CHAIRMAN of the prime cattle and lambs section for the Warwick Show Bill Gross is bracing for another great weekend.

With 100 head of cattle and 130 prime lambs about to arrive at the Warwick Showgrounds tomorrow morning, Mr Gross said numbers would be on par with last year.

"We'll see an excellent lot of cattle come through - some of the best in the country," he said.

He said despite the number of Royal shows surrounding the local show, it would not affect numbers or quality in the livestock sections.

"Not in the cattle or lambs anyway," Mr Gross said.

"We expect to see good prices for the lambs.

"Quality has improved a lot so they could go for a bit more than last year."

He said it was much the same story for the prime cattle.

"It should be a good market and while they were really dear last year, I think they'll remain quite dear this year," Mr Gross said.

"And hopefully we will be well supported by the local butchers and abattoirs."

Chris Lawlor, from Allora, will judge the lambs, and John Anstey, from Warwick Meats, will judge the prime cattle.

"My word, it will be a difficult job for the judges with the high standards," Mr Gross said.

Cattle judging gets moving at 9am tomorrow with presentations at 2.30pm and the sale at 3pm.

Lamb judging starts at 10am with a 1.30pm presentation and a 2pm sale.
