Five extremely happy growers – from McLaren Vale to Dimbulah – are celebrating delivery of a brand new $16,500 Polaris Ranger UTV following the first draw in our Year of the Grower promotion. Celebrating with the winners were the five rural supply stores where the growers purchased their prize-winning Bayer crop protection products, with each store receiving a $1,000 Eftpos Gift Card.

The Year of the Grower promotion rewards growers working in broadacre or horticulture with an entry into a draw for every $100 spent in a single transaction on Bayer crop protection products. The winners are spread geographically to ensure growers across the country have a fair chance of winning. The first draw winners and stores they purchased from are: Jack Derrick through Landmark Temora (NSW), Richard Kirkland through Millicent Farm Supplies (SA), Kevin Watterson through Frankland Rural (WA), Michelle Milicevic through TGT Dimbulah (QLD) and John Cranwell through E.E Muir & Sons Mclaren Vale (SA).

A typical response came from the Cranwell brothers, John and Robert, of A.E. Cranwell & Sons, Nairne, SA who were “A little shocked, but extremely grateful to win.” Ante Milicevic, whose wife was a winner through the TGT Dimbulah store, said of his new Polaris Ranger “It’s going to get quite a bit of use on the farm – getting around checking irrigation on the limes and tea trees – it will be very handy”.
