Braford Youth Thrive at Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment School
On the 24, 25, 26th of September 2013 I attended the Tocal Beef Cattle Assessment School run by the Angus Society. I was generously sponsored by the Australian Braford Society NSW Branch. I soon found out that I was one of the youngest cattle enthusiasts, within the beef industry, attending the school. Over the 3 days of intense attention to detail, over 40 classes of cattle were judged from prime steers, feeder cattle, replacement heifers, the cow herd cull, selecting and buying bulls with and without EBV’s and the attention to detail on animal structure.
