At the recent Mackay Show, Wyoming Romagnolas entered 10 Romagnola/Brahman cross steers into various classes of the commercial (hoof) and carcase (hook) cattle competitions of the show.

In the commercial section there were 154 head nominated across several categories.  In the Grainfed Single Steer Showing 2 Permanent Teeth class we placed 3rd with one of our steers.

The following day in the carcase competition we placed 1st and 2nd in the Grainfed Chiller Bullock Class – Single Bullock Suitable to the Japanese Market, with the 1st place carcase then going on to claim the Champion Carcase of the show ahead of 125 other entries.

These results complement our success in the commercial cattle competitions at Beef Australia 2015 where we were minor place getters in the Ruralco Commercial Cattle Championship and the ANZ National Carcase Competition.

We believe that the end result is what we should all be aiming for in our herds and we feel that our Romagnola cross cattle are beating our expectations with our placings in the carcase competitions a true testament to that.
