Kianma Poll Herefords win male and female Hereford Grand Champions at Beef2024

Forbes-based Kianma Poll Herefords has won both Grand Champion Male and Grand Champion Female in the Hereford judging at the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship at Beef2024.

Judge Jack Ward from the American Hereford Association travelled from the United States to judge the breed, with year-12 student Mitchell Taylor as his Associate Judge.

The 32-month-old, Kianma Princess S009, was awarded the Grand Champion Female, with Mr Ward saying she was a good female with length and depth.

“She’s good down her top line, beautiful set from hooks to pins and got some broodiness about her, and yet nothing excessive,” he said.

“I think her udder is nice. She’s got excellent milk flow because she’s got a tremendous calf at her side.”

In making a shared judges’ final decision on the Grand Champion Male, Mr Ward gave his compliments to the finalists in each category.

“These are three very good bulls. And I think, again, they represent this breed really well,” he said.

“They beat some awfully high-quality bulls that were right behind them.”

Associate Judge, Mitch Taylor, tapped the Senior Champion Male on the rump to let the crowd know the almost 22 months old, Kianma T-Rex was the Grand Champion Male.

Kianma Poll Herefords also won the Exhibitors Group.
