which scooped the Hereford prize pool at the 2007 Royal Show.

A yearling bull from Lake Station Herefords near Nelson, took out top honours in the Hereford ring at the 2007 Royal Show.

The young sire, Lake B107, exhibited by Rebecca McConochie, earnt a raft of the top Hereford prizes awarded by judge Rob Burrows of Beechwood Stud Culverden ably assisted by associate judge Colin McKenzie of the Achindrean Stud, Tuakau.

Judging took place between the squally showers of torrential rain and hail but Rob Burrows’ enthusiasm for the young Lake Station sire, wasn’t dampened by the atrocious conditions. He described the sire as “a rip-snorter.”

“He is an outstanding bull, a very good parader with strong bone and a strong head. He has a thick hind quarter so when you get in behind him you can really see the strength.”

“He’s also very good in the scrotum area and sheath.”

Rob also noted the talent exhibited by young Hereford herdsperson Ben Burgess, 14.

“Ben made a terrific job of leading the animals and he had travelled all the way from Whangarei.”

Ben, a promising handler, was placed third in the RAS Stock Judging junior class. The senior and junior classes were sponsored by Future Beef New Zealand and competitors were allocated points for their animal placement and the reasons they provided for their decisions.  He also participated in the Young Beef Breeders handlers and stock judging class.

Other highlights from the show included the Richon Stud of the Stokes family, Lees Valley and the Tywnham Stud of Ruth and Lloyd Higgins, Nelson dominating the female classes.

Hayden Cowan of Roselawn, Fairlie scooped the All Breeds Yearling Bull Title with Roselawn Style 923 and the Sidey and Ford families dominated in the two-year-old bull classes.

The Canterbury Hereford Club did themselves proud in the hospitality stakes for members and show visitors alike. A club dinner was held in the marquee, shared with NZ Performance Beef Breeders, on the showgrounds at the conclusion of the first day of the show. Despite the temperature which had plummeted during the day, spirits were high and 60 guests enjoyed the dry-aged Hereford Prime porterhouse that was served with plenty of positive comments flowing for the branded beef.
