A QUIET achiever, Mohammed Shameem Khan, let his victory do the talking when he was named best beef farmer in the West at the Western Agricultural Show awards night in Ba on Wednesday.

It was a long way from his Malomalo homestead in Sigatoka but like other award winners on the night, he was pleased to be recognised for his hard work and soaked in the celebrations with his wife and children.

"I'm happy with this award because hard work has paid off," he said. "However, we won't stop here."

Mr Khan started off with 12 heads of cattle in 2009 and today lays claim to 109.

Other awardees included Rakesh Chand of Toko in Tavua, who won the Dairy Farmer award. Waisale Kurisaravi of Tagitagi in Cuvu, Sigatoka took home the Best Sheep Farmer of the West award, while the Goat Farmer award went to Nashir Ali of Vaivai, Lautoka.

Pranil Singh of Kulukulu, Sigatoka claimed the Poultry Farmer award and the Agriculture Farmer of the West award went to Dr Hassan Dean of Valele, Ba.
