Red Angus bursary

For this 2011-2012 season, four bursaries of $500 will be available to Canadian 4-H and/or Junior Angus members to assist in off-setting the purchase price of a Red Angus or Red-influence project animal.

To qualify, the 4-H/Junior member must comply with the following:

  • For 4-H, steer and heifer calf projects with ?50% Red Angus breeding are eligible. For Juniors, purebred bull, heifer, and cow/calf projects are eligible.
  • Provide proof of purchase and a photo of animal(s) with or without 4-H/Junior member.
  • Have photo validated (written confirmation) by 4-H/Junior leader, or producer of the animal, as to breed.
  • Provide concise answers to three questions of approximately 50-75 words stating why they wish to purchase a Red Angus influence project animal and what they intend to do in the future development of this animal

Questions:

  • How did you come to the decision to use Red Angus genetics in your 4H/Junior project?
  • What challenges do you feel you will encounter in the duration of this project?
  • How do you plan to maximize the advantages of Red Angus genetics in your project?

Application packages should be sent directly to the Promotion Society, via email or snail mail. Be sure to include your proof of purchase (copy of receipt or bill of sale); your validated photo; and your answers to the three questions.

This bursary can be applied to existing projects that are underway right now, ie. fall 2011-purchased animals.

We welcome the input of 4-H/Junior members and club leaders on the future development of this program. Our plans will include more money in future years and incentives to develop longer term projects. We would also like to talk to individuals with these projects about inclusion in the Red Roundup sale, either as exhibitors, presenters, or consignors.
