YLEN, in partnership with our major sponsor Tropical Taurus, is thrilled to offer 6 YLEN members the chance to receive a $500 bursary to attend a Low Stress Livestock Handling course of their choice! LSLH techniques are invaluable to safe livestock movement, not just for the livestock but also for the handler, and have been shown to improve animal welfare and production outcomes.

We would like to thank our sponsor Tropical Taurus for giving members this fantastic opportunity. Tropical Taurus is an Australian stud enterprise operating throughout Queensland by Cultivate Agri Partnerships. As specialist breeders of tropically adapted bulls, their cattle are developed to perform in harsh north Australian conditions. For more information click here.
