Beef Cattle Assessment Course Scholarships – now open

September 5, 2018 2:59 pm

The Angus Australia Foundation will be providing a number of Angus Australia Members aged 16 to 30 years old the opportunity to attend the Beef Cattle assessment Course held at the prestigious Tocal Agricultural College 8th, 9th and 10th October 2018.

The Beef Cattle Assessment Course, now celebrating its 39th year, has been widely recognised as the most practical and hands on beef cattle selection course of its kind. It has been copied in most Australian States and NZ using the basic principles developed through experience.

The course embraces both newcomers and experienced cattle producers alike. A great deal of time and thought goes into the selection of the overjudges. They must possess the practical and communicative skills necessary to ensure all participants receive maximum benefit, given the varied levels of experience of participants. Although this course is organised by NSW Angus State Committee it is open to all beef cattle enthusiasts. It utilises both Bos Taurus and Bos Indicus breeds and their crosses over the duration of the course.

The Beef Cattle Assessment course is committed to the education of its participants in all aspects of the beef industry. We strive to make it challenging but also fun.

  • Increase the recipient’s knowledge of the beef industry
  • Increase the recipient’s knowledge and skills in judging beef cattle
