Elmore Field Days - 2010

Tuesday started the three day event with hot weather, the cattle settled into their new surroundings. As a crowd stopper the first pen had Kuloomba's 4.4yo Bull.  His size 1200kg slowed the crowds as they passed. On the other side was Riverslea's cow & calf,  showing their Melbourne show ribbons. In the next row behind was Restdown's 14mth bull and a steer that was earmarked for human consumption. On the otherside was Lincoln Park with heifers and a young bull that was being prepared for possible showing. In the third pen showing their Melbourne show ribbons was Balagold's bull 13mths and weighing in 570kg.

After a nights rain, Wednesday started off pleasent but the afternoon's weather did deteriorate with thunder. The crowds were enquiring about Santa stock availability, temperment and features such as resistance from pink eye and bloat which made the breed more desirable. The growth rate display was a good example with the mature bull starting life as a small calf.

Thursday's cloudy skies bought in more people to the site; help was appreciated from members of the Southern Santa Gertrudis Breeders group to man the site as information bags were eagerly sought.
