Nine of the beef industry’s best and brightest young minds were announced as successful candidates recently at the Roma Young Beef Producers Forum.

“The quality of the 49 applications received was outstanding across the board, and so tough was the task of separating candidates for the eight spots on offer, that we have provided an additional ninth position to cater for another worthy recipient,” Beef Australia Chairman Blair Angus said.

The successful candidates are all aged between 25 and 35 and will now have access to mentoring from experienced beef industry leaders, as well as formal personal development training.

Beef Connections is a new initiative of the Beef Australia 2015 Next Generation committee and is being supported by Westpac Agribusiness to assist in the acquisition and retention of talented young people in the beef industry.

The Beef Connections program was named in honour of the late Graeme Acton, who was renowned for supporting young people in entering the sector and generously sharing with them his extensive knowledge.

“A core goal of Beef Australia is to act as a platform to build the capacity of the national beef industry, so it is particularly pleasing that the successful applicants are from all parts of the country and currently have roles at various points along the length of the beef supply chain,” Mr Angus said.

Successful candidates include Adam Coffey, producer, NT, Amanda Moohen, producer, Qld, Ashley Kirk, producer, Qld, Blythe Calnan, live export industry, WA, Donald Hook, ag education, WA, Joanna Robertson, DAFF employee, Qld, Kenrick Cross, producer, NSW, Rachel Hoolihan, agribusiness, Qld and Sarah Rutledge, marketing, Qld

The successful candidates will be paired with a mentor who has proven leadership skills in agricultural industry and will support participants to achieve their personal development aspirations.

Mentors will be selected during December and introduced to the participants in January 2015, ahead of the Building Your Future Conference to be held in Brisbane in February 2015.
