If you are heading to the NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup, there are a number of great scholarships and awards on offer!

Merridale Angus Aspiring Breeder Award

Sponsored by Merridale

In 2015, Merridale Angus introduced a new award at the Angus Youth National Roundup. The Merridale Angus Aspiring Breeder Award is in recognition of an Angus Youth member who does not already have an Angus stud or the financial backing to start their own immediately but has a strong desire to breed their own Angus cattle. The Collin’s family believe it is important to support the youth in the industry and give them as many opportunities as possible to start their own cattle breeding operation. The recipient of this award will receive a registered Angus heifer.

All Roundup participants are considered for this award.
