Potential nominees have a week to finalise a submission to be considered for the 2013 Livestock Marketing Industry Achievement award.
The award is directed at managers and/or employees of livestock marketing facilities across Australia, but is also open to other saleyards industry stakeholders including stud and commercial affiliates of any livestock marketing facility. For example, live export procurement and processor buyers are eligible.
The winner, receiving a $2500 contribution to a study tour, will be announced at the upcoming Australian Livestock Market Association’s Saleyards Expo and conference being held on the Gold Coast from July 23-25.
Livestock Exchange is again sponsoring this year’s award, as a means of promoting continued industry improvement and the sharing of information and knowledge within the livestock marketing industry.
A panel of industry experts will judge entries based on excellence in work ethic, innovative ideas, industry service and/or active improvement of the livestock marketing industry.
Improvements, innovations and service need not be completed – organisers are keen to see entries which show evidence of innovative changes planned or in early stages of progress, that will benefit the business or the broader industry.
Previous winners have included Andrew Murdoch, manager of the Southern Regional Livestock Exchange at Mossvale, NSW (2011) and Paul White, manager of the Warrnambool Livestock Exchange (2012).
This year’s winner will receive a Livestock Study tour to an agreed destination includes airfares, car hire and accommodation to the value of $2500. It is expected that the winner will make a presentation of their tour findings at the following year’s ALMA conference.
