One question was all that separated the winner and runner-up at the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Young Farmer regional final on Saturday.
Thirty-year-old agri-manager Tim van de Molen became the second man through to the ANZ Young Farmer grand final after beating Dwayne Cowin.
Mr van de Molen scraped ahead by only two points after a tight contest.
Josh Cozens and James Bryan placed third and fourth respectively.
Tim van de Molen says he felt comfortable competing having taken a year off last year, but found some of the more tech-savvy modules a little tricky.
"A lot of work had to be done for the fencing module, and the module with GPS and iPads was complicated, but after that, I really found my groove," he says.
The Young Farmer road show moves to Woodville this weekend, which will host the East Coast regional final.
