South Australian stud Woonallee Simmentals, Furner, has backed up its Royal Adelaide Show performance by winning supreme beef breed exhibit, with a four year-old cow.

Peter Collins, Merridale Angus, Tennyson, spoke on behalf of the three-judge panel and said it was an unanimous decision to award the supreme exhibit to the cow.

The solid red Simmental cow had its second calf, a handy bull calf at-foot, at-foot.

Woonallee Charo H140 was exhibited by Tom and Lizzy Baker, Woonallee Simmentals, Furner, South Australia, and was from an imported embryo from Canada’s Lewis Farms.

The Bakers won all breeds champion bull at the Royal Adelaide Show earlier this month with Woonallee Ladykiller L15, which won reserve junior champion interbreed bull at Melbourne.
