Thomas Foods International has continued to show their support for the Angus Youth program by partnering with the Angus Youth National Roundup 2019 as naming sponsor.

The Thomas Foods International Angus Youth Roundup will be held in Armidale, NSW from the 10th to the 13th of January 2019.

2019 will mark the second year that Thomas Foods International (TFI) has partnered with Angus Australia as naming sponsor for Roundup, having sponsored the 2018 event held in Wodonga.

When Thomas Foods International initially joined with Angus Youth for Roundup 2018, CEO Darren Thomas highlighted the need to support emerging leaders of the beef industry, which championed the reasoning for the Thomas Foods International support of Roundup.

Mr Thomas prioritized the need for the encouragement of education, development and networking opportunities available for the youth members of the beef industry.

Roundup coordinator Zac McInerney said that the support that Thomas Foods International has shown for Roundup is a testament to their dedication to the younger generations of the beef industry.

“Roundup is an event that works to support the young beef enthusiasts in the industry, who are the future leaders of the industry,” Mr McInerney said.

“To have Thomas Foods International on for another year goes to show the support the company has for the up and coming leaders of their industry.”

Angus Australia Events and Youth Development Officer Candice Liddle said that she is excited to be partnering with Thomas Foods International for another excellent year of Roundup.

“We understand that this has been a difficult year for agribusinesses, however we are extremely thrilled to have them back on board for another Roundup,” she said.

 “Without our sponsors, like Thomas Foods International, Roundup wouldn’t be the excellent event and opportunity it is for our Angus Youth members.”

The Thomas Foods International Angus Youth National Roundup will be celebrating its 38th year in 2019, with over 200 participants from around the country to congregate in Armidale for the largest single breed event of its kind in Australia.

The event will also kick start the centenary celebrations for Angus Australia.

The program features educational sessions and competitions, which allows for participants to enjoy and learn without the necessity for the use of their own livestock. There is any also a fun novelty activities at the event including heifer show competitions, Special Dinner Dance, Barn Yard Olympics and parents bus trip.
