Stiff wins Champion Prime Beast
EVEN with all the Angus beef craze Warren Stiff can’t go past a Limousin cross beast, which definitely paid off for him in the Prime Beef competition yesterday.
He took out the Grand Champion Prime Beast of Show at the Warwick Show yesterday in a very elite field.
“It is very pleasing we have bred this for our Lyons Street Butchery,” Mr Stiff said.
“We have been quite happy with our quality.
“We felt we had good beef and it was nice to know they’ve done well today.”
Prime Cattle, Sheep and Lambs chairman Bill Gross said the numbers in the Prime Beef competition were similar to last year.
“It has been excellent I am very pleased with it,” Mr Gross said.
He said the Champion best was of very good muscle with great yielding meat.
Meanwhile, judge Neil Gotch said the standard of cattle was equal to what he had seen of cattle at the Brisbane Exhibition.
