Angus Youth is pleased to announce that they have awarded Lori Fogarty and Lochie McLachlan with the Angus Foundation LIVEXchange Conference Scholarships.
Unfortunately, due to restrictions posed by COVID-19, the LIVEXchange Conference, which was due to take place in November 2021 has been postponed, therefore Lori and Lochie will be offered their place when the conference returns in November 2022.
This conference is the major event for Australia’s livestock export industry, held every two years as a joint venture between LiveCorp and the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council (ALEC).
Angus Australia Breed Development Officer Jake Phillips looks forward to the recipients representing Angus Australia in 2022.
“These events are all about sharing information and insight into the livestock export trade, breaking down knowledge barriers, being open about industry challenges and demonstrating industry’s commitment and ongoing effort to improve animal welfare in supply chains,” said Mr Phillips.
“The overall aim of offering these scholarships is to build the knowledge of those selected about the live export industry and the beef industry as a whole while allowing them the opportunity to network with industry professionals and developing their personal skills.”
“Opportunities like attending this conference are invaluable for those who are interested in further developing their professional development. Both Lori and Lochie are passionate at furthering themselves within the beef industry, and I look forward to working with them as scholarship recipients.”
