Milling Wheat Challenge 2015

The sixth Milling Wheat Challenge competition was launched on the 12th January with a closing date of 1st May. The Challenge is open to all UK farmers growing bread-making (Group 1 & 2) wheat.

The aim of the competition is to find the UK’s outstanding growers of quality milling wheat and to identify those who have a good understanding of their end market, their business costs and an ability to reflect both in their marketing of milling wheat.

The competition has become established as a way for Britain’s flour millers to formally recognise the value of the country’s best growers to the processing trade.  Millers are committed to working with UK wheat growers and the Challenge aims to identify farmers who combine attention to detail with end-customer awareness and business acumen to create a win: win for the whole wheat chain.

Entry forms are available via the nabim and HGCA websites. The three finalists will be announced at the Cereals Event on 10th June. On-farm judging of the finalists will take place in late June.

The competition judges are Martin Savage from nabim, Richard Laverick from HGCA and Lincolnshire Farmer Mark Ireland.
