Angus and Angus influenced cattle proved very successful at the RAS Beef Challenge Awards Night, continuing a dominating result from the live judging that was held at Wilga Feedlot, Bellata in North West NSW.

The RAS Beef Challenge had seedstock and commercial entrants from not only local producers but producers from various parts of Australia.

The event judges pens of steers and heifers that are entered in 70 days on feed domestic class or 100 on feed export class, as well as individual beasts from each category.

There were excellent Angus results across the board, with Angus cattle faring well amongst some very stiff competition.

Angus cattle did very well in the Domestic Pen and Individual events with Ben and Wendy Mayne of Texas Angus taking out Domestic Champion Team with a pen of Angus heifers, and Trevor and Linda Rissman of Rosedale Pastoral Company being named Reserve Champion Team with a pen of Angus steers.

Texas Angus also won the Domestic Champion Individual with an Angus heifer.

In the Export categories, Angus and Angus influenced cattle took out a clean sweep of the awards, with Champion team and Reserve Champion Team going to Lachlan and Kate James of James Family Agriculture with two pens of Angus steers.

Yulgilbar Pastoral Company took home Champion Individual with an Angus influenced steer with James Family Agriculture finishing up with Reserve Champion Individual with an Angus steer.
