US Angus judge impressed
03 Apr 08 THE Sydney Royal Angus Feature Show featured a quality line up of more than 220 head of led Angus cattle for US judge, Dr Tom Turner, Ohio State University. The grand champion bull, Pine Creek Mr Frontliner B21, completed a trifecta of wins for breeders, Greg, Sharon and Christie Fuller, Pine Creek Angus stud, Bylong, NSW, by securing their third Peter Duddy Trophy for best Angus exhibit. Dr Tom Turner, a cattle breeder himself in the US, was impressed with the overall quality and preparation of the cattle presented and said they were, in many facets, similar to cattle in the US. “In know you’ve been through a drought, but there’s been nothing spared in the cattle’s preparation and they’re in fine shape,” Dr Turner said. “As an exhibition for the breed I thought it was splendid.” It was Dr Turner’s first visit to Australia since 2001, and while impressed with the breed’s overall functionality, he said one area of criticism was “perhaps a lack of attention by the breeders to the pelvic design”. He said while they were sound, the animals weren’t necessarily correct and some adjustments could be made. “In our country I think we’ve had a little bit more emphasis in that department,” he said. There was also an emphasis on easier fleshing cattle and, as mature cows, easier keeping out in the real world, which in the show ring has led to cattle with more body and more softness in their design with better depth into the flank, he said.
