The Cattle team was busy at the start of this term, with students and their animals competing locally in the Camden Haven Show and then further afield at the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza. The Camden Haven Show was very successful with Jarrah Lee Kouwenberg, Sophie Stace, Aralyn Martin, Natasha Day and Kirra Morris all picking up ribbons in a variety of events.
After this local success, the team then moved on to Scone and the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza the following week. With over 800 students and 400 bovine competitors from around the state, the stakes were higher this time around. We did have some success with Natasha Day picking up a ribbon for her parading and 3rd place for our Limousin steer Colin. Along with competing, students took part in a number of educational activities across the four days and enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Darley thoroughbred Horse stud, which is part of the international Godolphin stable.
With a new Speckled Park steer now at the school and two more to arrive next year, any students interested in working with cattle are encouraged to contact Mr Holland for more information.
