A student from Northumberland has been named as the 2016 winner of the Wynnstay Beef Award.
Rosie McGowan, who graduated with a 1st class BSc Agriculture with Animal Science degree from Harper Adams University, scooped the £100 prize for her research project ‘Evaluation of feeding elevated levels of milk replacer on the health of artificially reared beef calves to 12 weeks.’
The Wynnstay Beef Award is made annually to a final year Bachelor of Sciences or Foundation Sciences degree student at the Shropshire university who produces the best beef Honours Research Project or Professional Research Project.
The winner has to demonstrate outstanding innovation within the beef sector, through both case studies and practical research.
The results of the study will be presented as a conference paper at the British Society of Animal Science annual meeting in April next year.
Rosie, who comes from a Northumberland farming family which runs a herd of Dexter cattle to supply their farm shop, beef boxes and a local pub, is now travelling in America to learn more about global agriculture production and working on red meat farms before returning to the UK.
Wynnstay Group area business manager, Steve Jarrett, said: “Rosie was a deserving winner for a thorough and innovative research project, which was reflected in the 1st class degree that she secured.
“This award recognises the next generation of innovators and specialists in the beef sector and Rosie has got her career off to a flying start by winning the Beef Award.”
Wynnstay has a proud history of supporting the university and the future agricultural specialists. As well as the Beef Award, it backs a range of trials and studies at the Edgmond site.
The specialist agricultural and retail supplier has headquarters in Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Llansantffraid, as well as a wider retail operation of 53 country and pet products stores around the UK.
