World Angus Forum to share knowledge and showcase cattle in Australia

 The World Angus Forum is coming to Australia in 2025 bringing together Angus cattle breeders, enthusiasts, and industry professionals from around the world to share knowledge, showcase their cattle, and network with one another.

The forum is typically held every four years in a different host country and includes a variety of activities such as educational seminars, farm tours, and social events. 

“We are gearing up for the World Angus Forum and it is set to be the largest celebration of Angus cattle in Australia in a generation,” Angus Australia Extension Officer Nancy Crawshaw said.

“As part of this celebration and pre forum activities Angus Australia will be hosting an extensive youth program during a two-day expo event taking place at Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre (AELEC) in Tamworth, NSW, pulling together the largest showcase of Australian Angus cattle and genetics.” 

Thanks to the Angus Foundation, eight Angus Australia members aged between 18 and 25 will have the opportunity to apply to be selected for the Angus Australia teams competing at the World Angus Forum youth competition. 

The selected teams will compete against other teams from participating countries in a range of agriculturally based competitions which are designed to be fun, challenging and will undoubtedly be a remarkable networking event surrounded by likeminded individuals from across the world. 

In addition to the eight competition members, applications are also sought for an Australian team coach who will not compete but will lead the team and develop learning and supportive culture enabling the team members to enhance their skills and knowledge while also being competitive in the described disciplines. 

Angus Australia members aged between 25 and 35 years are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to be selected in this role. 

This position also includes assisting with organising a training event prior to the forum and other team needs such as uniforms and travel arrangements as required. 

“We encourage Angus Youth members who are interested in representing our nation in this exciting event to apply to be a team member or further yet in the role of coach should you be wanting to come on board in a leadership capacity,” said Nancy. 

“This event marks the first time the World Angus Forum has been on Australian shores in almost 30 years, so the opportunity to represent Australian as coach or team member on home soils really doesn’t come around very often!” 

The positions on the Australian team will be substantially funded from the Angus Foundation and sponsorship to contribute costs of travelling and competing in the competition. For application requirements and eligibility, please visit the Angus Australia website.
