THE grand champion ribbons in the Australian Lowline ring went south of the border today to first-time Beef Australia exhibitors.

Vicki Gilbert, Rotherwood Stud, Cann River, Victoria, and her nephew Matt Cooney, Cann Valley Stud, Cann River, took home the grand champion male and female titles respectively.

Judge Renee Rutherford, Redbank, Rockhampton, was impressed with the consistency of the animals on show, and considered them to be a “great representation” of the Australian Lowline breed.
