GARTHOWEN War­rior, weigh­ing in at 744kg and shown by the Kinbacher fam­ily of Boompa, was named ju­nior cham­pion at the Rock­hamp­ton Show.

He was de­scribed by judge Brett McCam­ley as hav­ing a beau­ti­ful mus­cle pat­tern, the long­est of all the cham­pi­ons.

Ross Kinbacher said War­rior had some tough com­pe­ti­tion from the drought mas­ter bull of the Flem­ing fam­ily since win­ning the supreme cham­pion award at the Biggenden Show.

“But over­all War­rior has had a suc­cess­ful show sea­son also win­ning ju­nior cham­pion bull at Mary­bor­ough while at Gin Gin he was re­serve se­nior cham­pion bull,” he said.

“All up he has re­ceived three ju­nior cham­pi­ons, one re­serve ju­nior cham­pion, two re­serve se­nior cham­pi­ons, one grand cham­pion bull and one supreme cham­pion.

“War­rior’s last show will be at the Tiaro Field Day and then he and two other bulls will be go­ing to the an­nual Rock­hamp­ton Brah­man Week sale in Oc­to­ber.”
