Tom Nixon HEADING TO NZ FOR YOUTH EXCHANGE
Commercial and stud Hereford operator Tom Nixon from Queensland has been chosen as the recipient of the Herefords Australia New Zealand Youth Exchange.
The 29-year-old Stud principal of Devon Court Herefords and current President of Queensland Hereford Regional Group will head to NZ this month and get a taste of the international Hereford market.
Mr Nixon has been breeding Herefords and running the family farm since the age of 17 after completing Year 10 at Scots College Warwick and a Certificate 3 in Animal Husbandry at Longreach Pastoral College, Queensland.
Herefords Youth Committee Chairman Scott Hann said Mr Nixon will be an excellent representative of the Australian Hereford industry.
“I am certain Mr Nixon will be able to use this experience as a positive insight not only for his personal knowledge but also for the benefit of the Australia Hereford industry,” Mr Hann said. “The involvement of Youth such as Mr Nixon is vital for the future of our industry and I believe we will continue to reap the benefits for years to come,” he said.
Mr Nixon said having bred Herefords all his life, he could not think of doing anything more personally and professionally satisfying.
“With a deep passion for Herefords I look forward to further growing my skills and knowledge while in NZ so that I can hand back this experience to prospective youth looking to get into the Hereford industry,” Mr Nixon said.
“I am certainly keen to learn more about the international market and this will be a prime opportunity that I am sure will be life changing, personally and professionally,” he said.
The program will run from Monday April 22 till Sunday May 5 2013, with Mr Nixon starting his tour in South Canterbury visiting Hereford producers. He will also have the opportunity to join the NZ Hereford Association Ambassadors tour of Waikato including attendance at the Better Beef Cow workshop, Carne Technologies, and Stud visits. please don’t hesitate to contact him.
Tom Nixon elected President of Queensland Hereford State Group
In November 2012, Tom was elected president of the Herefords Queensland Association. Through this role he intends on being proactive in the progression of the group and the breed. The role will also provide an opportunity to ‘learn the ropes’ in preparation for his aspiration to one day sit on the national board of Herefords Australia.
If you have any queries or suggestions for Tom in relation to the state group (including meetings) or the Hereford breed, please don’t hesitate to contact him.
