"Mini Minah Libby"

Revival in interest in cattle at 2006 Show
Lithgow Mercury

'The stud section of cattle at Lithgow show had a great turn up with some 34 head of cattle from both small and large breeds competing.

Quality representatives from a variety of breeds from the small Low Lines, Dexters and Highlanders to the somewhat larger Simmentals, Limosins, Charolais and Fleckvieh were on display.

The overall Grand Champion was taken out by Saun Jenkins from Rydal with his Charolais bull "Violet Hills Zambo" WHICH also won the Lithgow Council Award for Supreme Exhibit.

The Xstrata Coal award for Champion Small Breed was won by Peter Wakeling from Mudgee with his Dexter cow "Mini Minah Libby".

The show ring was somewhat crowded when the class of 'a pair of heifers' was judged with eight pairs, 16 animals being judged at the same time.

It was a great display.'
