Keeping Ag Youth keen in current climate

Recently Kilkivan State School reached out to us for info on Simmentals and youth ag events to help their Ag team still feel connected to the industry even if we can’t all get together for Shows.

Simmental Qld’s, Bec Skene, put together some trade bags with info on all things Simmental and the school sent us a photo of their students with the packs.

Hoping to see these young ag enthusiasts at the next Simmental Camp.
