At the completion of judging, the four coveted interbreed awards were won by four different breeders and three breeds with the Simmental breed claiming bragging rights winning the two female awards.

However, third place couldn’t be split with a tie between entries from the Thompson family’s Venturon Charolais stud, Boyup Brook and the Tuckey’s family Mubarn Simmental stud, Pinjarra.
Rounding out the individual interbreed awards was seven mature cows with calves at foot vying for the interbreed senior female in another closely-fought contest with just two points separating the top three placings.

Two of the judges agreed the Simmental cow from the Bandeeka stud, Bandeeka Nimmy N2 and her heifer calf was their pick to see her get up for first place.
