Devon Cattle Breeders Society of Australia - Youth Sponsorship
To encourage Junior and Student members, the DCBS of Australia decided to sponsor a young member for the 2008 World Conference and Tour and challenged other Societies to do the same. We are pleased that the UK was able to do this and welcome Richard Stanbury to the World Conference and Tour.
In Australia, applicants wrote an essay and were interviewed by Board members. 18 year old Tiffany Staples was chosen. Tiffany has been involved with Devon cattle for a number of years, developing her own stud, Ambervale, in 2004, and showing cattle for a number of different studs, not only Devons but many other breeds. She completed the HSC (Year 12) in 2007 and is now working in a veterinarian clinic in Tamworth, NSW, and studying veterinarian nursing part-time.
While on the World Conference and Tour, Tiffany is looking forward to meeting Devon breeders from all over the world and developing valuable contacts. She also hopes to increase her knowledge of the Devon breed when she visits Australian breeders on tour. At the completion of the World Conference and Tour, Tiffany will write a report for the Board on her experiences.
