The Urquhart Perpetual Trophy for supreme beef exhibit is heading over the border after Queensland's Price family of Moongool Charolais claimed the prestigious award in Sydney on Monday afternoon.
Moongool Fanmail 8 and her calf, Moongool Fanmail 10, took out the supreme award ahead of the Red Angus interbreed bull champion, Redgums Willy from the Downey family, Yambuna, Victoria.
Judges Ian Galloway, Roma, Queensland, Ben Mayne, Warialda, Guy Lord, Walcha, were full of praise for the four-year-old and her eight-month-old heifer calf who Mr Lord said exuded femininity.
"She is beautifully elegant through the front through the neck and shoulder and she is obviously doing a great job on that calf and when we look at the udder and teat placement on that cow, I think they are almost perfect," he said.
The Charolais breed hasn't won the Urquhart Perpetual Trophy since 2013 with Palgrove Gallivant from the Bondfield family, Dalveen, Queensland.
Last year the Price family claimed the interbreed female title at Beef 2018 and the interbreed People's Choice at the Royal Queensland Show, but it was the first time they had claimed the Urquhart trophy after four years of competition in Sydney.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would come away with those wins, especially in an Angus feature year," stud principal Ivan Price said.
The winning female was named the grand champion Charolais at Sydney last year and was a part of Moongool's winning team in the interbreed breeder's group.
This year Moongool combined with the Franco family, Caloona Park, Tamworth, to win the Hordern Perpetual Trophy for champion pair.
The Angus breed were boosted to the top title of interbreed breeder's group with a team from Tattykeel Angus, Oberon.
Angus also claimed the interbreed heifer competition with the junior champion female, Yamba Keen N153 from Brian Powell, Yamba Angus, Orange.
