Australian Gelbvieh Cattle Association

EKKA 2023 Results

7th September 2023

A very strong line of Gelbvieh cattle at the Brisbane Ekka this year with 21 head from 6 exhibitors. The judge was David Bondfield, who is from the infamous Palgrove stud and has judged around the world. He commented on what a strong line up of Gelbvieh cattle and he had been admiring the breed for a while. 

The Ribbons were shared around evenly showing how even the cattle all really were. A good crowd was at ring side and watching live from around the world. Clyde Johnson from the Norolle Gelbvieh stud presented his award for most successful exhibitor to Chris Braithwaite.
