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!

 We would also like to make a special mention the Musgrave family of Bellata, NSW who entered the RAS Beef Challenge for the first time and won the only Gold Medal awarded for the Domestic Taste Test. Bob and Michelle Jamieson of Inverell, NSW picked up a Silver Medal for the Domestic Taste Test and Dave Lonergan of Mungindi, NSW placing 2nd for Export Carcase Grid Pen and Individual.  All 3 families had never entered the competition before and their cattle were Texas Genetics.
