ROGER Federer’s dominance is not only reserved for the court, but now in the show ring as well.
A Red Angus bull named after the tennis legend was awarded supreme interbreed exhibit of the Royal Melbourne Show on Monday.
GK Federer F23 was exhibited by Gavin Iseppi, GK Red Angus, Dalby, Queensland, and was the senior interbreed bull.
Judge Garry Noller, Toowoomba, Qld, said the Red Angus bull had “great presence”.
“The supreme exhibit has an impressive front end,” he said.
“His eye muscle for his age, just two years, made him stand out from the rest.
“He had that degree of finish that I would expect and look for in the Red Angus breed.”
Mr Isseppi said the win topped off a great year of showing for the stud.
“Our goals at the start of the year were to win grand champion bull at Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne this year,” he said.
GK Federer F23 was a member of the Hordern trophy winning pair at the Royal Sydney Show.
He was named interbreed bull at Brisbane and was a member of the interbreed pair at Brisbane too.
He also won grand champion bull at Rockhampton.
Mr Isseppi said the stud would now market the bull’s semen having already sold some at the show.
There were 177 exhibitors in the beef showing from across Victoria, NSW, Qld, South Australia and Tasmania.
