The Australian Livestock Exporters Council (ALEC) has opened nominations for the Livestock Exporter Young Achiever Award, supported by Nutrien Ag Solutions.

The Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council has opened nominations for the Livestock Exporter Young Achiever Award, supported by Nutrien Ag Solutions.

Given to a person of 35 years of age or under who is working in the livestock export industry, the award recognises a young leader who has demonstrated commitment and enthusiasm for the industry. The successful recipient will participate in the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation’s TRAIL Emerging Leaders program with flight and travel costs covered.

Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council CEO, Mark Harvey-Sutton said the award recognises the calibre of young leaders working in the industry.

“The live export industry is a really interesting sector to work in and the opportunity for a leadership pathway is really accessible. Young leaders can really have a positive impact across the whole industry,” he said.

“We invite people to nominate those young leaders within the industry who are making a great contribution and will have a positive impact on the industry in the future.”

Colby Ede, North East Region Livestock Lead, said Nutrien Ag Solutions was pleased to support the award and its recognition of the industry.

“Nutrien Ag Solutions is pleased to continue our support for this award as we help support the livestock workforce across the supply chain.

“I encourage nominations from across the industry and am looking forward to meeting the nominees who are so vital to the industry’s long-term sustainability and success,” he said.

The award will be presented at the industry’s gala dinner in Sydney in November 2023.
