Angus excellence was again on display at the 2021 Sydney Royal Easter Show, and shone against the best cattle on display during the interbreed competition on April 4.
Angus prevailed across a number of the top titles, being awarded the Hordern Perpetual Trophy for best pair consisting of the Grand Champion Male and Female of each breed, with PC Miss J260 Conversion M205SV exhibited by Pine Creek Angus, Cowra, NSW and Hillview Quigley Q18# exhibited by Hillview Angus, Bugendore, together taking out the top honour.
Quigley Q18# was also awarded Interbreed Bull, coming in as the Reserve for the Urquhart Perpetual Trophy for the supreme beef exhibit, rounding out a successful Sydney run for Danny and Debbie Hill, following taking out the Champion Angus exhibit the previous day.
Judge for the Hordern Trophy was Mr Rob Sinnamon, Yulgilbar Pastoral Company, Baryulgil.
Mr Sinnamon said he placed the Angus exhibits in the top two breeds as they were industry relevant, commercially focused cattle that have the consistency, volume and capacity he as looking for illustrated through the group.
Pine Creek Angus continued their top form, winning The Gordon Fuller Memorial Perpetual Trophy for interbreed breeders group with their team of Angus. The breeders group was made made up of the grand champion Angus female, PC Miss J260 Conversion M205SV, the junior champion Angus bull PC Royal Roll R017PV and winner of the Angus bull 19 and not over 20 months class, PC Quick Silver Q063SV.
Judge Scott Hann, of Truro Herefords and Poll Herefords, Bellata said “The cow is the best part of the team..Powerful, she has frame, constitution and a good bull calf behind her.
“The younger bull that leads the group may be the best junior bull out here, he has a moderate frame but so much weight and EMA (eye muscle area).”
“And the second bull is easy fleshing and has a tonne of muscle in him.”
