The 2014 Peter Westblade Scholarship Now Open for Applications.

The Peter Westblade Scholarship Incorporated has been set up to honour the late Peter Westblade, who passed away in 2008. Peter was a true visionary of the sheep industry, epitomising compassion and devotion to a cause. Peter was passionate about breeding profitable sheep, a strong supporter of young people interested in agriculture and had a balanced approach to all things. His legacy lives strongly amongst those who had the fortune to know such a great person.
The Peter Westblade Scholarship has been developed in conjunction with the Peter Westblade Memorial Merino Challenge (PWMMC) which has been developed to assist Merino breeding operations make more informed decisions on their Merino genetics. The PWMMC has been deliberately designed to show the entrants in the Challenge and the wider sheep industry the genetic opportunities that exist for them to be more financially sustainable into the future.
