THE Breakfast Creek Hotel is renowned for serving the very best steak in Brisbane but it's hasn't had a live steer on the grounds for a number of years.
Billy Goetsch, with Hot Dog, the $25,000 Ekka champion prime cattle steer. Sitting on the ledge are Sam Gullo, Breakfast Creek Hotel, Michael Nolan, Nolan Meats, Gympie, Geoff Atkinson, A La Carte Meats, Terry Nolan, Nolan Meats, Gympie, Darren Perkins, George and Fuhrmann, Queensland Country Life's Stan Wallace, and Neil Goetsch, Goetsch and Son, Kalbar.
That all changed yesterday when the grand champion prime cattle steer from the 2012 Ekka, Hot Dog, went under the hammer to raise money for prostate cancer.
The 750kg steer sold for $25,000 to the ALH Group.
Hot Dog was originally purchased by the hotel, Nolan Meats and A la Carte Meats, and since the Ekka, the quiet-natured Limousin-cross, has been fed only the very best pastures.
Hotel Manger Sam Gullo said the Brekky Creek encouraged people to bid enthusiastically at the auction all in the name of charity.
“We are a great supporter of prostate cancer research in Queensland and we look forward to hosting this charity event while showcasing some of the best beef in Queensland.”
