NAB Agribusiness Rising Champions Initiative

The NAB Agribusiness Rising Champion Initiative commenced in 2010 and is now entering the 6th year of the Initiative. 2016 is set to find some of the best young leaders in the country. We aim to inspire, web empower and support young people, who are passionate about the Australian beef industry and to provide them with an opportunity to be directly involved. It makes sense that the cattle producers and stakeholders of tomorrow are involved in the planning that occurs today. That’s why Cattle Council is offering young people passionate about the Australian beef industry the opportunity to have a say and be heard by the decision makers.
