The Interbreed Junior Champion Bull was awarded to the Limousin entry – Flemington Legend. The May 2015-drop bull was shown by Ian and Donna Robson, who manage the stud owned by Mount View Orchards, Batlow, NSW.

The bull was Reserve Junior Champion at the Royal Easter Show, Sydney, when it was only 10 months old.

Roughly six months later it went one better and weighed 756kg, and scanned 12mm rump, 8mm rib and 125sqcm EMA.

They have sold Canadian semen rights to the young bull and Mr Robson said at this stage, they plan to retain the May 2-15-drop son of Warrigal High Vision, in the stud.

The Robson family had a successful show with the five-head team taking out five first ribbons.

Patrick Halloran, Bush Park Limousins won Interbreed Reserve Senior Champion Female with his Limousin entry Mandayen Jill J2402.
