Great future tipped as breed steals show
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.
