Angus Youth Australia is pleased to announce that the Coordinator for the 2021 Angus Youth National Roundup will be Annie Pumpa.
Annie resides in Tabletop, NSW where she works for ABS Australia as a sales representative for both beef and dairy.
Annie has a long history within the beef industry, having grown up in Culcairn NSW in the Riverina on a family run mixed enterprise operation.
“I have always been involved with cattle since I can remember on a commercial basis,” she said.
“I delved into the seedstock sector over the last 10 years through the agriculture program at Billabong High School in 2011.”
Annie looks forward to stepping up to the Coordinator role and working with her committee and Youth Development Officer Candice Liddle in presenting an excellent and informative event.
Provided the Roundup is able to take place it is likely to be not only the first youth event to kick off in 2021 but, possibly the first event since the cancellation of most shows and youth events across Australia since the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The possibility of bringing together and reuniting the youth and showing community across Australia will make it an event I believe will be memorable and one not to be missed,” said Annie.
“I believe that youth events are an exceptional way to expose educational resources and networking avenues for the next generation.
“I believe it is the responsibility of experienced industry individuals of all sections of our industry to collaborate and blend together so that accurate information can be given and in return we know that the future of the industry will not only be in good hands but it will thrive. I hope this is something that the Angus Roundup committee can achieve.”
Angus Youth Development Officer Candice Liddle looks forward to working with Annie and her committee to host an excellent event for Angus Youth.
“I congratulate Annie for her appointment in the role as 2021 Roundup Coordinator. Annie has great enthusiasm in regards to ensuring educational and informative opportunities are available to youth in the industry, and with her committee I believe will host an excellent event in 2021.”
“I look forward to working with Annie and her committee in the upcoming months in preparation for Roundup 2021 in Wodonga.”
The Angus Youth National Roundup will take place in Wodonga, VIC on January 14-17, 2021. To keep up to date with the latest Roundup news, visit the Roundup location on the Angus Australia website here.
