Young, up-and-coming Charolais breeders took out supreme exhibit during their second-ever showing of the breed. The title was awarded to Golden Rose Charolais stud, Macorna, for their 16-month-old heifer, Golden Rose Fairy Floss. Grand champion bull was awarded to junior exhibit Windjammer Tim Tam, from Windjammer Simmental and Charolais stud, Flinders, exhibited by Jaime Vosper.

Charolais judge former former Charolais Society of Australia president David Bondfield, Dalveen, Qld, said it was great to see two junior animals in the top line up for the breed. Mr Bondfield said both cattle were a good example of the genetics moving through in young animals at the moment. “I really liked the function on these two animals, they’re not extreme in any way,” he said. “They sit right in that optimum growth pattern to suit more markets, they’ve both got fat cover, lots of muscle, are extremely sound, have great front ends and are well put together.”
