Unfortunately, due to restrictions posed by COVID-19, the Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment Course, which was due to take place in September 2021 has been cancelled, so each of the five recipients will be offered their place in 2022.
Candina Crowden, Charlotte Nugent, Hamish Smith, Kristen Fredericksen and Liam Mowbray have each been selected for the Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment Course scholarships, which will see them take part in the course organised by the Angus NSW Committee in 2022.
The Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment Course is widely recognised as the most practical and hands on beef cattle selection course of its kind.
The course covers a wide range of topics ranging from using EBV’s, structural conformation and selection of market utilising Bos Taurus and Bos Indicus breeds and their crosses and will help participants through developing practical skills and information, presenting networking opportunities.
“Our recipients all come from both varied experience levels and backgrounds in the industry but are all enthusiastic for the opportunity to expand on their skills within cattle assessment and judging through this scholarship opportunity,” said Angus Australia Breed Development Officer Jake Phillips.
“The Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment Course gives affirming, practical skills that the recipients can take from the course and apply directly on farm.”
