Braford Champions announced at Beef2024

The grand champion female rosette topped off a successful show for Clifton-based Sunny Lawn Braford Stud at the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship at Beef2024.

After claiming first in the cow 36 months and under 48 months class, Sunny Lawn Dresden 1484 went on to secure the senior and grand champion titles, with judge, Rick Greenup, and his associate, Sam Donovan, particularly impressed by the three Braford females in the ring.

“Sam and I were pretty excited with the three exhibits,” Mr Greenup said.

“The two heifers in the lead have a lot of softness expression and femininity, good teat and udder placement for their age, however we’re giving the grand champion to the cow with the calf, which is her second calf I am told.

“She has a bright future, and congratulations to all the competitors.”

In making his closing remarks before announcing MCN Wolfman as the Grand Champion Male, Mr Greenup commended the breeders on the three bulls in the ring.

“They’ve reached their potential within their feeding program, but they’re still really clean in the hock and not over done on the feet,” he said.

“Also, the muscle pattern, as I expressed before, is needed for carcase and that’s what we have out here in front of us.

“The big bull on the end is just so clean and easier. He’s our champion of the breed because he’s so clean, and I think a clear winner.”
