Young stockmen bring home the ribbons
KIDS were the word at Allora Show over the weekend, with brothers Lachlan and Riley (pictured on the front) Bacon taking the lead in the cattle judging.
Riley, 9, spent Saturday leading his family heifers, saying it wasn't too much trouble braving the heat to take part in his favourite past time.
"I'm just leading a few heifer here at the show today," he said.
"We've done a few shows already.
"We were out at Stanthorpe last weekend, and my heifer got fourth there.
"It was her first show, so I think that's pretty good."
The St Mary's student was leading the Hereford cattle alongside his older brother, who had a few more years experience in the game.
Lachlan, 12, said although he was at high school, he still had time to help out with the family's Hereford stud at Freestone.
"I don't mind coming out to the shows," he said.
"I'm at Assumption College, but I think I'll probably keep doing this long after I finish school."
