In her role, Hanlie will be part of the Member Engagement Team and will work closely with Extension Manager Jake Phillips in order to provide support and education to Angus Australia members and the beef supply chain across Australia and New Zealand using Angus and Angus influenced genetics.  

“I’m looking forward to serving the Angus community by helping breeders understand and best implement the tools that are available to them for the betterment of their herds’ profitability and efficiency, as well as the larger Angus breed,” said Hanlie.  

Hanlie was born in South Africa, raised in Southern Queensland and has had a long connection with the beef industry.
