Champion of Champions for Angus Bull at the Ekka

August 14, 2019 11:50 am

With the Ekka currently underway in the capital of the Sunshine State, the Angus judging portion of the exhibition took place on August 9, 2019 with some excellent Angus cattle shown.   

Despite the unfavorable conditions many exhibitors have faced in the lead up to the EKKA, the Angus judging saw around 60 head of cattle shown, with Brad Hanson from Bullakeana Brangus and Hanson Angus and Ultrablacks, Moura, QLD taking up the judging honors.    

After a strong performance throughout the day, Glen Perrett of Glenrae Pastoral Co, Goomeri exhibited the Grand Champion Female, Bowenfels Jeddas Pride M18.   

Described by the judge as a “very well-formed female”, the 32-month-old cow with calf at foot was praised by Mr Hanson for her udder set and teat placement, her calf and her solidness on her feet.   

Junior Champion heifer was awarded to Kirala 839 Direction P9 exhibited by Kirala Angus, with Junior Champion Bull going to the impressive Ruby Ridge Nashville N15 exhibited by Timber Logistics Pty Ltd. 

Grand Champion Angus Bull was awarded to DSK YXC New Age N71, exhibited by Chris Knox and Helen Alexander of DSK Angus and Charolais, Connabarabran, NSW.   

DSK YXC New Age N71 had an average daily gain of 1.6kg, weighed 1142 kilograms with rib fat of 24mm, rump of 22mm and eye muscle area of 144 sq. cm.   

DSK YXC New Age N71 was sired by Young Dale Xcaliber 32X out of DSK C84 Flower F113. 

Coming together with the other grand exhibits across all breeds, exhibitors Chris Knox and Helen Alexander took out the top prize, with their rising two-year-old bull named the Champion of Champions. 

Taking out the interbreed bull, DSK YXC New Age N71 came up against 21 other breeds to take out the top accolade.   

Judging the Champion of Champions was Roger Evans of Tamworth, who believes that the bull was “the complete package”. 

A bull I really do admire for the capacity in the fore rib to the rear rib and the expression down the thigh.  He’s nice and strong through the chine, I really do admire the softness and silkiness we see in this bull, with a tremendous amount of testicular development for that age.
