Meal tickets

Meal tickets can still be purchased for parents/guardians/siblings. All Roundup participants have all meals included in their registration fee. Please note, the Wednesday night 10 January dinner wasn’t included on the original registration page so if you would like to order tickets for this dinner for parents/guardians/siblings please head to the store to purchase meal tickets – you just need your child’s registration confirmation number.


Cattle bump in

For those bringing cattle, bump in is Tuesday 9 January 3-6pm and Wednesday 10 January 9am-1pm. All trucks must enter AELEC through Gate 2 and follow Horseshoe Drive around to the Undercover cattle yards to unload on the southern side of the AELEC venue. Please note – No cattle or gear are to be on the grounds before 3pm Tuesday 9 January.

To assist with planning, please advise your estimated arrival time to Toni Nugent, Roundup Event Manager, E: by 4 January.  

Please ensure that all your gear (e.g. blowers, clippers, leads) is tested and tagged prior to arriving at AELEC.


Cattle details

There are still some outstanding pestivirus and animal health declarations. It is a requirement of entry that these documents are submitted – failure to do so may mean cattle cannot be received into the competition. Your NVD must be submitted on arrival at the Roundup venue.

Please send all outstanding paperwork through as a matter of urgency to Toni Nugent, E: by 22 December 2023.


2024 NH Foods Angus Youth National Roundup Rules & Regulations

There are several rules and regulations participants must be aware of prior to Roundup.



For those camping at AELEC, please enter via Gate 2 and follow Horseshoe Drive around to your camping sites located behind Stable Blocks D and E (southern side of the venue). There is a toilet block located at the end of Stable Block E that can be used for the duration of your stay.

There are still some camping spots available at AELEC. Please book directly with AELEC through the AELEC website. Bookings can only be made by contacting AELEC – DO NOT contact myself or Angus Australia to book a camping site – camping bookings are separate to your Roundup registrations and are not being handled by Angus Australia.

Thanks to our sponsors!

Without the support of our amazing sponsors, Roundup would not be possible.
