Garthowen Warrior hits the jackpot
RESERVE champion ribbons at other district shows, Garthowen Warrior was named supreme champion beast of the Biggenden Show on Sunday.
Long-time supporters of the stud cattle section, the beast was exhibited by Ross and Michelle Kinbacher, of Boompa.
Judge Graham Brown, of Windera, said the bull was outstanding and had all the good attributes of the breed.
“It was a clear winner on the day,” he said.
With only 25 head to judge, Mr Brown said the number of shows in a short time span and only a couple of hours away for exhibitors in the North and South Burnett had an impact on entry numbers.
“As well as that there are economic pressures and you don’t really make a lot of money exhibiting your stock,” he said.
But what amazed Mr Brownwas the number of spectators.
“There are more people here today in Biggenden than you get at the bigger shows,” he said.
There were only two breeders groups and Midas Gelbviehs, owned by C and J Braithwaite, of Murgon, won from Bonyvilia Limousins, owned by Malcolm and Sharon Beresford, of Boompa.
CLEAR WINNER: Lucy Kinbacher in the led steer took out two classes with Lewis, pictured, and Wallace. She bought the animal from Heather Britten.
