The Ruralco Commercial Cattle Championships are expected to attract more than 2000 head of quality cattle, which will be judged on Sunday, 3 May 2015, at the Central Queensland Livestock Exchange (CQLX) at Gracemere.
On Monday, 4 May 2015, CQLX will host the Sale of Champions and a Feature Sale, which will attract many livestock buyers and interested parties. Placegetters in the competition will be announced at a gala dinner at Beef Australia 2015 that night.
The event will also feature a young commercial judges competition. The competition will be conducted for three age categories: 12-15 years; 15-18 years; and 18-21 years. Competitors will be required to judge four pens on conformation, muscling, market suitability and evenness of the pen. Points will be awarded for the order in which these pens are placed. The top five in each age category will be selected to comment on the pens judged. The competitor with the overall highest number of points will receive the Jan Sinclair Memorial Perpetual Trophy. Winners of each age category will receive a trophy.
