Iconic meat processing company Teys Australia has partnered with Angus Youth Australia to be the naming rights sponsor of the 2017 Angus Youth National Roundup.
Teys has had a long tradition of sponsoring the Roundup each year, but in 2017 has increased their involvement.
Grant Garey, the General Manager for Feedlots with Teys Australia has highlighted the need to support the future of the beef industry as a key reason for their involvement and in particular to encourage the learning and development opportunities of the youth in the industry.
‘And we certainly want to raise awareness about Teys Australia among the youth of the industry’, he said.
‘We specifically want to support and promote the Angus breed as it has strong alignment with our premium brands; Teys Certified Angus, Riverine Premium Beef and Grasslands Premium Beef’.
The Teys Australia Angus Youth National Roundup will take place in Mt Gambier, South Australia from the 12 – 15 of January 2017. This will be the first time the Roundup has been held in South Australia.
Coordinator Kate Fairlie is very excited to have Teys Australia on board.
‘The Teys Australia Angus Youth National Roundup is the largest single breed event of its kind in Australia. To receive this kind of support from a well renowned company in the beef industry cements the fact that the Roundup and the Angus Youth program as a whole is extremely important in the development of young people in the beef industry’, Ms Fairlie said.
Angus Australia, Marketing and Communications Manager Diana Wood confirms Ms Fairlies’ statement by adding that it is great to see the recognition given to the Angus Youth program by Teys Australia
‘Teys Australia’s involvement highlights the importance of all facets of the beef industry supporting the development of youth in agriculture. To have Teys Australia as a major partner is a real credit to the Angus Youth program, with a number of past participants of the this program currently working for the company’, said Mrs Wood.
The 2017 Teys Australia Angus Youth National Roundup in Mt Gambier will be the 36th year that the event has been held.
In 2016 over 220 participants were involved in the educational opportunities and competitions on offer when the Roundup was held in Armidale, NSW.
