A power-packed red bull from the junior division stormed home to take the best exhbit sash at this year's Brahman judging.
Junction Vale Hustler, 19 months, overcame some serious competition from the senior and grand champion female, Mogul Miss Mu Dianne, exhibited with a classy heifer calf.
However, judge, Brett Kirk, Hazelton Brahmans, Middlemount, Qld, said the bull was a more complete package, his attributes outweighed his faults, and he was polled, "which is important in our breed today".
Hustler was by Bremer Vale High Voltage and from Bremer Vale Pearls and was exhibited by Charles Cattle Company, Casino.
The final decision though wasn't easy, according to Mr Kirk who added that the cow had the potential to breed bulls like the bul lhe selected as the breed's best exhibit.

She beat the junior female, Mogul Miss YV Lindelu, a Yenda V 412 dauhter from Mogul Miss LBH Lindelu, exhibited by Mogul.
Mr Kirk described Miss YV Lindelu as very feminine with a lot of breed character - "strong on top and just a good unit".
