What do you need to apply?
Complete the application form and answer the essay question below. Submit proof of enrollment in post-secondary education.
Selling and marketing bulls was an important part of the Hollee Limousin operation. Brian took great pride in his marketing program and the importance of selling Limousin bulls to the commercial industry. Applicants are asked to submit an essay, 600 words maximum, that addresses the following;
How would you market a Limousin bull to a commercial bull buyer in the current beef industry?
Be sure to include a description of the attributes of the Limousin breed for the buyer and a detailed description of the marketing avenue you would use to market the bull.
In an effort to both attract new junior members to the Limousin breed and support and encourage our current junior membership the CLA has worked out an agreement with an Australian school and Limousin breeders to assist young Limousin enthusiasts in travelling to each other’s country to gain new experiences, knowledge and connections.
Each year, Australia will send young Limousin enthusiasts to Canada for the month of November to stay with host families and take in the major shows occurring during that month. In turn, Canada will send one or two CJLA members age 16-21 to Australia for their choice of either April (during the Sydney Royal Show, Sydney, New South Wales) or August (during the Ekka Royal Queensland Show, Brisbane, Queensland). A host family or multiple host families will be arranged for the juniors to stay with during their time in Australia. The successful applicant will be awarded $1,000 CAD from the CJLA to assist with travel expenses.
