Rochester farmer Brett Young and his Poll Hereford, Grover, prepare for Beef Week.January 31, 2013 4:29am
Two cattle farmers in the Rochester district will be showing off their best animals for Beef Week next week.
Brett Young said he was well-prepared this year with his Hereford and Poll Hereford cattle.
The Young family have been breeding cattle for 55 years and the last 35 were at his property on the Northern Hwy, south of Rochester.
He stopped entering competitions during the drought but said he was now proud to display the cattle which had attractive attributes to judges.
In 2009 his Horned Hereford, SVY Colarado, won the reserve junior championship at the Wodonga Show and Sale, which sold for $14,000.
This year he was showing a Poll Hereford, Grover, as a good example of the type of stock he breeds.
The 17-month-old animal weighs 840kg and is fed on hay and locally produced grains.
The farm will be open for anyone interested in viewing the animals on February 1, when they will be judged by the experts.
The second farm in the Rochester region to take part in Beef Week is Merridale Angus in Tennyson.
Merridale will have sale and show bulls, elite donors, and herd females and calves on display and visits are welcome on February 1.
