Macquarie Cattle Team wraps up the show circuit with success

By Admin on 7 September 2017

The Macquarie Cattle Team had highly commendable success at Narromine Show on 2 September to end their show circuit for 2017. Our students absolutely shone!

Their results were as follows:

  • Ebony Watson: Junior Champion Parader Under 18 and Grand Champion Parader Under 25 against very strong competition
  • Laura Kiel: Grand Champion Judge Under 25 and Reserve Champion Parader Under 18
  • Kasey Bogie: Reserve Champion Judge Under 25
  • Kasey Bogie, Jenni Tink, Boudicea Blatch and George Parkes all placed in their respective judging and/or parading classes

The Macquarie heifers came away with a Reserve Champion, 2 first places and 1 second place.

A big thank you to Fearnley Brangus, Gilgandra for their generous support and loan of "Mabel" and "Millie" to the Macquarie ag plot for the duration of Terms 2 and 3, 2017. The heifers have now returned to their home property until Term 2 next year when they will return with calves at foot.

We are excited about what 2018 holds for our Macquarie Cattle Team. Additional cattle from Alpine Charolais and Fearnley Brangus will join our cattle program and extra shows will be added to our circuit. Thank you to parents and students for their ongoing support and enthusiasm.

That’s a wrap for 2017!
