The Price family of Yuleba are no stranger to success in the Charolais ring and this year has proved no exception, as they claimed the most successful exhibitor award.

The Prices collected honours including junior champion heifer, Mongool Fanmail 10 and the reserve junior champion heifer, reserve senior champion bull and reserve senior champion female.

"You come up here hoping to do well but it's always pretty tough competition in this particular ring with the Charolais and it's good for you to get a few wins and put your stud out there at the Brisbane Ekka," Moongool Charolais co-principal Ivan Price said.

"It was good to see our young females doing so well, actually our junior champion female was off the interbreed winning animal at Sydney Royal, so she knows all about winning.

"She'll freshen up and go in calf and probably come back here as a 24-month-old heifer at the [Charolais World] Congress, all going well."

Reserve senior champion bull was Moongool The Sundance Kid, the son of cloned bull Moongool Sundance and the 2019 Roma Show supreme exhibit.

"He's a bull that ticks all the boxes in terms of body... it's a sought-after genetic too... I'm sure come sale day there will be a few people throwing their hands around," Mr Price said.
