Leopold steer wins gold in Sydney


Ian and Jill Coghlan have a long tradition of exhibiting winning steers in royal and regional carcase competitions, and continued their successes at this year’s Royal Easter Show in Sydney.
The Gerogery based Eurimbla Red Poll stud’s heavy-weight steer won the gold medal in the competition which involved 344 exhibits. To win a gold medal required a carcase score of at least 90 points out of 100 and to also score 15/15 for market specification and at least 37/40 for saleable meat yield and 37/45 for eating quality.

The steer’s sire, Eurimbla Leopold, had semen exported from Holbrook Breeders to Shadow Creek Farms in Canada.
