AF­TER 30 years of ded­i­cated ser­vice, Girlie Goody is show­ing no sign of slow­ing down with the Cal­lide Daw­son Beef Car­case Com­pe­ti­tion.

Elma, bet­ter known as “Girlie” was there from the start when it was a fledg­ling judg­ing com­pe­ti­tion and has seen it grow into a pop­u­lar event.

Her past 25 years was spent as trea­surer and she has now stepped back from the role but will still play an ac­tive part.

“I have been a par­tic­i­pant in all 30 com­pe­ti­tion years and trea­surer since 1993 but I have now re­tired from it,” Ms Goody said.

“I’m a bit of car­case com­pe­ti­tion junkie and it’s some­thing I got into be­cause of my fa­ther Hec­tor Goody.”

The sprightly 79-year-old may have slowed down a bit but still isn’t ready to put her feet up yet.

“There are some breeds of bull I want to see and more com­pe­ti­tions to go into,” she said.

Ms Goody won the award in the HGP-free Coles Su­per­mar­ket pen of three pas­ture or grain fed steers and/or heifers com­pe­ti­tion at the Bris­bane Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The 2018 Cal­lide Daw­son Beef car­case com­pe­ti­tion grand cham­pion prize was won by Ms Goody out of 596 com­peti­tors.

“The com­pe­ti­tions are great fun and you meet good peo­ple at them,” she said.

“Nom­i­na­tions are open in Jan­uary to for the grain feed sec­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion,” she said.
