Chin­chilla gra­zier short-listed

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

A CHIN­CHILLA gra­zier has been short-listed as one of six pro­duc­ers across Aus­tralia and New Zealand up for a pres­ti­gious award.

The Zanda McDon­ald Award recog­nises young peo­ple work­ing in pri­mary in­dus­try and sup­ports their fu­ture ca­reer de­vel­op­ment.

Among the six short-listed for the prize is Chin­chilla’s Nick Bosham­mer, Di­rec­tor of NBG Hold­ings Pty Ltd.

Mr Bosham­mer said the award was es­tab­lished by the Plat­inum Pri­mary Pro­duc­ers group in hon­our of one of their in­spir­ing found­ing mem­bers, Zanda McDon­ald, af­ter he died in a tragic ac­ci­dent.

He said the award looks for “young peo­ple in the in­dus­try who have sim­i­lar at­tributes to Zanda”.

The ap­pli­cants will be in­ter­viewed later this month to nar­row down the fi­nal­ists.

Mr Bosham­mer said he was “honoured to be even thought of”.

“It’s phe­nom­e­nal, I don’t know how to ex­plain it, I don’t have words, to be even thought of in a group that aligns with Zanda McDon­ald... to be close to those at­tributes that Zanda McDon­ald pos­sessed,” he said.
