'If at first you don't succeed' his motto

Determined competitor Reuben Carter will again be Tasman's representative in the ANZ Young Farmer grand final.

The 30-year-old agronomist won the Tasman regional finals in Murchison on Saturday.

It was his seventh round of regional finals, and he was also the Tasman representative at the 2013 final in Auckland.

Mr Carter, from the Christchurch City club, is active in stock judging and was the winner of the 2012 NZ & Australasian Junior Meat & Wool Breeds sheep judging competition.

On Saturday he scored 216 points out of a possible 375, ahead of Andrew Wiffen, of the Renwick club, on 199, and Sarah O'Connell, of the Dunsandel club, was third with 188.
