An­other crack­ing Ju­nior Cat­tle Camp at Too­goolawah

Gatton Star - - LIFE -

THE LAST week­end of the Septem­ber hol­i­days saw 60 eager par­tic­i­pants con­verge on the Too­goolawah Show­grounds for the sec­ond An­nual Too­goolawah Ju­nior Cat­tle Camp.

There was a great mix of kids across all age groups with 21 Ju­niors (8 – 12 years), 25 In­ter­me­di­ates (13 – 15 years) and 14 Se­niors (16 – 25 years).

Fri­day started off with the ‘meet and greet’ fol­lowed by great in­for­ma­tion talks, prac­ti­cal instructions and demon­stra­tions and Barn­yard Olympics.

Satur­day morn­ing saw more parad­ing prac­tice and a great talk fol­lowed by the Stud and Prime Cat­tle judg­ing.

On Satur­day night about 200 peo­ple went into the auc­tion at the Char­ity Din­ner and Auc­tion.

The Char­ity Auc­tion was very suc­cess­ful with over $9800 be­ing raised on the night.

For the first time, there was an Auc­tion­eers com­pe­ti­tion which was spon­sored by Shep­herd­son and Boyd and was judged by Mr Vince O’brien. The com­pe­ti­tion saw 19 keen par­tic­i­pants pro­vide plenty of en­ter­tain­ment for the au­di­ence. Hunter Haynes took out the com­pe­ti­tion with Clay Law­son re­ceiv­ing the Highly Com­mended prize and Peter Cole­man tak­ing out the En­cour­age­ment award.

The Pa­raders com­pe­ti­tion was on Sun­day morn­ing with Mr Brent Evans of Jen-daview Li­mousins, Kin­garoy judg­ing the event. All of the par­tic­i­pants did a fan­tas­tic job and com­peted very well. The fi­nal for the Grand Cham­pion pa­rader came down to the Ju­nior Cham­pion – Hunter Haynes, the In­ter­me­di­ate Cham­pion – Kiara Hughes and the Se­nior Cham­pion – Katherine Rose with the Cham­pion prize go­ing to the Ju­nior Pa­rader – Hunter Haynes. When an­nounc­ing the grand cham­pi­ons Mr Evans said he liked the way Hunter led the young bull with so much ease.

“He is so con­fi­dent in him­self and it flows straight through to the bull,” he said. Re­sults for the Ju­nior Camp:
