Barraba Shorthorn Feature Show

A shorthorn feature was held at Barraba on the 10th & 11th of March. 35head of shorthorns from 12 exhibitors were assessed by Steven Peake – Bowen Poll Herefords. Exhibitors travelled from Condobolin in the Central West, through to Inverell in the North, to put together an excellent display of high quality cattle. Highlights included 6 cows over 24 months of age, 7 18-20 month old heifers and 7 bulls between 16-18months of age.

We were fortunate to receive amazing sponsorship from Australian Animal Genetics, Northern Artificial Breeders, Gallagher, The Land, Elders, Landmark, NSW Shorthorns & Shorthorn Beef.
