Murray Grey Steer Success Story by Ben SpryDecember 12, 2022
The Steer in question was bred by Sentry Box Murray Greys (Bundarra,NSW).
A September 2021 drop calf.
Sire: Carlinga Louisville Slugger L108
Dam: Glenliam Farm Juggernaut daughter
We selected and prepared him for The Glen Innes Potential Show Steer Sale 2022, run by Colin Say & Co. He then proceeded to place 5th in the judging, had the 5th highest gross ($4,077.50), and had the 3rd highest $/kg ($17.50/kg). He was purchased by Calrossy Anglican School in Tamworth.
The Calrossy School team, who did a simply amazing job with this steer, brought him back to Glen Innes for the Colin Say & Co. Beef Extravaganza. The Beef extravaganza is becoming one of the richest Show steer/heifer competitions with over $30,000 in prizes and incentives.
Then the fun began as the steer began to shine in both the Led and Carcass classes.
Here is a wrap of how he did.
