PAN­DEMIC COULD NOT STOP THIS MONTO TRA­DI­TION

CORO­N­AVIRUS couldn’t stop the Monto Show from pit­ting the re­gion’s huge heifers and strong steers against each other in the an­nual car­cass com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion was held at the Monto Show­grounds ear­lier this month, where up to 31 head of cat­tle were judged in seven cat­e­gories.

Car­cass com­pe­ti­tion stew­ard Gir­lie Goodie said the event had to be held with­out spec­ta­tors due to coro­n­avirus re­stric­tions.

“We met at the show­grounds, and we ended up putting the cat­tle straight onto the truck,” Ms Goodie said.

“With the re­stric­tions on we couldn’t have our pre­sen­ta­tions, but we’re plan­ning on hold­ing those later down the line.”

The Monto Show was sched­uled for May 23 this year, but was can­celled due to the pan­demic.

De­spite the re­stric­tions, Ms Goodie was still proud the car­cass com­pe­ti­tion could go on.

“It was good that we could recog­nise it in that way, rais­ing a few funds while keep­ing up in­ter­est for the show,” she said.

“The cat­tle were very good as well, and we’re very ap­pre­cia­tive for the com­peti­tors and spon­sors that came for­ward.”
