Winning interbreed championships left, right and centre, stud breeders from across NSW proved they were strong competitors of interstate royal shows with quality livestock.
Exhibitors from throughout the state successfully overcame tough competition at royal shows in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney to take out numerous interbreed titles.
The Sydney Royal Show kicked off the winning streak for the state when judges selected Caloona Park Little Hero, exhibited by Steven and Louie Franco, Tamworth, as the supreme all breeds bull and reserve champion Urquhart Trophy winner.
A member of the Hordern Trophy winning Red Angus pair was RDM Red Solo Cup exhibited by the Wheeler family of RDM Angus, Wellington. Red Solo Cup was 16-months-old when he shared the win with Queensland cow, GK Red Ruba G40, exhibited by Gavin and Kirrily Iseppi, Dalby.
Is it possible for the NSW reign to continue in 2018 or will they be chipped at the post by their interstate revivals? Keep posted in March when the first of the Royal run begins at Sydney.
