The World Angus Forum is coming to Australia in 2025! The World Angus Forum is an exclusive global event that brings together Angus cattle breeders, enthusiasts, and industry professionals from around the world to share knowledge, showcase their cattle, and network with one another. The forum is typically held every four years in a different host country and includes a variety of activities such as educational seminars, farm tours, and social events.  

Thanks to the Angus Foundation, eight Angus Australia members aged between 18 and 25 will have the opportunity to be selected for the Angus Australia teams competing at the World Angus Forum.  

The selected teams will compete against other teams from participating countries in a range of agriculturally based competitions which are designed to be fun, challenging and will undoubtedly be a remarkable networking event surrounded by likeminded individuals from across the world.   

In addition to the eight competition members, applications are also sought for an Australian team coach who will not compete but will lead the team and develop learning and supportive culture enabling the team members to enhance their skills and knowledge while also being competitive in the described disciplines.   

The positions on the Australian teams will be substantially funded from the Angus Foundation and sponsorship to contribute costs of travelling and competing in the competition.
