About The Zanda McDonald Award

Launched at the 2014 PPP Conference in Queenstown and born out of mateship and respect for one of agriculture's natural leaders, this Award aims to recognise diligent individuals working in the primary industry sectors in New Zealand and Australia.

Zanda McDonald was a prominent identity in the Australian beef and livestock industry and a foundation member of the PPP Group. He died in April 2013 at the age of 41, following a tragic accident on his Queensland cattle property.


 “Zanda was one of life’s true inspirations and true gentlemen. He was an astute businessman and yet equally at home driving stock or fixing machinery. A devoted father and husband, he achieved great things in a short space of time. He did this with quiet determination and a natural instinct for doing the right thing.” 

- Shane McManaway, PPP Chairman
