Best yet: Red Bend cattle team celebrates show success

Red Bend Catholic College's cattle team is celebrating their most successful Sydney Royal show yet.

This year, Red Bend's cattle team picked up the Reserve Grand Champion carcass, an equal second place in the Group of School carcasses as well as several placings in both the live and carcass categories.

Cattle Team Coordinator Susan Earl said the results for both the live and the carcass are the best that they have ever received.

The cattle team's steer, Midnight, picked up the Reserve Grand Champion carcass award and was just 0.5 points behind the overall Grand Champion Carcass.

Mrs Earl said they are very happy to see their cattle program is providing good results at the Sydney Royal and how hard the students worked to make the show successful.

Mrs Earl said they appreciate the support from Advanced Animal Nutrition and from local farmers who make a range of wonderful steers available to the school.

Cattle team member Tom Mitchell said competing at the Sydney Royal is a good experience and that they learn something new every time.

Cattle team member Olivia Twyford said it was an interesting to see the results of all of the work they put in and was a lot of fun working as a team.
