What is the Stock Scheme?
The Stock Scheme is an initiative of the St Margaret’s College Foundation. Revenue is generated from the purchase and sale of calves.
The profits go into the St Margaret’s College Foundation and are directed towards boarding scholarships to help rural families who would otherwise not be able to send their daughters to the school.
How does it work?
The Foundation purchases weaned calves.
You provide grazing for a weaned calf (or calves) until they are ready for sale.
The overall profits from the sale of the calves are tagged to boarding scholarships.
The buying, selling and transport of the animals is organised by the St Margaret’s College Stock Scheme team for you.
You can also donate the proceeds from the sale of your own calf/calves to the Stock Scheme. (Your gift is tax deductible.)
When does it happen?
The animals are purchased in April/ May each year.
You can choose to host the calf/calves for a period of 6 or 12 months.
Who pays for what?
The Foundation: Pays for the calves and the transport costs to and from your farm to the sale yards.
Your costs: Grazing and animal health.
