BEEF AND DAIRY SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS
A YOUNG Yea farmer has been selected to attend Beef Australia through a special sponsorship program.
Emily Webb Ware is from a family of fourth generation Angus farmers, and is currently a student at University of Melbourne - studying a Bachelor of Agriculture.
Emily’s family run a selfreplacing Angus herd of 400 cows, and it is not the first time she has been selected to represent the next generation of producers.
Having recently toured the United States’ meat industries as part of the Australian National Meat Judging Team, Emily was selected in the top five students from the Australian Intercollegiate Meat Judging Competition.
Selected for her knowledge and enthusiasm, Emily will now be able to attend Beef Australia, thanks to a sponsorship program run by the Angus Australia Foundation.
Beef Australia is held every three years and is a world class event that showcases more than 4000 cattle along with hosting numerous seminars, property tours and conferences.
Held in Rockhampton QLD, Beef Australia attracts more than 75,000 local, interstate and international visitors.
“To attend Beef Australia would be an incredible learning experience,” Emily said.
“I know that I learn best when I am in a hands on situation or learning directly from industry professionals.
“Going to Beef Australia would allow me to spend the week engaging with a variety of people and gaining as much knowledge of beef pro- duction and the wider beef industry as I can.”
Other winners of the scholarship were Jack Laurie from Moppy in New South Wales, and Laura Wishart from Western Australia.
