Denyer selected for 2024 Angus Foundation NH Foods cadetship

 Angus Australia and NH Foods are pleased to announce Toreen Denyer has been selected as the recipient of the 2024 Angus Foundation NH Foods cadetship. 

Now in its second year, the Angus Foundation NH Foods Cadetship provides the recipient with an authentic and valuable experience of the beef industry and NH Foods Australia’s core activities. 

Toreen hails from a property near Gloucester, NSW. She is studying a Bachelor of Agriculture through the University of New England, whilst also working on her family farm. 

“I applied for this Cadetship to gain a detailed insight into the entire supply chain of beef production,” said Toreen. 

“I hope to broaden my knowledge and make new connections within the red meat industry from this opportunity.” 

Over the course of four weeks Toreen will experience the key areas of NH Foods: breeding, feedlotting, production, marketing, and sales through a series of placements within the company structure. 

As she moves through the cadetship, Toreen will spend time within the day-to-day operations of Whyalla Beef, Australia’s most modern and technologically advanced feedlot. Supplementing the feedlot experience will be time spent at two of the company’s processing plants: Oakey (based in Southern QLD, it is one of the largest in Australia) and Wingham (located on the mid north coast of NSW). 

Time in the company’s Sydney head office is also a feature, including exposure to the marketing and sales activities of the branded beef programs. During her time at NH Foods, Toreen will have contact to key players in the industry with the opportunity to expand her professional network. 

Along with her placement with NH Foods, as part of the cadetship Toreen also complete the Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Course, an intensive five-day workshop recognised as one of the longest running rural leadership programs in the nation. 

“We are excited to have Toreen onboard as the 2024 NH Foods Cadet and hope that through the experience, she will be exposed to the extraordinary parts of our beef supply chain that work tirelessly to take the very best product from conception to consumption,” said Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips. 

“Toreen was a standout applicant, and we are all very pleased to see her be awarded this year’s cadetship with NH Foods.”
