The 100th Harvey Show was on last weekend and once again there was success for Keysbrook-based Cooara Angus and Charolais studs principal Bruce Campbell who took out the champion steer award at this year's show.
It was a double centenary for the Harvey area with Harvey Beef also celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year.
The champion steer went up for auction at the show and was purchased by Harvey Beef for $2500 with the winning bid placed by their livestock buyer Jonathon Green, great-grandson of Ernest Green who founded Harvey Beef in 1919, just a short distance from the Harvey showgrounds.
"We are delighted to see Bruce Campbell continue to do well after his recent success in showcasing WA beef over east," general manager of livestock at Harvey Beef Kim McDougall said.
"We also congratulate the Harvey Show on its 100th fantastic show, and were pleased to support them to enable free entry for kids this year."
