Beef 2021

Droughtmaster proudly exhibited at Beef 2021 in both Stud and Commercial sections. Droughtmaster presented the single largest breed display at BEEF Australia, with 169 head nominated for the Stud Competition from 41 studs in Queensland and NSW. 

The results in the Commercial and Stud Competitions were fantastic, and we even came home with the Battle of the Breeds Tug-o-War Trophy, taking victory over Team Brangus.   

Congratulations to all exhibitors and competitors in the Stud and Commercial Competitions.   Results for both events can be found here and here
