TERRY Randall describes his 2014 show team as probably the best he has ever had.
After a very good showing at the Sydney Royal Show, where every animal the Tieri Brahman studmaster showed received a placing, his animals went on to receive the judge’s nod at Alpha last week.
His grand champion heifer, Crinum Red Crest also recently won the interbreed calf championship at Roma Show.
It was Crinum Foreman’s day at Alpha though, taking the broad ribbon as grand champion senior bull before being judged the supreme champion beast of the show.
Foreman had placed second to the grand champion Brahman in Sydney.
“I fluked a good year of calves,” was Terry’s assessment.
As well as the Highlands circuit, he intends showing at Mackay and Proserpine shows as well as at the Ekka.
“It’s a great way to get my cattle out to the people,” he said.
“The champions will go into the Nebo sale in November.”
Emerald Santa Gertrudis stud Canowindra showed the junior champion bull at Alpha, with Canowindra Magnum, and the stud was second to Crinum in the most successful exhibitor section, with Bauhinia Park third.
In the commercial section of the show, Minnamurra Goody was first in the steers 400kg and under class, while shedmate Minnamurra Knock Knock won first place in the steers above 400kg class.
