The 2023 GenAngus Future Leaders program has got off to a swinging start in Adelaide, with twelve emerging leaders of the beef industry embarking on a three-day intensive workshop to help them start their beef cattle business or advance their existing business.

Participants were invited to ‘take the first step’, both figuratively and literally, with the first activity seeing them conquer their fears as they took to the tree tops on the Adelaide TreeClimb.

The day wound up with a team building exercise in Escape Hunt Adelaide, followed by the official dinner featuring Achmea Australia CEO Emma Thomas, Angus Australia CEO Scott Wright, Meat & Livestock Managing Director Jason Strong, and a panel of past GenAngus participants including Jack Laurie, Nancy Crawshaw and Brodie Collins.

The GenAngus program would not be possible without the strategic alliance between Angus Australia and specialist farm insurer Achmea Australia.

“Through our strategic alliance with Angus Australia and Angus Youth Australia, we are immensely proud to see the GenAngus Program going from strength to strength, attracting bright young beef leaders and leading industry experts from across the country,” said Emma Thomas, CEO of Achmea Australia.
