How can we help you?

Bayer Boervrou van die Jaar 2024

Over the years, Bayer has been committed to honouring those individuals who make a difference in the agricultural industry.

With the Bayer Boervrou van die Jaar competition, we would like to give recognition to the women who form the backbone of our farming community: whether it’s our farmers’ wives or the women who stand at the head of a farming operation. 

The criteria for the competition will be based on the woman’s overall involvement on the farm as well as in her broader community.

We know the hard work you put in on the farm and the difference you make in your community.

That’s why we are calling on all Bayer farmers’ wives and female Bayer farmers to enter the Boervrou van die Jaar competition.

Don’t miss out on the chance to win big!

Who can be nominated?

Female farmers, or the wives of farmers, can be nominated. Please note that only female farmers or the wives of farmers who farm with one or more Bayer or DEKALB® products may be nominated for this competition.

Nominations can be submitted by the farmer/wife herself, or by any affiliate of the farmer or farmer’s wife. This includes the farmer, a Bayer or DEKALB® representative, family members, friends and/or community members.


Entries open on 15 May and close at midnight on the 15th of July


Two winners will be announced. The winner in the category for Female Farmer of the Year, will walk away with R15 000 worth of products while the winner in the Farmer’s Wife category will win R10 000 to be donated to a charity of her choice. Both winners will also receive a R2 000 self-care voucher, a R1 500 voucher from Uppe Marketing and three signed books by author Milanie Vosloo.

When will the winners be announced?

The winners will be announced at a special event in September 2024. Watch this space! More information regarding the award ceremony will be communicated at a later stage.
