Angus Youth Roundup was once again back in 2020, taking place in Toowoomba, QLD from Thursday January 16 to Sunday January 19.
The event saw more than 130 participants and 150 cattle from all the states and territories take part, despite unfavourable weather conditions taking hold around the country.
Roundup 2020 saw a different approach to the program, this year turning a focus to Northern production systems to celebrate the event returning to Queensland for the first time in 6 years.
The program saw various educational sessions and demonstrations, the Barnyard Olympics, new editions meat judging and commercial livestock junior judging, cattle classes and parader classes.
The Special Dinner Dance took place Saturday January 18 and saw more than 200 people come together for an evening of fundraising. The live and silent auctions raised over $16,900 to go to the ongoing support of Angus Youth programs. This amazing total is thanks to the generous bidders and under bidders on the evening, digging deep in support of the Angus Youth program.
The event supported by a number of a generous sponsors, whom without their support the event wouldn’t be possible.
The event was a great success and would not have been possible without the continuous work of the excellent Roundup Committee, under the guidance of Coordinator Steph Frankham. The 2020 committee were instrumental to ensuring the success of this event.
