An Otago farming couple have won this year's National Ewe Hogget competition.

Preston and Tori Hope from Hindon, in the Strath Taieri area, were also the Perendale Breed section winners.

They receive prizes worth $1000 and will host a Field Day in November.

The Ravensdown Large Flock Award went to Jeff Farm owned by the Salvation Army.

It returns its profits to fund the training of students on the farm, as well as offering scholarships to Lincoln, Telford and Taratahi.
