2016 Stock and Land Beef Week - RASV Heifer Challenge

Boonaroo Angus, Corndale Victoria was named the 2016 RASV Heifer Challenge as part of Stock & Land Beef Week, in the fifth year of the competition.

As one of the many important programs RASV conducts throughout the year to highlight quality production in agrifood and fibre, the Heifer Challenge recognises excellence in herd replacement females in seed stock operation throughout Victoria and into NSW.

Experienced cattle judge Bob Dent, who has previously presided over competitions in USA, NZ and Brazil as well as all mainland states of Australia, awarded the prestigious honour and $3000 cash prize to the Angus stud, after almost two weeks of judging herds from close to 50 properties across Victoria and NSW from January 27-February 4. 

Five of the ten 2016 finalists were also named in the top ten in 2015, including Reserve Champion Eloora Shorthorns, of Bulart, who received a $1500 cash prize as part of presentations during the Beef Week Celebratory Dinner in Bendigo on February 5.

Stock and Land Beef Week, is an integral opportunity for beef producers to showcase, market and develop their breeding operation, as well as share experiences and knowledge with fellow industry participants.
