RSVP Droughtmasters has taken out top honours at this year’s Droughtmaster Futurity Show held at Gatton Showgrounds.
The heat was felt both inside and outside the show ring on Saturday with hot, muggy conditions prevailing across the region.
Despite the challenging environment, 12-month-old RSVP Nevada bull was crowned Grand Champion Exhibit of the Droughtmaster Futurity’s 2018 show.
RSVP stud manager Graham Brown said it was Nevada bull’s first time showing and will now head to compete at Beef 2018 in the Droughtmaster breed calf section.
“RSVP Nevada’s sire, Warrina Yalumba, has done a fantastic job in our stud herd and produced numinous high-quality bulls for us,” Mr Brown said.
“Nevada bull was 550kg about three or four weeks ago when we weighed him and he’s a good, early maturing calf with plenty of muscle.”
RSVP Nevada was also awarded the Champion Bull Calf during the day’s judging by Mac and Gayle Shann, Myall Springs, Collinsville.
It’s the third Grand Champion Exhibit win at the Droughtmaster Futurity for RSVP stud.
