7th July – 10th July 2021
Herefords Australia Youth invites all young agricultural enthusiasts to attend the 2021 Herefords Australia Youth National Expo. This year’s event will be held at the Wodonga Exhibition Centre from Wednesday 7th of July to Saturday 10th of July 2021.
This event has been designed to give young people the opportunity to build their knowledge and understanding of the beef industry, in a safe and welcoming environment. Activities will target all age groups and experience levels, with demonstrations ranging from halter making and knot tying to practical demonstrations on feed milling and nutrient conversions. We have placed a strong focus on ensuring that the demonstrations are age appropriate, and that practical skills and knowledge will be able to be taken away from the event.
For those that don’t have access to a suitable Hereford animal, there will be loan heifers available. Simply select ‘Loan Heifer required’ in the entry form and leave the rest to us.
In a new initiative added in 2019 to the National Hereford Youth Expo, Herefords Australia Youth will provide financial support for a participating Herefords Australia Youth member seeking an educational travel experience (destination of their choice) to further develop their knowledge and understanding of the breed on a greater scale. The successful applicant will receive up to $5,000 to embark on their nominated educational trip. However due to COVID – 19 we have decided to make this scholarship a National Travel Scholarship worthy of $2000
Travel destination(s) and duration is to be chosen and nominated by the applicant using the below application form.
Applications must be received by 15 October 2021.
