If you are heading to the 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.

Trans-Tasman Scholarship

Sponsored by New England Travel and the Angus Australia Foundation

The recipient of the Trans-Tasman Exchange will embark on a trip around New Zealand, visiting Angus studs, commercial operation, feedlots and attend field days and sales. The exchange will involve moving throughout the country experiencing the New Zealand beef industry and the strength of the Angus breed globally.

Sponsored by the New England Travel Centre and the Angus Australia Foundation, the scholarship provides annually an Angus Australia member aged between 18 and 30 years of age the opportunity to travel around New Zealand
