GAYN­DAH Show cat­tle judge David Harch came out of a 10-year hia­tus to judge a record num­ber of cat­tle at the Gayn­dah Show and was im­pressed with what he en­coun­tered.

“It’s al­ways very good out here and the qual­ity is very high,” Mr Harch said.

“The Burnett has a lot of es­tab­lished cat­tle­men which con­trib­utes to the qual­ity.”

As a gra­zier him­self Mr Harch said it sharp­ened his game when it came to both judg­ing cat­tle and work­ing the land.

“It al­ways sharp­ens you up, judg­ing keeps you sharp and that’s a good thing for you,” Mr Harch said.

“I en­joy judg­ing and I breed Brah­mans too so when­ever I am asked to judge I try and do it.”

Gayn­dah Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent and gra­zier Stu­art Kirk said this year was a great one for the cat­tle.

“We had a record num­ber this year, 150 head of cat­tle and all of them were re­ally strong,” Mr Kirk said.

As pres­i­dent Mr Kirk could still en­ter cat­tle if he chose to.

“I could if I wanted to but I have enough on and the whole fam­ily is help­ing me out so who else could have done that for me?” Mr Kirk said.

It’s hoped that next year will bring more suc­cess for Burnett gra­ziers.
