Our Exhibitors Group of Three also placed second in the Interbreed as did our Pair of Animals under two years. Their was strong competition and I am thrilled with the results. The Shorthorns had very consistent groups and congratulations to Des & Denise, I am pleased to be beaten by such good animals. The group classes are about matching the type of animals you put together so that are of the same type and quailty. The Judge's comments on our animals were very complimentary with one being "this exhibitor knows what they are doing with this consistent line of animals before us". It has taken us 14 years to get to this point, but by consistently using our bulls for as long as we can and getting consistently good progeny it has paid off.
We also had strong enquiries for our animals, even though we were around the corner in separate stalls due to our Johnes MN3 status. This is something we will not compromise so to be on our own to protect the disease free status we have did not bother us in the least. Our trailer was parked near by and it has our stud name down the side so people still found us.
Thank you Ulverstone Show we had a GREAT day. Even the rain could not dampen our spirits.
