Angus influences Feedback Trial results

February 15, 2017 3:45 pm

First time exhibitors RG Allen & Sons were awarded Grand Champion Pen of 5 steers with a pen of Angus steers at The Land’s 2017 Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial, as Angus and Angus influenced cattle were prominent throughout the awards.

Held in conjunction with Teys Australia, the Beef Spectacular Feedlot trial attracted entries from stud and commercial producers from New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. A total of 75 teams from 43 vendors equated to 375 head in the 2017 trial.

In their first year of competition, RG Allen & Sons, Mortlake VIC, took out the coveted title of Grand Champion Pen of 5 steers, as well as the Teys Certified Premium Black Angus Champion Pen.

Having only recently returned to the cattle business, RG Allen & Sons, representative, James Knight said that they had entered the competition in order to benchmark their cattle and to receive feedback on their breeding direction.

“We knew it would be comprehensive and we would receive what we needed to further our business.”

The Reserve Champion pen of Five Steers was awarded to the Minnamurra Pastoral Company, Boggabri NSW, for their Angus cross pen.

A different pen of 5 Angus steers, also exhibited by Minnamurra Pastoral Company was awarded the Riverine Premium Beef Champion Pen.
