Angus Impress at Beef 2009

07 May 2009

AUSTRALIA - A large ringside comprising local, interstate and overseas visitors followed an intriguing battle between Queensland and New South Wales exhibitors of red and black Angus at Beef 2009, the nation’s premier beef industry event.

Champions from last month’s Sydney Royal were successful with black Angus dominating the female section and red Angus prevailing with bulls.

Judge Graham Harvey, a Brangus breeder from Dingo, Qld, chose the Fuller family’s PC Miss W38 Stockman A62 from Bylong, NSW, as senior and grand champion female to follow up her grand champion and best Angus exhibit award at Sydney.

A 1046 kg 21 months old red Angus bull, Donna-Lynn Commander C10, was junior and grand champion bull to follow up his grand championship in the red Angus classes in Sydney. He was exhibited by Gavin and Kirrily Iseppi from Dalby, Qld, and M.R. Fowler, Pittsworth, Qld.
