Another year, another excellent Roundup

January 16, 2019 3:52 pm

The 2019 Thomas Foods International Angus Youth Roundup took place in Armidale, NSW from the 10th to the 13th of January.

171 competitors from Australia, New Zealand and Germany flocked to Armidale to participate in the four-day event.

The weekend was full of fun and educational activities, from the Backyard Olympics, cattle classes, junior judging, Paraders, education sessions, a mock bull sale and the Special Dinner Dance.  The participants worked hard to ensure that their animals, whether it be their own or ballot cattle generously supplied by the ballot animal sponsors, were well taken care of and presented well for the various cattle activities.

The Special Dinner Dance was a roaring success, with 380 people attending on Saturday night.  The live and silent auctions raised over $25,000 for Angus Youth programs, smashing previous records for the most money raised in any Angus Australia auction, a credit to the generous buyers on the evening supporting the Angus Youth program.

Roundup also kicked off the first of the Angus Australia centenary celebrations and played host to a small opening event to launch the year of celebrations.

The event, proudly supported by Thomas Foods International, Angus Youth and Angus Australia was a great success and would not have been possible without the tireless work of the enthusiastic Roundup Committee.  The 2019 committee were instrumental to ensuring the success of this wonderful event.
