Narromine’s Lauren Moody has recently been named as a 2017 NSW Limousin Youth Ambassador.
The announcement was made at the the National Limousin Youth Show earlier this month at Parkes
Patrick Rankmore from Gunnedah was also named as a 2017 NSW Limousin Youth Ambassador.
When the Western Magazine spoke to Lauren last Wednesday she said she felt “humbled” to be chosen.
“It was quite an exciting feeling… for them (the judges) to select me out of the other applicants,” she said.
As a 2017 NSW Limousin Youth Ambassador, Lauren’s goal is to keep the breed going and connect more with the youth within the industry.
Lauren was first introduced to the Limousin Breed in 2012 through exhibiting steers with St Johns College Dubbo and Mr Ben Toll.
Lauren quickly recognised the potential for the Limousin breed throughout the commercial beef industry and was keen to learn more.
