Ben and Annabelle Monie of Thornleigh Herefords, took six head of cattle to the show and came home with Senior and Grand Champion Hereford Bull (Thornleigh Legume L371), Reserve Senior Champion Bull (Thornleigh Legislator L379), Junior Champion Bull (Thornleigh Maxwell M210 (P)), Reserve Senior Champion Female (Thornleigh Snowflake L306), first in the Sire’s Progeny Group, first in the Breeders Group and first in the Pair of Bulls.

As a result the Monies were awarded Most Successful Exhibitor.

Ben Monie was absolutely delighted with the result.  “The Hereford competition was very strong in Brisbane with a lot of representation from Northern NSW. We were thrilled with the outcome particularly as we are offering the three prize winning bulls at our bull sale.
