Angus Youth is pleased to announce that NH Foods Australia has come on board as the naming rights sponsor of the Angus Youth National Roundup, taking place January 13th – 16th, 2022 in Wodonga Victoria.
The NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup is the leading four-day event for young beef enthusiasts aged 8-25, which sees upwards of 120 plus competitors taking part in the event each year.
The event is open to both novice and experienced competitors alike and mixes educational and hands on activities.
Angus Australia Breed Development Officer Jake Phillips said that to have the support of a company like NH Foods shows their commitment to the future of the beef industry.
“We are very excited to work with NH Foods Australia, their feedlot Whyalla Beef and the largest Verified Black Angus Beef Brand, Angus Reserve to bring the NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup to the beef industry. It is excellent to have them involved in making this event possible and we look forward to them assisting us in making the NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup a roaring success when we take it to Wodonga in January.”
“We know that without the support of our sponsors, our event would not be possible, so we thank NH Foods Australia and all other sponsors for throwing their support behind the Roundup.”
Representatives from Whyalla Beef will be attending the NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup to talk with producers, as well as present educational opportunities to participants.
While those that attend the Special Dinner Dance on the Saturday night will be treated to the culinary delights of Angus Reserve.
Representative of NH Foods Australia, Andrew McDonald, director marketing, sales and corporate affairs said the following.
“The 2022 event will be the first time NH Foods Australia is the main sponsor. For us, it’s the right time to be involved and inspire the next generation of cattle enthusiasts. As we continue to expand our Angus Reserve brand, we’re proud to know the future of the industry will be in good hands as attendees learn and network with likeminded people.”
Tony Fitzgerald, general manager Whyalla Beef feedlot, added “We’re looking forward to joining next year’s event. It’s the first time Whyalla Beef team members will be participating and it’s important we take the opportunity to do so. We know the program provides the attendees a unique environment in which they can learn all about our industry and we’re looking forward to sharing our passion with them.”
