Branches Report 

By Amanda Barlow
As the holder of the Branches portfolio on the Board, I had the pleasure of attending the Victorian and NSW Branch meetings, plus General meetings which have been held this year.

I have also had communications with the S.A. and Tasmanian branches. All these meetings have shown me the value of the Branches and the hard work of Branch members.While all branches have had activities severely limited by Covid, some sales and shows did take place.

The NSW Branch, now headed by Matthew Walker, hosted a successful Spring Fling sale and is looking forward to the Sydney Royal Show next year. It is hoped to have a display at the Show to help commemorate 200 years since establishment of the Coates Herd Book. Shorthorns are the only breed to have been exhibited at every Sydney Show and the RAS wishes to highlight the breed.

President of the Victorian Branch, Jesse Brown, mentioned the great conditions for cattle at present. He congratulated those breeders who participated at Dubbo, Naracoorte and Beef Week.

The Tasmanian Branch is planning a multi vendor sale next year as either a stand alone or as part of Auctions Plus. It is also planned to run another feature in Tasmanian Country and possibly a Field Day. The Branch Executive is also sponsoring the Tasmanian Junior Beef Expo to be held at Deloraine 25th -27th February 2022.

About Shorthorn

The Shorthorn breed is truly unique, from their distinctive roan colour, to their rich breed history and most importantly, the wonderful community of breeders, there is nothing else quite like a Shorthorn.

The key to the Shorthorn breeds advantage lies in their balanced genetic profile, driven by market participation that has been developed and refined, after more than 200 years of genetic selection under Australian conditions.
