Sheep Industry Ambassador Award
Application close: 11 Feb 2019, 9am
SPA is offering winners of the Sheep Industry Ambassador Award the opportunity to attend theNew Zealand Sheep Industry Ambassador Program in March 2019. The program will foster and grow the up and coming leaders in the sheep industry.
The award includes a week-long study tour from 25-30 March, with visits showcasing the industry supply chain across the North and South Islands with ambassadors of the New Zealand and United States sheep industries.
This program will create a forum of young producers and industry leaders from the United States, Australia and New Zealand to share ideas, network and to broaden the understanding of sheep farming practices and importance of trade in agriculture in all three countries.
Beyond the trip, a range of other opportunities and professional development are also included as part of the award. Successful applicants will have the chance to represent sheep producers and their interests at a national level by contributing to industry initiatives with the SPA Board or Committees. This input will influence the strategy, policy development, advocacy or industry leadership to guide the industry’s future.
Sheep Producers Australia and Meat & Livestock Australia are proud to offer this opportunity to build leadership capability for the sheep industry.
