At the 2014 Angus Youth Roundup in Toowoomba, I was fortunate enough to be awarded the Outwest Angus All Breeds Heifer Show Award. This award gave me the opportunity to travel to Dubbo with the Outwest Angus Show Team to attend the 2014 All Breeds Heifer Show. The heifer that I showed on behalf of Outwest Angus was Outwest Princess. She went on to be awarded Reserve Champion Senior Heifer. The highlight of the experience for me was winning the Grand Champion Junior Judging title for the 2014 All Breeds Heifer Show. This then gave me the opportunity to come back in 2015 and be the Associate Judge. Together with the over-judge Lester Job from Moombi Shorthorn Stud we judged over 200 head of cattle – Heifers, Steers and Bulls. This would have to be one of the best experiences I have ever had.
I would like to give my sincere thanks to Ewan and Marg Mcleish of Outwest Angus for giving me the opportunity to attend the All Breeds Heifer Show. It was a very valuable learning experience that I enjoyed greatly.
