Applications close Monday, September 13th at 5pm! The Angus Foundation, with the support of the Australian Livestock Export Corporation (LiveCorp), will award two scholarships to give Angus Australia members the opportunity to participate in this Conference.
This conference is the major event for Australia’s livestock export industry, held every two years as a joint venture between LiveCorp and the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council (ALEC).
In 2021 the scholarship will be to attend the LIVEXchange 21 Forum in Darwin NT, 10 – 11 November. For more information about the forum, head to the LIVEXchange21 Website
The theme for 2021 is ‘From here to there together: strengthening our foundations and creating connections’, with presentations to centre on the capabilities of the live export industry, strength of markets and the values shared by everyone in the supply chain.
These events are all about sharing information and insight into the livestock export trade, breaking down knowledge barriers, being open about industry challenges and demonstrating industry’s commitment and ongoing effort to improve animal welfare in supply chains.
Members aged between 18 and 30 with a commitment to the Australian beef industry and the Angus breed are encouraged to apply.
Each scholarship recipient will be provided with $1500 to assist in covering costs associate with attending the event (for example: flights, accommodation and social functions), while LiveCorp kindly provide the scholarship recipients with Conference only passes and membership rates to the Stockpersons accreditation course.
