The Angus Australia Foundation along with the Australian Cattle Breeders Association are offering 5 positions to attend the Young Breed Leaders Workshop 28th – 30th October 2019 in Armidale NSW. The scholarship will cover the cost to participate in the workshop.
In July, 2017 ARCBA ran a very successful one-day Workshop for Young Breed Leaders. A number of the participants have already secured management positions in Breed Societies.
In October 2019, ARCBA will run a longer and more comprehensive Workshop over 2 ½ days in Armidale. This will include management training and simulation of a board environment; the digital technologies of the future at the “Smart Farm”; case studies with successful breeders using the latest genetic technologies; a Project design exercise and legal responsibilities for Directors of incorporated Breed Societies.
For young breeders who are time poor at this time of the year many will be able to attend the Workshop in 3 elapsed days including travel to the Workshop and the return journey to your respective home bases. Those with a thirst for knowledge and more time may wish to stay for another two days to participate in postworkshop activities of ARCBA and the Association for the Advancement for Animal Breeding and Genetics (AAABG).
As in 2017, this ARCBA Workshop is intended to prepare participants for management roles in Australia’s cattle breeding industry and particularly in breed societies.
The opportunity is open to Angus Australia members aged 20 to 35 years old who have a keen interest in beef industry.
