Texas Takes Out Grainfed Export Chiller Class of Australia's biggest Carcase Competition - against 492 Head

Who would have ever thought after Texas Angus's success at the Royal Sydney Beef Challenge we could follow it up with a win at Rockhampton's Beef Australia in the most hotly contested Class with of 492 head?

Ben and Wendy's decision to entered the last handful of steers they had left in late 2017 into the prestigious Beef Australia's ANZ National Carcase Competition turned out to be a very good one! There were 1077 head graded at 21 processing plants from every state, making it Australia's largest Caracse Competition and was described by the Chairman, Mr David Hill, "as the most unique carcase competition in the world." "This competition is not about a ribbon any more, its about the opportunity for education and benching marking  performance against the best in the country for eating quailty and yield."

 

They knew their steers would be competing against the best all breed beef producers across Australia and feedlotters including Prime City, Rockdale and Teys. However Ben and Wendy really wanted to further expand our bench marking program and identify sirelines particularly in the grainfed export trade. They were reassured by sending their steers to MacCues Wilga Feedlot would give them the best comparable chance and with the help of Ben Hiscox BJA and Mike MacCue they selected the steers into their pens of 3 for only Class 6 100 Day Grainfed Export Chiller Bullocks (300 - 420kgs). To win this class, which had the largest entries of the competition (492hd and 330hd more than any other class) and being their first time time entering the grainfed class was an absolute thrill for them and really emphasised their point of difference of their high performaing cattle hitting market specifications without compromising carcase qualiy.

Triple Crown for Texas

Last month the 2017 Sydney Royal Beef Challenge was held in Tamworth and the final results were annouced. We were astounded by the success of our Texas progeny within the competition. It was very special to have our two boys Will and Lachie accepting the awards on behalf of Ben who was away with Rosie at Rockhampton for rowing. For 2 years in a row we have won Grand Champion Domestic Pen, Reserve Champion Domestic Pen (Rosie, WIll and Lachie's steers) and Reserve Champion Individual. We also won the prestigious RAS Pertpetual Consumer Trophy for Champion Export Taste Test Caracse!
