    QLD Charolais Youth Conference – In 2012, the QLD Charolais Region held a Youth Conference which was held from the 4th to the 7th of July at the Warwick Showgrounds, QLD. The Conference went exceptionally well with approximately 50 youth attending. The attendees had the chance to participate in hands on practical learning as well as interactive lectures covering everything from cattle handling and care, to nutrition and reproduction. The program also included a young judges competition, prime cattle judging competition, Champion Herdsperson award, and the Heifer Show Spectacular which gave the attendees the chance to show off their newly acquired skills.

    The success of the conference is due to the dedication and hard work of the organisers, Kelly Skillington and Paula Warren. Thanks also to the many other adults whose contribution was intrumental in making the event such a triumph. Lastly, thank you to the many sponsors of the 2012 Conference, including Major Sponsors Pioneer, Bayer and Moongool Charolais.
