Angus cattle have once again come to the forefront in the 2021 Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial, with a commanding performance from the Angus breed.
Like most events from the past 12 months, the awards night was handled a little differently for 2021 and moved from a function in Wagga Wagga NSW, to a virtual presentation via The Land’s social media channels.
This competition based on real life commercial settings saw 48 exhibitors enter 84 teams and 420 steers into the competition.
Highlights from this years’ results include the fact that each of the 10 Eating Quality Awards handed out went to teams of Angus steers, with Baringa Pastoral Company Pty Ltd, taking out first place reaching a MSA Index of 65.56; Kyeamba Downs Partnership won Reserve Champion for Feedlot Performance and overall Reserve Champion Team and Barfold Beef won Champion Carcase.
Angus Australia’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Diana Wood said that, ‘The Angus breed is renowned for carcase performance and eating quality and with such a consistent performance by Angus teams across the board in this feedback trial, it is no wonder that Angus remains the breed of choice for commercial cattle breeders.’
