Brian Hills, Moura, has rated his double success at the Callide Dawson Beef Carcase Competition as something to cherish.

Mr Hills claimed top prize in the pen of grainfed trade steers.

His entry of Charbray steers, Pen 20, was awarded 193.36 points to give him victory over Heather Stewart and Family, GL Campbell & Co (Pen 11, 189.44pts), Rob Sinnamon, Yulgilbar (Pen 5, 187.61pts), Richard and Beth Judd (Pen 32, 186.04pts) and Mike and Vicki Bradshaw (Pen 18, 185.33 pts).

He topped that win when his entry No 586 was named champion grainfed steer carcase with 148.88 points.

"I feel over the moon," Mr Hills said.

"This is a pretty prestigious event.

"Coming over here I said to my partner that whoever wins this will be doing pretty well.

"This is the pinnacle.

"It gets all the best entries from all over the place and the judges are tough but fair.

"They look for the best and reward the best.

"I knew I had some pretty good steers but never thought I'd have steers good enough to win it.

"I just cannot believe the result.

"It is beyond my belief, absolutely beyond anything I could have wished for."

Mr Hills, said the win would provide obvious incentive to re-enter the competition given this was only his second outing in the CDBCC.

"We haven't had a bad run of the weather compared with lot of the other producers around the place," he said.

"For sure it's been an ordinary year but you have to make the best of what you have.

"The country is dry but you do what you do and this gives me heaps of real satisfaction.

"These results make it all worthwhile.

"You get that acknowledgement and puts the spring in the step and the smile on the face.

"It will be an easier drive home, that's for sure."

The reserve champion grainfed steer winner was Chris Holmes, Terence Vale on 147.95 points.
