Great fu­ture tipped as breed steals show

Tasmanian Country - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THE cat­tle ring at the Royal Syd­ney Sho turned red and white as more than 300 Here­fords were ex­hib­ited as the show’s fea­ture breed this year.

US-based judge PJ Budler chose War­ra­gundi Min­nesota as his supreme Here­ford ex­hibit and the 1078kg bull went on to be crowned supreme in­ter­breed ex­hibit of the show.

It was bred and ex­hib­ited by the Kel­ley fam­ily in NSW.

South African turned Texan cat­tle judge PJ Budler is the founder of the in­ter­na­tional on­line Cham­pion of the World cat­tle com­pe­ti­tions, which now en­com­passes 14 breeds.

Mr Budler, who judged the Here­ford fea­ture and was one of the in­ter­breed judges, said the Aus­tralian Here­ford cat­tle he saw could have a big im­pact on the breed world­wide. He said War­ra­gundi’s supreme bull could make a dif­fer­ence in coun­tries all across the world.

Grand cham­pion Here­ford fe­male Kan­im­bla May M070 also had in­ter­breed suc­cess, win­ning supreme in­ter­breed heifer.
