Sydney Show 2010

March 27, 2010

There’s only 2 weeks until Red Angus Judging at the 2010 Sydney Show. Looking forward to catching up with Red Angus Breeders from all Australia, and indeed cattle breeders from all over the world. There are some people who are concerned by showing cattle and how it is different from commercial production – we think of it as a social event with peers and a good opportunity to compare our cattle side by side with others. We will also have Breedplan performance figures available soon for these animals.

Rain!

March 9, 2010

Hello all – well what a difference rain makes. In the past week we have had close to 6 inches of rain, which even prevented us attending Pittsworth Show! We have entered 3 head for Sydney Show in a months time and thought a little practice run at Pittsworth would be in order – never mind – we’d much rather have the rain!

Catching Up

December 22, 2009

Well – what a big couple of months. In summary:
The bulls sold well at Ag Grow Emerald, with B07 topping the Red Angus draft, selling to Charters Towers.
The World Angus Forum was huge – we met so many lovely people from all over the globe. Saw some very good bulls – especially during our travels through the USA.
We were please to host the Red Angus Society’s President Mr Earl Dakin following the Qld Red Angus Meeting last month – pity there wasn’t a blade of grass to be seen.
We have just had 32 mils of rain this week – to say its been welcome would be a dramatic understatement.

Rain and other welcome visitors

This week we were honored to have two special visitors – Mr Alex Podolinsky and Ms Francis Porter from the Bio-dynamic Research Institute. Alex is well known throughout the world as the pre eminent authority on Bio Dynamic farming and it was fabulous to have the opportunity to show he and Francis around the herd.

Have also had light showers over the last week that has seen the grass start to grow!

Well done to Stephen Hayward and Kellie Smith, Advance Charolais and K5X Angus , who won Supreme Champion Exhibit of this year’s Sydney Show with Liberty, who was shown on behalf of the late Danny Duke. Stephen and Kellie ended up with a swag of ribbons in the Charolais Section. Gav & Kiril Iseppi and Milton and Cheryl Fowler won Champion Red Angus Bull, so a good show all round for the Queenslanders. PS Kellie and Stephens’ Angus bulls are looking good for Beef 09 too.
