THE Gayndah Show is known for many things in­clud­ing its prime cat­tle com­pe­ti­tion and sale which show­cases the best live­stock the re­gion has to of­fer.

Prime cat­tle ste­ward Vicki Palmer will again over­see the event con­sist­ing of 17 classes to be judged on hoof.

There are six classes for sin­gle fe­males in­clud­ing two grain-fed classes, seven classes for sin­gle males in­clud­ing two grain-fed classes and three classes for pens of three in­clud­ing one class of com­mer­cial re­place­ment heifers.

“Class three is to en­cour­age the cat­tle farm­ers of the fu­ture to be­come in­volved be­ing Ex­hibitors un­der 17 years,” Mrs Palmer said.

“But chil­dren are wel­come to ex­hibit in any class.”

All cat­tle are mouthed and weighed upon en­ter­ing the show grounds on Fri­day, April 14 with weigh­ing com­menc­ing at 2pm.

Judg­ing will com­mence at 9am on Satur­day, April 15 with all car­case tro­phies be­ing pre­sented at the Golden Or­ange Ho­tel on Wed­nes­day, April 19.

Bile­ola res­i­dent Mat Pavey will be the 2017 judge.

“All win­ners of classes are el­i­gi­ble for one or more of the 10 cham­pi­onships,” Mrs Palmer said.

“Ev­ery class and cham­pi­onship is fully spon­sored and we would like to thank all of the spon­sors of the prime cat­tle sec­tion.”

Last year had 140 head of cat­tle ex­hib­ited.
