HAV­ING to work on Satur­day paid div­i­dends for Craig Tay­lor at the Biggen­den Show.

The MK Cat­tle Li­mousin Stud owner from Mur­gon would nor­mally go to Black­butt but had to work so de­cided to come to the Biggen­den Show and ex­hibit his cat­tle for the first time.

His six-month-old bull called Max­i­mum En­ergy was named cham­pion bull and then supreme cham­pion ex­hibit of the show.

Mr Tay­lor said he was glad he came.

“I didn’t ex­pect this,” he said.

“We knew he had po­ten­tial but still a lit­tle bit sur­prised with the win.

“This is only his sec­ond show, next stop is the Ekka.”

Judge Brent Evans of Jenda View Li­mousins at Kingaroy de­scribed Max­i­mum En­ergy as truly phe­nom­e­nal.

“He has his I’s dot­ted and T’s crossed,” he said.

Cham­pion fe­male was Midas Tanya owned by Chris Braith­waite from the Mi­dasGlebi­eth Stud, also from Mur­gon.

Han­dler Amanda We­ber said the two studs were just over the hill from each other.

“We are very ex­cited with the win,” she said.

“Next port of call is also the Ekka.”

Five studs cov­er­ing Gel­b­vieh, Blonde D’Aquataine, Li­mousin and Brah­man made an im­pres­sive line-up in the arena for the breed­ers group.

The class was won by Be­van Glas­gow’s Ruina Red Brah­man stud from Chris Braith­waite’s Midas Gel­b­viehs and Aisthorpe Fam­ily’s Monal Grac­ing Co Meri­dan Blondes.

Mr Evans said the breed­ers group was one of his favourite classes.

“It shows where the breed­ers are go­ing with their cat­tle,” he said.

“The clear win­ners here today are the Red Brah­mans.”

An ex­tra class in the led steers was made to ac­com­mo­date all the school chil­dren.

Ste­ward Robin Rober­ton said the prize money had been do­nated by the spon­sors to give stu­dents an in­cen­tive to ex­hibit.

Ju­nior pa­raders and judges from Monto, Isis Dis­trict High, River­side Chris­tian Col­lege and Biggen­den par­tic­i­pated in var­i­ous age groups.
