Sheep and Cattle Success
Despite the very wet start our Agricultural students were all smiles over the weekend as they enjoyed and participated in the Tamworth Show.
It was great to see our Sheep Team bounce back from a rough start to the year, where they lost their rams in a wild dog attack. The Sheep Team brought home several placings in the sheep and fleece judging, with Riley Bomford placed first in the meat sheep and merino judging.
Our Cattle Team also brought home the ribbons. Megan Seis won Champion Junior Judge and Riley Catts was Reserve Champion Junior Judge. With more than 400 competitors in that category, those results are fantastic for Calrossy and our Cattle Program. The success didn't end there, Jessica Catts was named Reserve Champion Parader and Cara Rudder and Georgia Stimson qualified for the F002 at Sydney Show Paraders. One of our girls, Lara de Jong, also had the privilege of leading the Champion led Steer, donated by Peter Reed. It was a big weekend and a great effort by more than 100 students involved in parading, stewarding, preparing and in support. Well done to everyone involved and the countdown is now on to the Sydney Easter Show.
