8th Annual Texas Longhorns Australia National Show 2021

2021 National Show Results

After setting a date twice for the 2021 National Show to be held at Scone the committee had to concede defeat due to all the covid19 pandemic restrictions and once again take the show to an online format.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our wonderful Judge Nicole Hartwig, we know that we did not set you an easy task, but you rose to the challenge and helped us pull off the 8th annual National Texas Longhorn Show. Things can only get bigger and better from here and we look forward to being all back together for the show in 2022.

We also need to give a massive thank you to the 2021 Show Sponsors, your support is truly appreciated. Thank you to the show coordinators, Rodney & Adelaide Cooper, your unwavering dedication is admirable. It would be remiss of me to forget to thank the show competitors! With out you there is no show! Thank you to each and every one of you for nominating and for taking the time to prepare your cattle, it is magnificent to see the Texas Longhorn breed showcased so elegantly. You are all winners for being brave enough to have a go!

Grand Champion Bull of the Show went to 14 month old “Speargrass Star Witness” owned by Nicole & Keith Burns from Speargrass Longhorns.

Sunday saw 30 quality longhorns go under the hammer when Sam Plevey from Purtle Plevey Agencies commenced the auction at 10.30 am. The highest priced animal was Speargrass Star Witness, a striking 14 months old bull, who was purchased by Paul & Marie Klante form Girilambone.
