Large animals strut stuff

FOR all those who love large livestock Saturday is the day to see the prize-winning stud cattle and sheep.

Stud cattle steward Pat Flynn said the 116 entries he received across all cattle classes meant this year's numbers remained on par with last.

"Numbers weren't has high as anticipated because everyone is preparing for the upcoming Beef Expo in Rockhampton," he said.

"The decline seems to be across the board though, with Toowoomba also receiving less numbers than expected."

New stud sheep steward, but veteran steward at the Brisbane Ekka Emma Thompson, said she had 94 entries across all sheep classes.

"Entrants are coming from all around the Southern Downs and as far as Woodenbong in New South Wales to promote their stud and exhibit the quality of their sheep," she said.

Both stewards thanked Warwick State High School for all its help and support.

Judging for the junior stud cattle and sheep will be held tomorrow at 3pm and 6.30pm respectively.

The remainder of the stud cattle will be judged on Saturday at 8am and the stud sheep at 8.30am.
