Kids steering in right direction
A MOUNT Fox family has proved the grass is greener on their side of the fence, after taking home several awards for their steers at the Ingham Show.
Penny and Loch Thomson and their four children Will, Holly, Meg and Grace were awarded eight accolades for their 14 steers within the Prime Beef Section.
Ms Thomson says everyone in the family pitches in to help out on their cattle property, Kallanda, in Mount Fox.
“We received five first places out of the eight which is really great, and the kids are really happy,” Ms Thomson said.
“We breed and sell cattle for a living but we enjoy entering some of our steers into the show.”
Ms Thomson said it had been a huge help being able to keep the cattle close by at Mungulla Station. The four children, who attend Mount Fox State School, said they were very excited to have won, and to be at the show.
“We get to help muster and fence at home with mum and dad,” they said.
Although Ms Thomson said the children couldn’t spend the award money on showbags, they were allowed to have fun on the rides.
“We really want to go on the rides,” they said.
