Peter Collett | Cattle Club Co-ordinator
We are very happy to report the Cattle Club has more than doubled in numbers this year to a total of 25 members. This is partly due to a change of training times to a Tuesday and Thursday lunch time and Wednesday afternoon to avoid clashes with other co-curricular activities. It is fantastic to see the enthusiastic nature and passion for learning about beef cattle displayed by all the members of the team this year. There is a wonderful positive team feel enriched by our captain, Bridie Shooter.
In follow up to the results we reported from the Allora Show two weeks ago, we are happy to share that our team is developing well which is really paying off in the ring. We are improving on our judging skills, handling ability and team work – Killarney show was a true success. The cattle performed consistently in all of their classes and everyone achieved well all-round. Tyler and Arena both placed first in their paraders classes (with Arena now qualified for the Darling Downs Finals), followed by Clay in second and Harriet, Clarina and Mia receiving third placings. Our junior judges continued to perform well with Tyler placing first, Thea second and Harriet third in their classes.
Congratulations to all of our team members and a warm welcome to those of you who are new to the Cattle Club. I look forward to working with each of you throughout the year.
