There were only eight Maine Anjou paraded before judge Lester Job, Moombi Shorthorns, Cumnock but the standard was very high with the senior champion bull going on to be awarded best exhibit for the breed.

Uandi Colossus, bred and shown by Roger French, Unandi, East Orange had been successful in the over 20 and not over 30 months class.

He was considered by Mr Job to be a free moving bull for such a big animal.

"I certainly wouldn't want him to be any bigger," he said.

"He has good fat cover, a soft skin and nice muscle pattern."

The reserve senior champion bull Uandi Ebony Lad was also exhibited by Roger French.

The junior champion bull Uandi Premier Class exhibited by Roger French had won the nine and not over 14 months class ahead of the reserve junior champion Wattle Grove Echo's Attraction shown by Scott Costello and successful in the over 14 and not over 20 months class.

"He is a very free and easy moving bull with a good topline," Mr Job said.

The junior female championship was awarded to Uandi Erudi Steff, successful in the nine and not over 14 months class.

Second in that class was Uandi LP Adelaide and she took the reserve junior championship.

Mr Job thought the junior champion female to have more versatility in the real world.

"She has a nice muscle pattern, good bone and is freer in her movement."

Senior champion female was Wattle Grove Charlotte, exhibited by Scott Costello.

She had won the over 30 months class and was thought by Mr Job to be a very classy cow with a great calf.

"She is structurally correct with a nice udder and holds herself well," he said.

The senior champion female was judged grand champion female and Mr Job said it was very hard to put a junior over the top of such a very good older cow with an impressive calf.
