The Zanda McDonald award was created by the Platinum Primary Producer (PPP) Group to honour Zanda McDonald, a prominent identity within the Australian beef and livestock industry, who tragically lost his life in an accident on his cattle property in 2013. The award aims to recognise rising stars within the industry and support them in their future career development.
Just last month, the 2021 Zanda McDonald Award nominations were announced with our very own, Tim Emery, taking a spot on the shortlist of finalists.
Tim is a Technical Officer in the Tropical Beef Technology Services (TBTS) team and has been recognised by the panel of judges for his talent, passion, and contribution of work within the agriculture sector.
Tim will spend time with the panel before they make their final decision, with winners announced in March 2021.
