The Angus Foundation, Accelerating and Enhancing the Angus Breed 

Critical objective 5 for Angus Australia is to ‘Attract, develop and retain talent to accelerate and enhance the Angus breed’. One of the Key Outcomes under this objective is to ‘Develop Future Leaders – through scholarships, training programs and internships, encourage and develop individuals commencing their careers in the beef industry.’ 

Throughout the course of 2023, the Angus Foundation has been doing exactly this by providing a myriad of educational opportunities for young beef industry leaders through the scholarships, awards and bursaries that are on offer. 

These programs are designed to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry, to provide professional development opportunities for young beef breeders, and to assist in conducting research, development and educational programs for the benefit of Angus breeders and the wider Australian beef industry. 

Congratulation to everyone that has been a beneficiary of the Angus Foundation in 2023.
