Youth Development Programme

World Angus Forum

  • The UK and Ireland team for the Youth Competition at this Summer’s World Angus Forum got together for a team training session at Melview Farming in Dymock, Gloucestershire in preparation for the competition. All team members are really excited for the Forum, and we’re sure they’ll do a magnificent job and show off their skills in front of the big audience when the time comes around! A big thank you is extended to Paul and Kirsty Westaway for hosting the event at Gamage Hall and to Keith Jempson for his assistance also, which was greatly appreciated by all the team.
  • We heard about the great social events that’ll be ongoing throughout the duration of the World Angus Forum. You can read all about them here, make sure to get your place booked to avoid disappointment: http://www.aberdeen-angus.co.uk/news/world-angus-forum-2017-a-social-programme-packed-with-magnificent-events/

Good news from the office

  • Due to the recent expansion and increase in work activities undergone at our office in Perth, particularly with the Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society officially moving its registration and administration processes to Pedigree Cattle Services headqurters. Laura and Barbara have started the process to fill the position of Office Junior. The need for an office Junior is testament to the good work that’s been happening in Pedigree Cattle Services, and we’re delighted to be in the position to be able to add to our already brilliant workforce.

On a lighter note…

Hello 2


Thanks to recently shedding a few pounds, we couldn’t help but notice our very own Tom Arnott’s constant need to pull his trousers up to avoid them falling to his ankles at the Stirling Sale and Show on Monday. Thank goodness for the Farmer’s Friend, a piece a pink bale string making a great make-shift belt and saving Tom the embarrassment of the show being all about him!
