The Angus breed is not just Australia’s breed, it is a choice breed for producers around the world with its consistent performance in a range of markets. While the Angus breed is one size that fits most, what differs is the beef production systems they are featured in around the world.      

Recognising this, the Trans Tasman Travel Bursary, sponsored by the New England Travel Centre and the Angus Australia Foundation, provides an opportunity for a young person to observe the New Zealand beef industry. 

Offered annually, the Trans Tasman Travel Bursary provides an Angus Australia member aged between 18 and 30 years of age the opportunity to travel around New Zealand.       

The bursary covers return airfares for the recipient to travel to New Zealand, $ 2000 spending money and assistance to organize a tour to various seed-stock and commercial breeders across the country.    

The scholarship recipient is encouraged to spend at least four weeks in New Zealand to make the most of the opportunity.     

The Angus Australia network of staff, members and affiliated groups can provide assistance and insight to develop a tour to the recipient’s interest.    

Applications for the Trans Tasman Travel Bursary will open December 18, 2022 and will close February 2, 2023.
