Inaugural Tas Junior Beef Expo
With a total of 56 exhibitors, aged 8 years to 25 years old, the Expo focussed on the commercial side of the beef industry as well as the glitz and glamour of cattle showing.
For Tasmanian Shorthorn Youth members, the Expo is a great chance to learn new skills and build networks at a professionally run handlers camp, without the cost of heading to the mainland.
In the handlers classes, Shorthorn Youth member Emily Loane was awarded Reserve Champion Junior Handler whilst fellow Youth member Sarah Rayner was awarded the Champion Intermediate Handler.
Several studs supplied Shorthorn heifers for the event with Cherry Tree Shorthorns, Royston Shorthorns, Dunroan Shorthorns, Kidman Downs Shorthorns and Nudgaside Shorthorns all kindly supplying animals for the event.
In the showing section, Shorthorn Youth member, Brady Rouse, Nudgaside Shorthorns, won the inaugural owned and exhibited class, whilst Champion Female was awarded to Dunroan Comet Primrose L4, exhibited by Catie Loane.
