Cattle comp for kids
TEAM OF 12: Mundubbera State School Ag teacher Nicole Evans is taking a team of 12 students and five beasts to the Hoof and Hook competition in Bundaberg. Students are seen here with representatives of their sponsors Narayen Station and Mundubbera Rotary. John and Lynette Kerle are also sponsors but were fighting a bush fire when this photo was taken.
TWELVE Mundubbera Ag students and five head of their cattle are competing at the Hoof and Hook competition in Bundaberg which started yesterday and finishes tomorrow.
Students and their teacher Nicole Evans will be close by to check on their beasts as they are camping at the Bundaberg showground.
Three of the animals taken to the competition were donated as weaners in June, one was purchased and one bred.
The students were grateful to their sponsors Narayen Station, John and Lynette Kerle and Mundubbera Rotary for the opportunities they had given them to work with cattle.
Funds from the sale of the cattle will be used to improve facilities.
“We are aiming to be self-sufficient in the near future so we support ourselves and not rely on our generous sponsors,” Mrs Evans said. NARAYEN STATION: Mundubbera Ag students like Darien Jackson often visit Curtis Cherry at Narayen Station to learn new skills. ROTARY’S DONATION: Mundubbera Rotary member with the beast donated to the school’s ag department and student Katie Lawson.
