See all the champions from the beef cattle competition at the Royal Adelaide Show.


The Royal Adelaide Show beef champions have all been announced.

Above is a gallery of each of the champions at the show this year.

The Angus breed made a clean sweep of the interbreed judging after a successful feature breed showing.

It was the Fuller family, Pine Creek stud, Cowra, NSW, which had the midas touch with their exceptional team featured in all five interbreed class wins. They also had the champion interbreed sire's progeny group and the supreme exhibit in the Angus ring.

Kerlson Pines Poll Hereford stud, Keith, achieved a clean sweep of the Hereford judging once again, following on from last year's success.

It was the youngest exhibit in the Simmental ring, an 11-month-old heifer from Tom and Lizzy Baker's Furner stud, Woonallee Upgrade P391, that was named supreme at the Royal Adelaide Show.

The youngest female exhibit to enter the ring was sashed supreme in the Highland judging this year.

In the Santa Gertrudis ring the Fogden family's Nangaringa stud at Loxton took the supreme.

The supreme exhibit in this year's Shorthorn judging entered the ring in the very first class, catching the eye of judge Trent Johnstone, Trojan Shorthorns, Lyndhurst, NSW, from the get-go.

A junior bull that was "chock full of meat" and expected to have "a lot of influence over females", according to judge Tom Wilding-Davies, was worthy of the supreme title in the Red Angus judging.

Venturon Livestock returned to the Royal Adelaide Show for the second year, and it was certainly worth making the trek from Boyup Brook, WA, with the team having one of its best results yet in the Charolais ring.

For judge Trent Johnstone, Trojon Shorthorns, Lyndhurst, NSW, it nearly took a "toss of a coin" to pick his supreme Murray Grey exhibit.

A "stylish and modern" senior heifer from Stephen and Robyn Vivian, Knockando, Cowirra, was the standout Belted Galloway in a small, but quality field of entries at the Royal Adelaide.

A bull that "means business" has taken out the grand champion title in the Square Meater judging under Qld-based judge Paul Forman, Oakwood Limosins, Bundaberg.

Limousin grand champion bull honours went to Aruma Mr Magic, who measures 132 square centimetres in the eye muscle area and 39 and 18mm in the rump and rib fat.

Meanwhile, interstate judge Paul Forman, Bundaberg, commended the female line-up from Knockando Beef Cattle, Cowirra, in the Brahman judging for its evenness and suitability for the beef industry.

But it was sixteen-month-old Knockando Baby Ruby that was earlier sashed junior champion female, that caught the judges eye and was sashed grand champion female.

Victorians returning to Adelaide after the Speckle Park's successful feature showing last year took out most of the broadribbons at this year's event.

The junior beef parading competition came down to a final walk around the cattle ring between the Fogden sisters to determine who would take out the champion parader title.

Teamwork paid off for 17-year-old Jacqui Palk, Eden Valley, who won the beef herdsperson with a team of three Square Meaters from her family's Willows Rest Square Meaters stud.

Angus Llewellyn trusted his instincts in the state beef young judges competition at the Royal Adelaide Show, which proved to be effective for the 17-old from Keith, who was crowned champion of the senior class.
