Auction raises over $9,000 for the Angus Foundation
During the recent Angus National Conference, the Angus Foundation held a genetics auction raising $9040 for the Foundation.
The auction comprised of 16 genetic lots, kindly donated by members of Angus Australia and genetics companies. The Angus Foundation would like to extend a sincere thank you to the following for their donations; The Glen Angus, Pathfinder Angus, Booroomooka Angus, Performance Genetics, Semex Australia, Little Meadows Angus, Our Farm Angus, Prime Angus, Bellaspur Angus, KI Blacks and Esslemont Angus.
Donations by these people and subsequently the purchasers of the genetic lots go a long way in supporting the initiatives of the Angus Foundation; helping Angus Australia to conduct youth development, education and research programs.
These programs are designed to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry, to provide professional development opportunities for young beef breeders, and to assist in conducting research, development and education programs for the benefit of Angus breeders and the wider Australian beef industry.
The Angus Foundation and Angus Australia are grateful at the generosity shown by the Angus community, industry partners and all those who made this year’s genetic auction a success. These are investments that will help the Angus Foundations initiatives for years to come.
