Runner-up in the Tux Yarding Challenge
Waimata's Merv Utting and Fern came runner-up in the Tux Yarding Challenge held at Te Oranga Farm, in Dannevirke, over the weekend.
Their run was worth 93.5 points, and it automatically qualified them to compete in the New Zealand finals to be held in Taupo next January.
Rod Mead and Gum also competed in the final runoff but did not make the top five.
The ewe lambs were very consistent throughout the four days.
