The 2018 Thomas Foods International Angus Youth Roundup took place in Wodonga from the 11th to the 14th of January 2018.
Held over 4 days, the Roundup attracted 145 participants from ages 8 to 25 with all levels of cattle experience and provided both a learning and fun experience for all.
The educational sessions were delivered by experts in the industry & included topics such as halter making, junior judging, livestock marketing as well genetic selection.
The competitions at the event included the Paraders classes, Junior Judging & Herdsperson competitions.
The Special Dinner Dance was held on the Saturday night with 340 people in attendance. Thank-you to Sam Hunter for leading the auction which raised $21,000 for Angus Youth.
Featured lots in the auction included several elite embryo and semen packages, mystery items and artworks as well as a diverse range of items featured in the silent auction.
The Roundup is supported by Thomas Foods International, Angus Youth and Angus Australia, however, the event is coordinated by a young and enthusiastic committee who volunteer their time to ensure the success of this annual event. This year’s committee went above and beyond the usual call of duty to ensure that the 2018 Roundup was successful and professional.
