TAS Country : October 2th 2011
4 Tasmanian Country Friday, October 21, 2011 News Royal Hobart Show SHOW STARS: Kanangra Stud's Sheree Lawrence with Samuel Ivory; Cheryl Tapp, of Sorell, with her Santa Gertrudis bull; and Helen Brock, of Bayswater Red Angus Stud. Pictures: ROGER and EMILY HANSON Limousin ride straight to the top YOUNG beef stud breeder Sheree Lawrence has made her presence felt at this week's Royal Hobart Show. The 22-year-old from the Kanangra Stud at Wynyard took home Grand Champion and Junior Champion sashes for her Limousin cattle. ''This is the first time I have showed in Hobart with my own animals, and it's been great. I have been getting some great comments,'' she said. Ms Lawrence had been a handler for another stud at the Royal Hobart Show several years ago. The former Yolla District High School student, who started out on her own about two years ago, reaped rewards at the Burnie and Launces- ton shows, winning Reserve Junior Champion titles. ''My mum and dad started their stud about 17 years ago and I love the industry, especially the Limousin cattle, so I took up in the industry as well,'' Ms Lawrence said. Her brother, Ricky, also has a beef stud. Limousin cattle have their origins in France. ''They are a wonderful animal,'' Ms Lawrence said. The Limousin not only appeal to butchers for their beef, but also for the value of their surplus and cull fe- males. Santa Gertrudis breeder Cheryl Tapp, from the Cheralton Park stud at Sorell, had her hands full showing her To Page 5 OFFICIALLY IMPRESSED: Checking out beef displays at the Hobart Show are, from left, Lorraine and Rob Sinnamon, Roberts livestock agent Brian Peacock and councillor in charge of judging David Skinner. Picture: EMILY HANSON Expert lauds Tassie beef ROGER HANSON TASMANIA'S commercial cattle shown at this week's Royal Hobart Show got a big thumbs-up from one of Australia's leading beef experts. Rob Sinnamon, who is general manager at the Yulgilbar Station Santa Gertrudis stud at Baryulgil in New South Wales, judged the com- mercial steers live on the hoof. Mr Sinnamon, who has judged beef cattle in the US and throughout Australia, was impressed by the beef he saw at the show. ''It is quality trade beef and the top end of the export cattle is outstand- ing,'' he said. ''The beef is of very good quality. ''The Tasmanian beef meets the specifications of the industry today.'' Mr Sinnamon, who also judged other beef categories at the show, said he was enjoying his role at the Hobart Show. He was at the show until today with his wife Lorraine. Mr Sinnamon also judged stud beef cattle. David Skinner, councillor in charge of judging, said he was pleased Tasmanian beef producers were get- ting high recognition from one of the nation's leading beef experts. Roberts livestock agent Brian Pea- cock acted as chief steward of the commercial cattle. Waterloo Pastoral, from the Huon, had a rewarding day, taking home the top three spots in the small steer class and also showing the Grand Cham- pion. Helen Brock, from Bayswater Red Angus stud at Penna, showed the Senior Champion. The winning animals were auc- tioned after judging, with brisk bid- ding by local meat traders, whole- salers and retailers, including Hill St Gourmet and Woolworths, for the right to buy the prime beef for processing. 037711 Call 1300 WIDE SPAN (1300 94 33 77) Check out our full range online at www.sheds.com.au Zinc = Zincalume all over / CB = Colorbond walls & trim, Zincalume Roof The "Lets Do A Deal" promotion commences on Saturday October 1, 2011 at 00.01 (AEST) and concludes Midnight Saturday December 31, 2011.
