Prime cat­tle win­ners at Mt Perry

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

BRIAN Smith was proud of his fam­ily’s prime cat­tle wins at this year’s Mt Perry Show.

The fam­ily scooped up prizes for Cham­pion Fe­male, Re­serve Cham­pion Fe­male and Cham­pion Pen, while their Cham­pion Male Mango Boy took out Cham­pion of Show.

“We’re back at Hivesville, near Pros­ton, and we’ve got a small feed­lot,” Mr Smith said.

“Some cat­tle are fed on grains and there are some grass-fed ones.

“We do quite a few shows, lo­cal shows.

“We had cham­pion grass-fed at Goomeri (Show) and we got cham­pion grain-fed at Pros­ton.”

Mr Smith said the weather and cat­tle prices had im­proved since Christ­mas time, and he pre­dicted the mar­ket would keep strong for the rest of the year.
