Local breeders Lachlan and Kate James of Wallawong Murray Greys have once again secured a number of ribbons at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Karloo Heath, by Wallawong Target, prepared and exhibited by the James family and Heath Birchall won carcase class nine, Reserve Middleweight Champion Carcase and a gold medal on 92 points.
Groveleigh Warwick, by Wallawong Ripsnorter, prepared and exhibited by the James family and Groveleigh Partnership won carcase class eight and was a gold medal winner on 91.5 points.
Wallawong Murray Greys and Glenliam Farm Murray Greys partnered to receive the Stan Hill Trophy and ribbon for the winning team of three carcases.
“We are very proud to have again partnered with our clients to demonstrate the industry leading carcase qualities that are possible when using Wallawong Murray Greys,” Mr James said.
“Our clients' cattle and carcase quality are paramount to our business and to see them do so well is testament to this.
“Murray Greys have proven once again that they offer superior carcase qualities over and above other breeds.”
“It is no fluke that they have won the 2016 interbreed group of carcases at Sydney Royal, Brisbane Royal and Adelaide Royal and have backed it up by winning Sydney again in 2017,” he said.
“All breeds enter these competitions but it is Murray Greys that are consistently winning them.”
In 2016, Wallawong and Heath Birchall won Reserve Champion Middleweight Carcase and the only gold medal in the Purebred Open Middleweight competition.
