ITWAS not just the big cattle producers of the North Burnett who headed to BeefWeek.
Ten Monto High School students put on their boots for the Rockhampton beef extravaganza to show the industry what they knew about cattle.
The students, all members of the school’s cattle club, spend their spare time learning more about agriculture.
But you would be mistaken for thinking they all grew up on cattle properties and are just following in their parents’ footsteps.
But since joining she has become more involved and is considering a future in the industry.
“I would like to (work in the industry),” Maddi said.
“I don’t think I would be thinking of that if I hadn’t have joined the cattle club.”
Students in the club competed in cattle judging, paraded their beasts and competed against other agricultural students from schools across Queensland.
And they had a few wins, with students Maddi Low and Brock Dahtler coming third and fifth in their rounds for commercial cattle judging.
Maddi Low I would like to (work in the industry). I don’t think I would be thinking of that if I hadn’t have joined the cattle club.
BIG WIN: Monto High students Brock Dahtler and Maddi Low impressed with their skills at Rockhampton's Beef Week.
