David and Prue Bondfield’s Palgrove, Russell Pastoral Company, Hamish and Mary McIntyre’s McIntyre Agriculture and Australian Agricultural Company were among the major winners of the 2020 JBS RNA Paddock to Palate competition, announced in Toowoomba on Friday night.
The annual Brisbane Show Paddock to Palate cattle competition provides a unique three-phased opportunity for cattle producers to benchmark their cattle against the best of the best in commercially relevant environment.
Cattle are measured on their performance in the feedlot, in the abattoir and in eating quality.
To win one overall championship in the premier competition is something many leading producers aspire to but never achieve.
The overall 70 day trade championship was won by Angus cross cattle from the Russell Pastoral Company, building on its strong performance in the 100 day export class last year.
Angus cross steers produced on Champion Station have consistently performed well in the years they have been entered into the competition, and have now added an overall championship to their achievements.
