Returned home after a not-to-be topped week in Brisbane!
Results as follows:
Elite Hope- Junior Champion Heifer. Very proud of this young female.... Going one better than her mother, Monument Valley Hope, who won Reserve Junior in 2013 at Brisbane.... Unfortunately we lost her mother at two weeks after calving..... A lot of love has gone into getting this little poddy to the champion she now is!
Crathes Estella 32- Senior & Grand Champion Female; capping off a great year for this young, first calving female by claiming the trifecta; Sydney, Beef & Brisbane 2015.
Elite Kingswood- Reserve Junior Champion Bull
Elite Jackpot- Reserve Senior Champion Bull.
Winner of the breeder's group & also most successful exhibitor!
In the steer section; our led steer 'Willy' was the highest placed purebreed Charolais steer on the hoof & member of the Ken McDonald Shield team.
'Stanley', our prime steer, was sashed Reserve Champion and sold for $6.70 (returned at $4,623) to Eatons Hill Hotel.
While this finishes a great year for Elite Charolais in the show-ring, I guess we start working on next year's recruits.....! Stay tuned!
