for young stockman award 2016
The Matthew George Young Stockman Award provides an opportunity for young breeders, aged 18 to 25 years, to undertake an overseas study tour of beef cattle breeding programs, developments and practices. They also act as young ambassadors for the beef cattle industry in Australia.
Created in memory of Matthew George, a young cattle breeder from the Lake Goldsmith Stockyard Hill area, this annual Award is offered nationally in July with the winner being announced at the Royal Melbourne Show.
The Award is in its 7th year with previous winners returning from their study tours with a wealth of knowledge and experience to pass on to their peers within the industry. Links to their stories can be found here
Young cattle breeders are encouraged to apply
