TEXAS ANGUS TAKES OUT 2015 HIGHEST WEIGHT GAIN PEN AT ROYAL SYDNEY BEEF CHALLENGE
The Royal Sydney Beef Challenge winning pen for the highest daily weight gain in the 100 Day Export Feedlot Trial – 6 Pure Texas Angus Steers
We are thrilled with the results of the 2015 Royal Sydney Beef Challenge where 6 purebred Texas Angus steers placed 1st for the highest daily weight gain in the 100 day Export feed trial from a cohort of 120 steers and heifers of all breeds and crosses. We were also extremely pleased when another pen of 6 placed 2nd for daily weight gain for the 70 day Domestic feed trial which had a massive 330 steers and heifers in the group. These purebred were competing against cross bred cattle that had the added advantage of hybrid vigour. This was history making for the stud as it was the first time it has ever entered cattle in a feedlot trial and are looking forward to seeing how these steers progress in the carcase section of the competition. On visual appraisal the export pen was placed 4th overall and the stud received a 3rd placing for the best single domestic animal.
This was a great endorsement of the Angus Breed and the Texas Angus Breeding Program and a valuable way of comparing the Texas cattle to other leading commercial and seedstock operations of southern QLD and Northern NSW.
The brand that ways and pays – Breed Better With Texas!
