While most students of the College have been putting their feet up and relaxing over the past holiday, the Agricultural scholars have put in some extremely long days at their biggest event of the year, The Royal Agricultural Societies Melbourne Show. Being a Royal show, it comes with the highest level of competition in the country with many local and interstate competitors. The stock quality must be higher and the overall presentation of the animals and competitors moves to another level, to that of a standard parade show.
Recognizing what an elite event this is, our Scholars really stepped up for the occasion. The presentation of themselves, their animal display areas and of course their animals was as good if not better than the rest of the competitors and the results and comments we received were very positive. Their representation of Salesian College Sunbury was amazing and our acknowledgement as a top Agricultural school further enforced by the results.
So grab yourselves a cuppa as there is a long list of credits to go through:
Student sheep judging competition:
Stud cattle competition
Stud Handlers competition
Simmental Awards for Stud cattle
Steer Hoof and Hook Competition
Steer Handlers competition
Steer Carcass competition:
This is an amazing achievement from all our scholars, particularly our mentors for keeping everything on track and teaching their teams the finer art of showing.
A special thank you to our parent supervisors, again your help and enthusiasm for these events allows us to have them conducted well.
This will be a pretty hard result to emulate or beat next year, however we have already found some gaps in our preparation that once filled should put us in a great position to elevate our results and prove what a great agricultural program we have.
