Garthowen War­rior hits the jackpot

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

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.
