Cattle Club Update

Mr Peter Collett

Our annual Paddock to Plate tour was a great success last weekend.  Cattle Club students and their families set off on their tour to learn what’s involved in how a steak meets the plate.

The tour included a visit to a local feedlot, John Dee abbatoir and was completed with a butchering demonstration by mobile butcher, Rob McKechnie.  Our students really enjoyed learning about the complete process and where the prime cuts of meat come from.

On Sunday members of our Cattle Club Team will be heading off to the EKKA for the Hoof and Hook Competition. We have nine head of cattle and a similar number of students making their way to Brisbane this weekend and returning on Wednesday afternoon. The College team will compete against 30 other schools for the trophy of best school. This is based on an accumulation of points from the Junior Judges, Paraders, Herdperson and school steer competitions.

Best of luck team!
