Nick Petersen, from Uranquinty NSW, was in the process of completing his Marcus Oldham Industry Placement Year in 2007 at Lawsons Angus, during the worst drought in history, when he was tragically taken from his family, friends and colleagues.

He worked tirelessly and diligently during his time at Lawsons Angus. Nick was aspiring to be the top of his field; he thrived on responsibility and had a real passion for farming. Nick was always thorough, methodical and one hundred percent accountable for every facet of his workload. He took on the challenges of working for a large seedstock business, with gusto. Nick implemented the cropping and pasture renewal program and set up a cereal trial involving a range of grazing wheat and triticale.

Nick Petersen will be remembered at Lawsons Angus for his initiative and hard work. He was indeed, a great mate.

The Scholarship is supported by the Petersen Family, Lawsons Angus, Students from Nick’s Year Group, Marcus Oldham College, and Friends.
