Angus Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Nancy Crawshaw in the role of Extension Officer.



Nancy developed a passion for agriculture and genetics growing up on her parents’ sheep, beef, and Angus Stud property in Nuhaka, Northen Hawkes Bay, located on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

At University, Nancy pursued a career in agricultural science and discovered meat science through her study abroad program in America. Nancy enjoys learning about the role genetics/environment play to produce a high-quality product for the end consumer.

In her role at Angus Australia, Nancy will be working within the member engagement team under Extension Manager Jake Phillips and will be responsible for providing support and education to Angus Australia members in the application of genetic improvement technologies and other Angus Australia services.

Nancy looks forward to working hands on with Angus members and producers.

“My role will involve working with Angus producers to help explain the tools and technologies available to them, and also work with them to achieve their individual breeding objectives and goals for their herds,” she said.

Nancy has also been involved in the programs and initiatives provided by Angus Australia as a member of the 2022 cohort of the Gen Angus Future Leaders Program, which saw her take part in the three-day intensive leadership workshop.

Angus Australia CEO Scott Wright says of Nancy’s appointment, “Part of the Angus Australia strategy is to build a team of highly competent Extension Officers. During the recruitment process we quickly identified Nancy’s depth of knowledge and immense passion for the Angus breed.”

“Immediately we could see that she would be a superb fit.  I am delighted to welcome Nancy to Angus Australia and can see great value ahead for our members.”
