Another win at the Ekka – 5th YEAr in a row

Minnamurra were amongst the winners at the 2020 RNA paddock to palate awards at the Royal Brisbane show, taking out the Champion Carcase in the 100 day HGP Free Class, as well as third overall for a pen of 6 carcases. (A total of 150 steers were entered into this class). The winning carcase was by Minnamurra Jaguar J156 out of one of our Te Mania blood Angus cows. A very pleasing result considering we had sold virtually all our Speckle cross calves as weaners, due to the drought, and the few we retained were paddock fed right up to the entry weight, with no supplementary feeding at all. More proof of how well Speckle Park cattle do in dry conditions, and what a great meat cross Speckle x Angus is.

SIRE SHOOTOUT SUCCESS

Minnamurra Plunderer P196 was voted outright winner in the viewers’ choice section of the Sire Shootout Competion with double the votes of the second placed bull.
  
The competition was run by Australian Community Media (Rural Press) and attracted 83 entrants from all the major breeds in Australia. The bull was required to be registered with a breed society and for sale in 2020 through either a private treaty or a public auction. Plunderer P196 will feature in our onsite sale on September 4th.
