North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

HEADED TO BEEF AUSTRALIA: Emily Webb Ware, from Yea, has won a schol­ar­ship through the An­gus Australia Foun­da­tion to at­tend Beef Australia.
