Simmental champions announced at Beef2024

Results in the Simmental ring at the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship at Beef 2024 mirrored last year’s Brisbane Royal Show results, with Meldon Park Stamp Duty named grand champion male and KBV Romy grand champion female in judging by Andrew Olive of Raglan Brahmans.

Mr Olive remarked on the length and presence of the grand champion bull, bred by Rebecca and Liz Skene of Meldon Park stud, Cecil Plains, who also showed the reserve senior champion male, Bandeeka Taylor Made.

“He walks into the ring and everyone has to look at him because at 1100kg and 140 in the eye muscle, this bull has a lot of presence about him, he covers an acre of soil and can handle himself mobility-wise,” Mr Olive said.

While the junior champion heifer Elite Black Wendy T165 showed length and strength and was in calf, Mr Olive said the grand champion, KBV Romy, with a calf at foot and back in calf outshone her competitors on the day.

“I went with the cow and calf unit purely on her length and depth, hip to pins and she has a calf on the ground,” Mr Olive said.
