in 2003, and from 2005 they have continued in the format of a dairy and sheep and beef competition in alternate years.
