Ballarat Expo Highland Show (2017)

In conjunction with the Ballarat Lifestyle Expo where the Highlands are the only breed being shown.

(Saturday, 25th March, 2017)

Seven folds were represented at the Ballarat Rural Lifestyle Expo this year. Highlands were the only breed shown, and the feature display in the cattle shed. The Victorian Highland Breeders Group put on the show, and a BBQ lunch afterwards. There was incredible interest in the breed, both from a breeding perspective and also in the beef. As we know, Highlands have a significant advantage, not just in their looks, but importantly, in the quality of their beef (tenderness and flavour).

The judge, Gary Turnham, of Barregowa Cattle Co (breeding Red Angus & Australian Lowlines) was impressed with the lineup of cattle and had some considerable difficulty splitting some cattle. The results were spread around amongst the exhibitors with two black animals getting Grand Champion Female (Sona Pollach of Sea Crest) and Grand Champion Bull (Uallach Dubh 1st of Bairnsley).
