Winning Heavyweight Carcase-Class 9 RNA 2012

We thought our 2012 Charity Steer was good and yesterday we proved it!  Winning the heavyweight steer class, the 620kg live steer was 15months old and purebred Red Angus – straight from our breeding program.  Sired by Blue Hill Challenge and out of a first calf heifer by A15,  “Gizmo” was prepared by Downlands College, Toowoomba, with all proceeds to go to the MS Society and Downlands.  We are still waiting to see if we also win the taste test to get a final prize money count for Charity.

By the way, also won reserve junior champion heifer, 1 1st and 2 3rds in the registered section with our 3 head.

Kelynack's Champions at Ekka 2011

Kelynack exhibited Junior and Reserve Junior Champion Red Angus bulls at the Brisbane Royal Show 2011 – otherwise known as the “Ekka”.

Photographed are Marg, Ben and BJ with Fernando, Franklin and Fleur competing in the breeders group.  Well done to Kellie and Stephen for exhibiting the Grand Champion Red Angus Female – Waterfront Design, who went on to narrowly miss being Interbreed Champion Female of the Show by 3 lousy points to Keith and Roz Glasson’s Charolais Cow.  Never mind – Reserve Interbreed is a big effort.  Well Done to Graig and Renee Gapes on Champion Red Angus bull – The 2 Grand Champions went on to be 2nd overall in the Interbreed Pair!!!!

U105 with twin bull calves

These last few months have been a lession in appreciating life – after the passing of close family friend, (and Agricultural Politics Legend) Ivy Inwood, numerous trips to hospital etc, we witnessed heavy flooding, starting with 27th December 2010 with over 6 inches of rain! The water level in the creek rose to over 2 metres above the road, and swept fencing away. Monday 10th January 2011 saw the Toowoomba region suffer the most tragic damage to people, property and livestock with walls of water sweeping away all in its paths. The most sereal experiences in human kindness, panic and sadness. This then continued with our friends in FNQ, with Cyclone Yasi. We continue to wish all those affected, strength in the recovery process. And to top it all off, outbreaks of sickness associated with floodwaters – trying to stave off whopping cough as we speak.


Red Angus Steer Wins Eating Quality Award

September 2, 2010

A Red Angus steer, bred and donated by Kelynack Red Angus, Southbrook, Queensland has taken a middleweight class honour for eating quality at this years’ Brisbane RNA. The steer was prepared by the Downlands College Cattle Show Team, before being exhibited at the Show. Standing in the “top line” on the hoof, the early middleweight steer, nicknamed “Ranga” by the Downlands students, then went onto be awarded the Meat Standards Australia (MSA) Eating quality Award, in addition to scoring top points for marbling.
After an administrative policy decision by the RNA, the steer was not auctioned but with prize monies and top grid price, a total of $1124 was donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Queensland. Lorna Will, of KelynackRed Angus, said the result was very satisfying “ The Downlands Cattle Show Team did an excellent job donating their preparation of the steer, and to have the entire proceeds of $1124 go towards finding a cure for MS is a great result. We also congratulate Craig and Renee Gapes for donating their steer to Youngcare this year, as this is a charity that assists many sufferers of MS.”
Lorna Will also announced that another steer would be donated in 2011. “This is our way to help the fight and find a cure for MS. Downlands will again take part in this fundraising thus supporting the broader community. Many thanks must go to Mr Tim Morrison and the Downlands Cattle Show Team”.
