Supreme sash to Liberty bull

The West Australian

Toodyay stud Liberty Charolais has won the supreme cattle exhibit ribbon at Wagin Woolorama for its 1074kg Charolais bull.

A month shy of turning two, Liberty Just Ramblin Along impressed Eastern States judges Anthony Hurst and Peter Falls, who were unanimous in their decision.

The multibreed champion bull, earlier judged champion and grand champion Charolais, was chosen as the supreme over the champion female Charolais and multibreed champion female entry, Quicksilver Fashion F35.

Liberty Charolais stud principal Kevin Yost said it was the bull's first competition at Wagin.

The bull was interbreed champion at last year's Perth Royal Show.

Mr Yost said the easy-moving bull would soon head to Sydney to be shown and promoted for semen sales, before being used as a stud sire on Liberty's Toodyay property.

During the Charolais judging Mr Hurst described the bull as balanced with tremendous length and muscling.

"He's got that natural softness, is very structurally correct and is a bull that is going to have a big industry future," he said.

In February the bull's paternal brother topped the WA Charolais Bull Sale in Bruswick, selling for $21,000.

Mr Hurst said the multibreed champion female was a tremendous volume cow, doing a fantastic job with its calf. "She is certainly what the industry is looking for with muscle pattern and natural do-ability," he said.

More than 100 cattle were judged leading up to the multibreed competition, including Murray Greys, specialty breeds and European, British and Bos Indicus types.

Liberty Charolais also won the pair of bulls, pair of females and sire progeny group of three classes.
