Tem­per­a­ment a win­ner

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

FIRST timer Neven Din­gle – with his one and only prime cat­tle ex­hibit – took out the grand cham­pion beast of the Biggenden Show.

Now re­tired to Her­vey Bay, Mr Din­gle keeps a few head on his daugh­ter’s Brooweena prop­erty to main­tain his life­long in­ter­est in cat­tle.

Judg­ing for the first time was Ken Schultz from Hil­lview Brah­man Stud at Mt Lar­com thor­oughly en­joyed his day.

Mr Schultz said the qual­ity at the show was a “bloody good mob of cat­tle.”

He said the grand cham­pion beast had a tem­per­a­ment that made him stand out in a line of good bul­locks.

“Many of us are still un­der­tak­ing re­pairs af­ter the floods but gra­ziers have found the time to pro­duce th­ese qual­ity cat­tle,” he said.

“They would hold their own at any show es­pe­cially the cows.”

Chief stew­ard Ash­ley Trig­ger thanked the ven­dors who had ex­hib­ited 123 head and paid trib­ute to the work­ers be­hind the scenes.

“It is good to have this ex­pe­ri­ence,” he said.

“Our thanks also to Lance and Stephanie Whitaker for the use of their yards. They are sec­ond to none and we couldn’t hold this event with­out them.”

Cat­tle went di­rectly to the meat­works at Teys Bros Beenleigh and Biggenden Meat­works.
