Waite A Wyle Blondes win both Grand Champions at Beef2024 Blonde d’Aquitaine Champions

Waite A Wyle Blondes from Maclagan in Queensland are celebrating after winning the Grand Champion Male and Grand Champion Female titles in the Blonde d’Aquitaine judging in the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship at Beef2024.

At almost 18-months-old, Waite A Wyle Trademark was crowned Grand Champion Male, while 27-month-old Waite A Wyle Trish received the rosette for Grand Champion Female, with her calf in tow.

Judge Scott Hann from Truro Herefords and Associate Judge Callum McUtchen, a 12-year-old second-generation breeder of South Devon cattle, were impressed with both winners, saying the Blonde d’Aquitaine was a fantastic breed of cattle.

“It would be great to see more of them here, as they are a great breed of cattle,” Mr Hann said.

In particular, he said Waite A Wyle Trademark was a powerful type of bull with a beautiful extension through the front end.

“He just keeps it all together,” he said.

“He’s good up on top and a great butt shape.

“He naturally keeps his head up and his shoulders are strong, with a beautiful extension through the front end.”

Commenting on the judging for the Grand Champion Female, Mr Hann said both he and his associate, Callum McUtchen, commended all the breeders on the exhibition.

“They are a muscly breed with long bodies and beautiful front ends, and as much as we love the heifers, we went with the cow.”

Jenny Williams from Monal Blondes at Monto presented Waite A Wyle Trish with her winning rosette.
