Simmental NSW Youth Project Committee weekend

We wish to invite you to attend an informal, educational weekend where our passionate youth can meet and form a NSW Youth Committee. Our intention is to form strong relationships with likeminded Simmental youth and senior members during a relaxed but informative weekend where decisions can be made and a committee formed, moving on to cement a progressive NSW Simmental Youth Program.
A Date and Location have been locked in and program planned. This weekend is open to all Simmental members, so please come enjoy the countryside, new company, learn something, and support our youth. Our youth committee is open to all under 25 years with a minimal cost of $11.00 Membership.
