New Zealand Young Farmers (NZYF) has announced that My Vaccine Pass will be compulsory for all wishing to attend FMG Young Farmer of the Year events.

“Like most other businesses, organisations, and events, we have responded to the requirements set out by the Government,” says NZYF chief executive Lynda Coppersmith.

She says that implementing a vaccine pass requirement is ‘paramount’ for the safety of communities, staff, attendees and competitors, adding that is will ensure the contest season goes ahead.

“The last two contest seasons were disrupted by Covid-19, so we are all looking forward to a season with relatively minimal disruptions for contest season 54.”
