Jurjen Oosterhuis has been chosen as the Best Farmer 2010. Oosterhuis, who farms in Hornhuizen in the province of Groningen, took the part-time Major in Entrepreneurship last year at VHL in Leeuwarden.
A thousand teams in total started the competition at the end of October. A VHL student ended second. Kees Welboren, a third-year Dairy Farming student in Leeuwarden, formed Team Camping de Westert together with his parents.
The business game is an initiative of ABN Amro and a number of agrarian companies, including the supplier Agrifirm, the animal breeding organization CRV, the publisher Agrio and the plant breeding firm Limagrain. With this game they aim to encourage entrepreneurship among dairy farmers and arable farmers, who increasingly have to operate on the open market.
