In 2011 we were really excited when Elizabethfields Gemma B2 followed upon her success in 2010 as Reserve Interbreed Champion in Bendigo to also take out Reserve Interbreed Champion at the Dubbo Beef Expo.
Our success with broad ribbons continued at Canberra in 2012 with Reserve Junior Champion and Senior champion Bull and going on to win the breeders group broad ribbon.
On to Sydney Royal, our favourite Royal and the show we aim to peak our cattle for each year.
On to the Competition - Our tried and tested successful breeding program once again rose to the fore as we saw our team take out the Royal double, Cow and Bull championship. This capped off a very successful year for our stud with our great success at the Sydney Royal winning both Grand Champion ribbons.
Our 18 month old heifer Elizabethfields Gemma F6, took out Junior and Grand Champion cow Winning Elizabethfields a 5th Manooka Perpetual Trophy (in 7 years of competition) and our Senior and Grand champion Bull Elizabethfields Superimpose E20, won us our first M.S.Traynor Perpetual Trophy. Superimpose then took out the Supreme Exhibit championship.
Elizabethfields has never had a senior bull compete at Sydney Royal before so this win was very special.
On to the Interbreed. In the Urquhart Trophy our Champion Heifer was called up to the line of 10 in the Cow interbreed championship and our Senior bull was pulled up to the top row and took out third place in the Interbreed championship line-up. We took out most successful exhibitor and best displayed team 2-5 head for the Murray Greys as well.
This was a great accomplishment see our Champion below.
