A great display of Charolais cattle competed at this year’s Brisbane EKKA. Judge Warren Miller commented the exhibition was as strong as he had seen featuring some big classes with the highlight the senior female class with 15 head. Warren commented that this female class was as strong as he has seen in the past. Senior and grand champion female was Moongool Poppy 12 sired by Airlie Easter. Warren commented “I love the champion cow; she has length of body, cleanness through the front, softness, a perfect udder and thumping calf alongside her. Reserve Senior champion female was Moongool Fanmail 8. Both senior females were exhibited by the breeders, the Price Family.
Junior Champion heifer was Moongool Oregon 9 (P) sired by Silverstream Evolution E168E. Mr Miller commented this heifer was a very good heifer, not quite the length of the champion cow but she has lovely thickness, softness and was very similar in type to the senior cow. Reserve junior heifer was 4 Ways Noisette M83 exhibited by the Whitechurch Family, Inverell NSW.
The grand champion bull was the senior bull, Moongool Monopoly sired by Temana Golden Logie G66E. Temana Golden Logie G66e has sired the grand champion bull this year at Sydney Royal, Pickles Auctions National Showcase and Beef Australia. Mr Miller commented the champion bull was very smooth fronted, stylish and moved very well. He is a good thick soft calf with good foot and leg structure, really the complete package” Moongool also exhibited Moongool Mr Money for the reserve senior champion bull.
The Price Family continued their success in the junior bulls with Junior champion bull, Moongool Network sired by Airlie Hanz. The judge commented “ again very similar to the senior bull, probably a little extra depth of rib than the senior, soggy, soft and deep but not quite the freedom of movement of the senior”. Reserve junior champion bull was 4 Ways Noble Kahn exhibited by 4 Ways Charolais.
