Earlier this year we were approached by Murray and Jodie Weller, of Toowoomba, who were interested in purchasing a stud Hereford heifer for their son’s Riley and Drew. After a big weekend of handling and discussion between Murray, Riley and Drew they came to a decision and the two boys purchased their first stud heifer Glenwarrah Lass N114.  They are our future in the Hereford breeding game and we were delighted to help the two boys start their stud. Recently, Drew Weller attended the 2018 Hereford QLD Annual Youth Show at Pittsworth.  The weekend includes instruction on handling cattle and general show preparation.  Saturday was filled with informative talks, including sessions run by Hayley Robinson from MLA, Luke Goldthorpe from Coopers Animal Health, Jane Lowe from Queensland Country Life, and Peter Atkinson of Allora Veterinary practice. The weekend concluded on the Sunday with a competition between the 59 competitors with classes including beast handling and age classes for the cattle.  Drew had a great time with his heifer winning the Grand Champion Parader.  In the cattle classes Drew, with his heifer Glenwarrah Lass N114, won both Grand Champion Heifer and Supreme Animal. Congratulations to the Weller Boys and Good Luck at Brisbane EKKA with you heifer.
