Prime cattle winners at Mt Perry
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.
