School ex­cels at Too­goolawah

Dalby Herald - - LIFE RURAL -

ONCE again, the Dalby State High School cat­tle team have shown they have what it takes to be win­ners.

This time it was the Too­goolawah Show cat­tle ring where the team made their mark.

Se­nior stu­dent sup­port worker Sue Bur­rowes ac­com­pa­nied the team to Too­goolawah on Fri­day, June 7.

“Our cat­tle placed first in all of their classes with fol­low-ups of sec­onds and thirds in some,”

Mrs Bur­rowes said.

The team put a fi­nal feather in their caps with their cat­tle earn­ing the team Cham­pion School Led Steer or Heifer and Re­serve Cham­pion School Led Steer or Heifer.

Stu­dents from the cat­tle club were also suc­cess­ful in the Too­goolawah Show’s young judge sec­tions.

“We had Char­lie Sal­ter who won the 15-20-year prime judg­ing age group and also over­all cham­pion judge and he sec­onded stud judg­ing,” Mrs Bur­rowes said.

“Matilda Sal­ter won the over­all ju­nior cham­pion and she also got first in her age group and sec­ond in prime judg­ing.

“She went well in pa­rades as well.”

Mrs Bur­rowes spoke highly of the stu­dents’ ef­forts.

“It was a great ef­fort. They’ve been work­ing re­ally hard, so hard work pays off at the end of the day.”

Too­goolawah Show So­ci­ety vice-pres­i­dent Paris Granzien said nu­mer­ous schools at­tended the young judge events again this year and there were “lots of goodqual­ity cat­tle ex­hib­ited”.

“I al­ways love the prime young judges be­cause you ac­tu­ally get to see some of the qual­ity on show with the kids and it’s amaz­ing how well some of them speak,” she said.

They’ve been work­ing re­ally hard, so hard work pays off at the end of the day.
