Toowoomba Royal Show’s supreme interbreed cattle exhibit has been won by KBV Stud’s Magistrate Simmental bull.
The 22-month-old bull, owned by KBV Simmental & Simbrah Stud’s Marty Rowlands and Stephen Lean, caught the eye of judges during the Large Breed Interbreed competition. The polled Magistrate bull was awarded champion interbreed bull of Toowoomba Royal Show before going on to win the Malcolm McCosker Memorial Trophy supreme cattle exhibit. It’s the second year in a row KBV Simmental & Simbrah Stud, Murphy Creek have won the prestigious memorial award.
It was KBV Magistrate bull’s first showing and he will now travel to Beef Australia 2018 to compete in the Simmental beef cattle judging.
“The Magistrate bull’s sire won Toowoomba Royal Show interbreed bull four years ago, so it’s a bloodline that’s currently working very well for us,” Mr Lean said.
“He’s a great bull that we’re sure will go on to do good things for the Simmental breed.”
KBV Simmental & Simbrah Stud’s success continued in the showring when they were awarded Large Breed Interbreed Female with polled KBV Brasilia cow and four-month-old calf at foot. The KBV Brasilia cow had previously competed at Toowoomba Royal Show and is one of the stud’s foundation Simbrah females.
“The cow’s calf is by KBV Legacy who won Toowoomba Royal Show’s supreme cattle exhibit last year,” Mr Lean said.
Stud beef cattle judges at Toowoomba Royal Show this year were Allen Oxlade, Brymaroo, Bart Bowen, Meandarra, Cayb Schwerin, Byac Santa Stud, Allora and James Dockrill, Casino.
Most Successful Exhibitor of the Show was awarded to Gold Crest Limousin.
Small Breeds Interbreed
A large crowd gathered to watch this year’s Toowoomba Royal Show’s Small Breed Interbreed cattle judging.
The champion Small Breed Interbreed bull was awarded to 17-month-old Mason Farm Rough Diamond Ausline bull.
The Rough Diamond bull was bred by Tracey Krahenbring, Greenmount who has being developing her Mason Farm Ausline cattle stud for the past two-and-half-years.
“The Rough Diamond bull was shown at the Queensland Royal Show last year and also competed here at Toowoomba as well,” Ms Krahenbring said.
“The bull will have a break for six weeks now and then return to the show circuit starting at Toogoolawah Show.
“This bull is from our first crop of calves we breed in our Mason Farm Ausline Stud.”
Margo Hayes’ Vitulus Ausline Stud, Lockyer Valley took out champion Small Breed Interbreed Female with Colombo Park Kismet and a two-month-old calf at foot.
“It’s great for this cow to win today because she was reserve champion last year,” Ms Hayes said.
“The Colombo Park Kismet cow will now go on to compete at Beef 2018 in May.”
