School excels at Toogoolawah
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.
