It did allow us the luxury today of heading down the road to another small country show where a few of our cattle were being shown by Sarah's school.
We are so pleased to be associated with this school, these youngsters handling themselves and the cattle very professionally.
Our Tilly, once a milker's calf,
did us proud, receiving the Junior Champion Heifer ribbon.
Jessie lined up again for another run in the Junior Parader's class,
bringing home a fifth place ribbon.
She and Sarah now excitedly talking about attending the Junior Beef Show conducted in Rockhampton in the June school holidays.
One more week, and we head down to Beef Week, an amazing celebration of all that our industry has to offer. Thousands of cattle representing every breed and every facet of the beef industry will be on show. Commercial cattle, carcase cattle and led stud cattle, the best of the best, a magnificent exhibition and representation of what beef producers Australia-wide are producing. And the bottom line of all of this ... steaks on plates. People feeding people. We can't wait.
