TEXAS CLEANS UP MSA EATING QUALITY AWARDS at 2022 RAS Beef Challenge

 

   
 
On Friday night we attended the very commercially relevant Royal Agriculture Sydney Beef Challenge Feeder Carcase Awards held at the Powerhouse Hotel, Tamworth NSW. With only heifers to enter this year's 10th RAS Beef Challenge, the 200th year of the Royal Sydney Show and our 8th Consecutive year of the Challenge, our Angus heifers performed extremely well in the performance and MSA eating quality awards of the competition. 
 
After taking out 1st, 2nd and 3rd placings for Live assessment as well as having the highest Daily Weight Gains at the Field Day a few weeks ago, our purebred Angus heifers recorded the highest MARBLE score up to 7 (or MSA marble score of 970 pts) while the entire competition scored 0 or 1 for marbling (which correlates to MSA scores in the 300s) and to top it off we had a heifer (sired by Texas NASA) record the largest EMA of 103cm of the entire competition against crossbred steers with the added advantage of hybrid vigour!! This heifer pen recorded the 2nd highest EMA’s of the entire competition which we believe is incredible particularly when competing against high profile crossbred steers!

The highlight of the night was when we were awarded the rare RAS GOLD medal for Eating Quality which requires all 6 individuals (in our case heifers) scoring all over 62 points for MSA Index which is no easy feat. Our winning pen averaged an incredible MSA Index of 65.15 and up to 69.24 for an individual heifer which is MASSIVE!! It was our first RAS Gold medal and the RAS Beef Challenge rarely award these GOLD medals as to get all six head to score over 62 points for MSA Index is incredibly difficult, so you can imagine how excited we were to finally receive this highly prestigious award! Also our other 3 Export pens of heifers were all awarded Bronze medals for MSA Eating Qulaity. We regard this as a massive achievement and our emphasis on meat quality in our breeding program is really kicking goals! On top of these achievements we also took out the Reserve Champion Export Individual.

Texas Sires Clean up 2022 Virbac Weaner Challenge - 7,000hd

With a record yarding of 7,000 hd at this year's Virbac Weaner Challenge at Tamworth Regional Livestock Exchange, it was an absolute thrill to see Texas Angus bulls siring 3 of the 4 winning pens. Texas clients, George and Ali Duddy of Hudson Framing, Willowtree, NSW took top honours with their outstanding Angus pen of steers winning overall champion pen. These steers were described by Peter Baldwin, the Judge and CEO of the Australian Livestock and Property Agents, as "an outstanding line and blue blood genetics" and complimented the Duddy's on "their selection of bulls". These wining steers were by a draft of bulls the Duddy family purchased at our 2020 Bull Sale with Ian Morgan of Ian Morgan Livestock.

Not to be outshone, once again Texas Angus's long term client, Tony & Tanya Haling of Woolbrook NSW won the Champions heifer Pen and also the runner up heifer pen. It was the 8th year of the Virbac Weaner Challenge and the Halings have won the Overall Champion Pen for 4 years and runner up for 3 years and to see their names itched on the honour board at the Tamworth Regional Livestock Exchange is an absolute credit to their solid breeding program and continued selection of high growth Texas bulls!

It was humbling for Wendy, Hayden and Will to watch the success of both breeders considering the huge number and outstanding quality of this year's weaners and is a real credit to both families focused breeding programs.
