The SCOTS PGC College Cattle Club Team woke up in the early hours of the morning, hopped in a minibus and travelled to Crows Nest to compete in the Darling Downs Sub Chamber Finals last Saturday (18 May). To qualify for the Darling Downs Finals, participants had to place first in Paraders or Junior Judging competitions at shows along the regional show circuit. This year, Arena Wheeler, Clay Armstrong and Bridie Shooter all qualified to compete at the Sub Chamber event.

An unfortunate outbreak of the flu meant that Arena and Clay were unable to compete, however, Lily Emmerton and Marty Worboys stepped up in their place. Marty placed 3rd in the Prime Cattle Junior Judging and 3rd in the Cookery Judging competition. Lily placed 1st in the Stud Cattle Junior Judging and Bridie placed 2nd in the Farm Produce Judging, 2nd in the Stud Beef Junior Judging and 3rd in the Prime Cattle Junior Judging.

Unfortunately, no one qualified to compete further at a State level, however, an accumulation of all of the team’s Junior Judging points led us taking out a win for the Day/Jensen shield for our team judging efforts.

The Show Team looks forward to preparing for the Ekka in August.
