The Angus Foundation will once again award two scholarships to give Angus Australia members the opportunity to participate in the Australian Lot Feeder’s Association’s (ALFA) SmartBeef Conference. 
SmartBeef is the grain fed beef industry’s technical conference. The event this year will be on 11-12th October, Tamworth NSW and will draw together feedlot operators and their staff, nutritionists, veterinarians, regulators, service providers and others involved in the grain fed beef supply chain. 
SmartBeef attracts delegates from around the country for a celebration and showcase of the sector. Delegates walk away from this event informed, inspired, motivated and even better connected with their industry peers. 
With a theme of ‘Smarter, Richer Beef’, a diverse cohort of leading speakers from across the whole supply chain will present to participants. 
Each scholarship recipient will be provided with $1500 to assist in covering costs associate with attending the event, (for example; flights, accommodation and the event registration fee). 

The aim of this scholarship is to:
  • Increase the recipient's knowledge of the Australian Feedlotting industry and the beef industry as a whole

  • Develop the recipient's personal skills
