Reach for the Future

The business of agriculture is dynamic and rich in diversity. Agriculture is where it happens – producing food, feed and energy. Whether at the primary position or related business sectors, agriculture is a very high tech industry that requires people with diverse skills and talents. Agriculture has become very knowledge based and technology changes quickly. It is for this reason, we believe attracting young people to agriculture is extremely important and why we are so pleased to combine two of our passions into the Blairs.Ag Junior Scholarship program: Angus cattle and youth development.

Looking Forward to the Future

We are very proud to launch the Blairs.Ag Junior Scholarship program. This program will give juniors across Canada the opportunity to receive scholarships for their post-secondary education. By purchasing females from Blairs.Ag Cattle Company and participating in regional, provincial and national livestock shows, juniors may quality for scholarships to help further their educational dreams.

Education is freedom – freedom to choose your path in life and realize whatever dreams and goals you may have, today and in the future. We believe in agriculture and want to do everything possible to ensure there are skilled young people involved in this industry. If your career path means you continue in agriculture or business, that’s great. If it takes you in other directions, we are pleased to participate in supporting whatever post secondary education you choose to pursue. We love the cattle business and believe the people in the livestock industry are some of the best mentors available for juniors today. Our entire team is excited about facilitating the ability for youth to participate in the livestock industry while investing in your future education.

The first step is to purchase a scholarship eligible female from Blairs.Ag Cattle Company by private treaty or auction. An eligible female is defined as a heifer that carries the Blairs.Ag Cattle Company herd prefix of “BBC”. Scholarship eligible females will be identified as such when sold. All females eligible for the scholarship program must be purchased, registered and shown in the junior’s name throughout the heifer’s show career. Any transfer to a third party will void the eligibility for the scholarship program unless the transfer is approved in writing by Blairs.Ag Cattle Company.

The second step is to take this heifer home, develop her and take her to cattle shows, which can be regional, provincial or national in scope. Please refer to the schedule above to see eligible shows and qualifying scholarship levels.
