Calrossy the most successful Beef Cattle Exhibitor at the Barraba Show

After two months preparing animals and developing cattle handing and show preparation skills, 35 very keen Calrossy Cattle Team members undertook final preparation and showing at the Barraba Show last Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7.  It was a very exciting moment for all participating when Calrossy Anglican School was awarded the Most Successful Beef Cattle Exhibitor at Barraba Show 2021 with the 14 head of Kamilaroi shorthorns and one limousin steer the students professionally exhibited. 

Calrossy students also received individual awards in both the Junior Judging and Paraders competitions. A highlight was when Mitchell Taylor was sashed Champion Parader after competing against approximately 40 other competitors under 25 years of age. Congratulations also goes to Caitlin Scanlon, who selected the Crowds Popular Choice award for the bull she exhibited at the show, Kamilaroi Zennon. Our three exceptional Agriculture Leaders, Emily Taylor, Catilin Scanlon and Hannah Thurn, need special mention for their continued assistance and encouragement of other students; many who were participating at a regional cattle show for the very first time. Judges Wendy and Ben Maine from Texas NSW commented on the exceptional standard and professionalism shown by the Calrossy students throughout the Show. 

We would like to extend a special thank you to all our wonderful Calrossy parents and families who came along over the two days and joined the Calrossy Gallery to support our students. Thank you to the parents that transported students back and forward to school or the Showground and for the 5.30 am start drop offs also! 

A HUGE thank you goes to Matt and Tammy Walker and the Barraba Show Cattle Committee for holding such a well organised and welcoming event! We look forward to returning to the Barraba Show next year, hopefully with the Sheep Team as well. Next week the Cattle and Sheep Teams will travel north to the Walcha Show. A full gallery of photos is available on the HUB soon.
