Simon’s top showing
Teen named as champion all rounder
AN EXCITED and happy Simon Kinbacher of Boompa was named champion all rounder in the inter-school competition at the Rockhampton Show at the weekend.
Competing against 90 children in the five elements of the competition, the Riverside Christian College Year 10 student took out first in junior paraders and interbreed junior heifer.
He was placed second in stud cattle judging as well as second in the junior lightweight led steer with his sister Lucy’s british white steer.
In the prime cattle judging he was placed fifth.
After success at other district and regional shows, Simon said he was confident in his results to do well.
“I thought I did pretty good,” he said.
For his efforts he won clothing and feed vouchers.
He returns to Rockhampton in two weeks’ time for the junior beef show.
“This will be similar to last weekend’s event with parader and judging classes,” he said.
Simon will be taking his led steer and led heifer along with him.
“Hopefully I will be able to do as well as last weekend,” Simon said.
