Volunteer work and employment opportunities arise for participants with several past participants been employed by stock firms, stud breeders and a rural newspaper firm, whilst others volunteer their services as cattle stewards or handlers. Western Australian’s first female livestock auctioneer was a participant at the camp and has returned to be a camp leader several times. Numerous participants have gone on to win judging and handling competitions at major shows and events. Past participants have even gone on to be judges and associate judges at country shows around Western Australia and at Perth Royal Show.
