Neogen joining the World Angus Forum as naming rights sponsor


The anticipation has well and truly set in for the 2025 World Angus Forum, and on board to bring the event to life is naming rights sponsor Neogen, who will partner with Angus Australia in gathering Angus enthusiasts from around the world in Australia.  

The Neogen World Angus Forum is heading to Brisbane, Australia on the 7th – 8th May 2025.  Cattle breeders, Angus enthusiasts, and beef industry professionals from every corner of the globe are invited to converge in Australia for this extraordinary event.   

With a theme of ‘Beef for a Better Planet’, the Neogen World Angus Forum will be a global celebration of Angus and an insight into the latest technology, genetics, and innovation.   

The event will showcase the highest quality beef run sustainably in some of the harshest environments and explore the concepts and challenges of the Australian Beef Industry’s quest for Carbon Neutral 2030.   

“I’m delighted to announce a partnership with Neogen for the World Angus Forum and am very excited to have Neogen on board as our naming rights sponsor,” said Angus Australia CEO Scott Wright.    

“We’ve less than 12 months to go until the World Angus Forum and will be hosting the event for the first time in 25 years.”   

He continued, “Neogen are a great collaborator with Angus Australia. We do lots of work together, and this is another opportunity to push the industry forward.    

“We’re very thankful for the sponsorship as it means that we can put on a great event. We’re expecting over a thousand delegates from 26 Angus producing countries. Neogen have a worldwide reach, so the international team will be involved, and it is a great opportunity to showcase Angus genetics worldwide.”   

Neogen operates Australia’s largest livestock genomics laboratory, providing a range of customised genomic solutions for Angus breeders including AngusGS and HeiferSelect. With a network of labs around the globe, Neogen has been long term supporters of Angus breeders both in Australia and around the world.  

“Neogen is a big supporter of Angus Australia and the Angus breed globally,” said Neogen Genomics Sales Manager Hannah Bourke.    

“For us, this collaboration and partnership with Angus Australia for the World Angus Forum just made perfect sense for both their organisation and our organisation.   

“We’re really looking forward to what the next 12 months have to bring, and then the actual event itself.”  

An exciting program is being developed for the Neogen World Angus Forum spanning two weeks, including an initial reception on the Harbour in Sydney, followed by a pre-forum tour with farm visits and tourist destinations on the itinerary.   

The tour will see delegates land in Tamworth for what is anticipated to be the largest gathering of Angus cattle in Australia, as we host a two-day Angus Expo at the Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre (AELEC). Returning for 2025 will also be the highly anticipated World Angus Forum Youth Competition.   

From Tamworth the tour will continue north and finish up in Brisbane for the official World Angus Forum event, where speakers who are experts in their field will be invited to present at the Brisbane Entertainment and Convention Centre.
