The 2015 Angus Youth National Roundup was held in Wodonga from the 15th – 18th January and was a major success, clearly demonstrating why it is widely touted as the premier event for young beef cattle enthusiasts within Australia. Attended by over 150 Angus Youth members aged between 8 and 25 years of age, the National Roundup was conducted over four days, with participants partaking in a range of activities and social events.
The 2015 Angus Youth National Roundup Committee decided to dedicate the event to the late Phillip Hughes from Four O Eight Angus. Since Four O Eights conception in 2009, Phillip was a huge supporter of the youth program.
The Special Dinner Dance was also held on the Saturday night with over 300 people in attendance. Thank-you to Ben Redfern for leading the auction which raised over $25,000 to put directly towards the Roundup fund. Featured lots in the auction included a headbail generously donated by Leichts CIA, several elite embryo and semen packages, as well as a large amount of items featured in the silent auction.
The Roundup is supported by Angus Youth and Angus Australia, however, the event is coordinated by a young and enthusiastic committee who volunteer their time to ensure the success of this annual event. This year’s committee went above and beyond the usual call of duty to ensure that the 2015 Roundup was the best one yet. Thank-you to everyone on the committee.
