BECKANHAM Limousins made headlines again at the Royal Melbourne Show beef carcass competition over the weekend, breeding the grand champion steer.
Beckanham Limousin principals Bruce and Sue Griffiths, with the grand champion steer, handled by Nicky Williamson, Finley High School.
This comes just weeks after they also bred the champion heavy export steer at the Royal Adelaide Show.
The steer was exhibited by the excited Finley High School show team, and went on to be sold in the ALPA Young Auctioneers competition.
Weighing 385 kilograms, the steer was first awarded champion medium domestic steer, and judge Craig Grapes, Triple M Red Angus, NSW, said he ticked all the boxes.
"The champion steer wasn't too extreme, and ticked all the boxes when it came to fat cover, EMA (eye muscle area) and eveness," he said.
"When I put my hands on him he was also a nice soft steer, which will show when they take his hide off."
