Queensland youths threw their hats off for the conclusion of the 2023 Brangus Youth Camp on Tuesday 12 December.

The four-day program started on Saturday 9 December at the Theodore Showgrounds, and enabled youths from the ages of five to 25 to participate in numerous beef competitions including lead steers, judging and more.

President Brad Hanson said he and his team are thankful for all the sponsorships and support they received for this year’s camp.

“This year there were 96 youth participants at the camp,” Mr Hanson said.

“Thankyou to all of the sponsors and people who came to the event, we are looking forward to our next camp in 2024.”

Established in 2002, the program focuses on teaching and granting the youth the opportunity to dive into learning about animal care, maintenance, nutrition, handling of large animals, sustainable land management, soil health, public speaking, teamwork and much more.
