REGISTRATIONS have opened for the 2022 NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup after it was postponed earlier this year. The  event is being held in Wodonga, Victoria on 6 – 9 October.

All members of the beef industry aged between 8 and 26 are encouraged to register for the four-day event, with the Roundup event open to all competitors, from novice to experienced.

In addition to the educational experiences and competitions such as herdsman, junior judging and paraders, there will be several excellent awards on offer at the event including the Merridale Angus Aspiring Breeder Award, EJ Angus Encouragement Award and the Matthew George Citizenship Award.

Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips looks forward to welcoming participants to the first Roundup event since 2020.

“It has been long awaited, but we are pleased to have registrations open for the 2022 NH Foods Australia Angus Youth National Roundup,” said Mr Phillips.

“We are looking forward to bringing together young members of the beef industry for this four-day staple event, which has unfortunately been missing out of the calendar since the last Roundup in Toowoomba in January 2020. We thank our Roundup Organising Committee for their work and our sponsors for their support in holding this event.

“We encourage past participants and those who have never attended before to register for the event, which will be host to a jam-packed program aimed at both practical and educational skills development.”

Furthermore, the 2022 Roundup will have fun in store for the parents/guardians, with the parents and sponsors bus trip organised for those attending Roundup with their children.

“The parents bus trip will be a great day out for parents and guardians, visiting cattle studs, All Saints Winery and the Corowa Distillery and Chocolate Factory,” said Roundup Coordinator Toni Nugent.

  • Registrations will close on Monday 18 July and can be made on the Angus Australia website
