A great Adelaide show for Woonallee

12 September 2011

Once again Adelaide show allowed us to show our cattle to the public and the beef industry in general. The day was a huge success for our programme and a great promotion for our upcoming sale.

Woonallee Favourite (P) dominated the junior bull section winning Junior and Grand Champion bull and also taking out the Supreme Exhibit for the breed. A powerful calf weighing 685kgs at only 13 months, he appealled to judge Mr Jeff Noller for his overall capacity, style, wonderful hair type and sires presence. Favourite teamed up with Woonallee Fiorenza F260 to win the Interbreed Junior pair award and also was a member of the winning sires progeny interbreed team, sire by Corinda Downs Deliver.  He sells on the 9th of February.

One of the most important parts of the show is the led steer competition. This enables us to determine what our genetics are doing from a commercial point of veiw and the resuts this year were outstanding. Woonallee Wildcard was awarded Reserve champion heavy weight steer in one of the strongest line up of steers for many years. Wildcard won his class just beating Woonallee Warrior who came second to him in the heavy export breeder steer class. The simmentals came 3rd in the O'connor trophy award for the team of 3 steers, 2 of these steers were bred by Woonallee and the 3rd was owned by Regan and Karen Burrows, Yerwal Estate and was sired by Woonallee Bold. All of these steers placed in there on hoof classes and all scored over 80 points on the Hook. Other notable results were a steer exhibited by Shirley Barker, Bokara Simmentals, the steer was awarded Reserve champion heavy domestic steer and was sired by Woonallee Clockwork. In all Woonallee had 5 steers exhibited for the following results;

- 1st in heavy export breeders class - Exhibited by The Bruggemann family on behalf of Woonallee
