Ruralco has partnered with Angus Youth Australia to be to become a major sponsor of the Teys Australia Angus Youth National Roundup to be held at Mount Gambier between the 12-15th January, 2017.
Through Ruralco’s three main Southern Livestock businesses; Southern Australian Livestock (SAL), Rodwells and Platinum Livestock the group have placed their support behind the four day Angus Youth event and taken a Diamond sponsorship package.
Spokesperson for the Ruralco group, Wayne Hall from Platinum said that the Ruralco associated businesses were keen to throw their support behind any event that was assisting with the development of young people within the rural industry.
“As a group we are very selective of what type of events we sponsor – we are presented with opportunities to sponsor many, many events and it’s hard to see the value in some of those events,” Mr Hall said.
“But we support, and see a lot of value in events like the Angus Youth Roundup’, he said.
“The development of young people within the rural industry is extremely important and Angus Australia is a very professionally run organisation that we will enjoy being involved with,” said Mr Hall.
“Many of our commercial and stud clients through SAL, Rodwells and Platinum have links Angus Australia and quite a few of them have kids coming through the system – we will enjoy assisting this event to assist them to keep developing new skills,” he said.
Angus Youth Development and Education Officer, Haylee Herriot is pleased to have an iconic company such as Ruralco on board to sponsor the event.
‘To have a progressive agricultural company willing to associate with and support Angus Youth, provides us with the reassurance that we are providing young beef cattle enthusiasts with a fantastic learning platform’ she said.
There will be Ruralco, SAL, Rodwells and Platinum representatives at the event during the four days.
