Chinchilla grazier short-listed
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.
