A big deep bodied Angus heifer and a bull whose pedigree is full of champions has taken out the jackpot at Canberra Royal.
It was a hard task for judge Sam Hunter, AgStock, Yass, to select just one male and female winner in the impressive 37 heifers and 20 bulls line up competing in the jackpot.
Amongst the 37 heifers in the competition, there were 10 different breeds represented that were all fighting for the jackpot pool of $1850.
Mr Hunter said the cattle in the jackpot line-up was of such high quality, which was unusual to find in a competition like this.
After narrowing down the heifers to a top six, Mr Hunters winner was a 10-month-old Angus heifer, PC Miss Pandora S325, from Pine Creek Angus, Woodstock.
Sired by HF Kodiak 5R, this is the best heifer Pine Creek has bred, according to principal, Greg Fuller.
Mr Hunter described the heifer as “a big deep bodied heifer” that was quite square made but still retained a lot of femininity through her front end.
“She is a heifer I don’t think you could pack any more meat or carcase in to,” Mr Hunter said.
“I really like the angulation in her hip and the way she carries her hind third.”
After competing in the eight months and not over 12 class tomorrow [Saturday], the next stop for the heifer will be Sydney Royal.
