While the unfortunate decision was made to postpone the NH Foods Angus Youth National Roundup in January, Angus Youth and the Angus Foundation still had the pleasure to present a number of the awards and bursaries to Angus Youth members who would have been taking part in the festivities.
The Stewart Award, Cornell Shield, Angus Australia Business Branding Award, Intermediate and Senior Bursaries and the Trans-Tasman Travel Bursary were each awarded during the weeklong social media presentation.
Angus Australia Breed Development Officer Jake Phillips was pleased that while the Roundup did not go ahead, these members of the industry were still recognised for their achievements.
“Postponing the NH Foods Angus Youth National Roundup was definitely a difficult decision; however it gave the Roundup Organising Committee great pleasure to be able to present, albeit virtually, a number of the awards and bursaries that were up for offer to Roundup participants and applicants.”
“It is important that we were able to go ahead and present these awards to their worthy recipients, who each within their own ways are contributing to the development and growth of the Australia beef industry.”
“Giving these young people the chance to continue their own personal development in the industry, or giving the recognition deserved for their contribution to the Angus Youth program and young people in the industry through the awards presented, is what the Roundup event is all about.”
