Australian Lowlines again have made their presence felt in the 2010 Royal Brisbane Show with their led steer win and numerous placings in the carcass competition. Once again Vitulus genetics have a major impact on the results.
A Lowline/Murray Grey cross steer won the Grand Champion led steer out of 330 entries. He was Champion middleweight steer and then went onto to win Grand Champion Led Steer. Exhibited by the Riehl family and Pittsworth State High School.
This steer was sired by Lik Lik Blinky who was sired by Vitulus Gambler out of Vitulus Xquisite.
In the carcass section a lowline/limousin cross steer won the middleweight class 4 (401-430kg) . This steer then went onto to win Champion middleweight steer exhibited by Tanview. In second place, in the same class, was a Vitulus lowline/limo/Murray Grey steer.
In Class 5 (431-460kg) the Grand Champion Led Steer came second in his class as well.
Congratulations to the Riehl family, Pittsworth State High School, Tanview Lowlines as well.
