Angus Confirm Feedlot Dominance

September 20, 2017 2:41 pm

Following on from the success in the live judging of the RAS of NSW’s Annual Beef Challenge feedlot competition, Angus and Angus influenced cattle have had what can only be described as a dominant performance in the overall competition, taking out numerous major awards.

The Sydney Royal Beef Challenge attracts entries from commercial and stud beef cattle producers from around Australia and is held at Wilga feedlot, Bellata, in North West NSW.

The feedlot based Challenge sees steers and heifers entered in either a 70 days on feed domestic class or 100 days on feed export class. Entries are judged as pens and as individuals.

It was a clean sweep of the domestic section for Angus cattle, with family rivalry heating the competition up.

Ben and Wendy Mayne from Texas Angus were awarded the Champion Domestic team for a pen of Angus steers, while their children, Rosie, Will and Lachie won the Reserve Champion team, with a pen of their own Angus steers.

The Domestic Indivdiual Champion award went to an Angus steer from the Southern Border Partnership and Reserve went to a Texas Angus steer.
