It was a clean sweep for Angus in the 2019 Royal Adelaide Interbreed, taking out all five Interbreed titles against the competition of 14 other breeds.
With the Sire’s Progeny, Junior Champion Pair, Grand Champion Pair, Champion Female, Champion Bull and Supreme Champion Beef Cattle Exhibit in Show all going to Angus exhibits, it was an excellent representation of the quality of Angus cattle in Australia and a testimony to Angus breeders in a trying season.
Pine Creek Angus Stud, Cowra NSW, had an excellent showing, with a hand in each of the five interbreed awards.
The clean sweep began with the Pine Creek Angus Sire’s Progeny team awarded the all-breed award, with a team sired by LD Capitalist 316.
The Elders Prize and the Stock Journal Publishers Prize for the All-Breed Junior Champion Pair, Male and Female was awarded to the pairing of Nampara Princess P86 exhibited by Stuart and Natalie Hann, Nampara Pastoral Company and PC Pinnacle P010 exhibited by Pine Creek Angus.
PC Pinnacle P010 was then also crowned All Breed Supreme Champion Bull. The Grand Champion Angus Bull was sired by Northern View SMW Gustov 32, weighing 800kg with eye muscle area of 117 sq.cm, with 10mm rump fat and 6mm rib fat.
Black Diamond Ms Shiraz, exhibited by Pine Creek Angus, was awarded the Thomas Foods International Prize for All Breed Supreme Champion Female, in a unanimous decision by the five judges, Daniel Shike, Ryan Bajada, Paul Forman, Trent Johnstone and Tom Wilding-Davies.
Together PC Pinnacle P010 and Ms Shiraz Black Diamond N407 were placed at the top for the Princess Royal Station Prize for All Breed Champion Grand Champion Pair, Male and Female.
To round out an already successful morning, Pine Creek Angus exhibits came up against each other for the Thomas Foods International Prize for All Breed Supreme Champion Beef Cattle Exhibit in Show, with Black Diamond Ms Shiraz N407 coming out on top against the strong competition of PC Pinnacle P010. The two-and-a-half-year-old heifer with six-month-old bull calf at foot took out the top title after doing so in the Angus judging the previous day.
The final award of the competition, the Stock Journal Publishers Trophy for Most Successful Beef Cattle Exhibitor, was awarded to Pine Creek Angus.
