The 2017 Teys Australia Angus Youth National Roundup took place in Mt Gambier SA on the 12 – 15 January 2017.
Held over 4 days, the Roundup attracted 122 participants from ages 8 to 25 with all levels of cattle experience and provided both a learning and fun experience for all.
The educational sessions were delivered by experts in the industry & included topics such as halter making, livestock nutrition, animal selection as well as creating a business.
The competitions at the event included the Paraders classes, Junior Judging & Herdsperson competition.
The Special Dinner Dance was held on the Saturday night with 270 people in attendance. Thank-you to Laryn Gogel from SAL for leading the auction which raised money for Angus Youth.
Featured lots in the auction included a headbail, several elite embryo and semen packages, artwork, as well as a large amount of items featured in the silent auction.
The Roundup is supported by Teys Australia, 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 2017 Roundup was a success.
