Phil Denny, of Te Anau and Peter Lyder, of Tokonui, had the tough job of judging the hay entries in the Te Anau Lions Club's hay and baleage competition yesterday.

Competition spokesman Gary Kirkman said 45 large bales of hay and 75 of baleage were presented for judging in the semiannual event.

It was going to be quite difficult to pick a winner as all the entries were of such a high standard and stakes were high – a tonne of fertiliser for the hay section and 10 tonnes of lime for the baleage champion.

While farmers were a highly competitive lot, there were never "fisticuffs" between winners and losers, he said.

The competition was a great opportunity for the farming community to come together for a glass of beer and a barbecue as winter set in.
