Cattle Team

The school has a Limousin and Hereford stud. Students have an opportunity from Term 3 Year 8 to be involved in the running and exhibition of cattle from both of these studs. They will also be involved in preparing steers for local shows in Blayney and Bathurst and for the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The program involves breaking in, feeding, grooming and exhibiting cattle at Bathurst and Blayney Shows.

The steers will then be taken to the Royal Easter Show to compete in the Hoof and Hook Competition. Cattle Team Training takes place on Monday and Wednesday mornings. Students are also placed on a feeding roster for each week and during the school holidays.

Students have opportunities to mentor and co-mentor other students in this program which helps to foster leadership, presentation and relationship building skills as well as teamwork and social skills.

The costs associated with the program include cattle show team uniforms, excursion and accommodation costs and cattle feed costs which are added to your College account.

Royal Bathurst Show 2019

Young Rural Achievers 2020
Prior to the cancellations of all shows our Cattle Team members participated in the 2020 Young Rural Achievers Competition, linked to Bathurst Royal Show. The students are required to submit a letter, resume and are involved in a panel interview about Agricultural issues and the role they play in our rural community.
Many students enter this competition and our students have achieved amazing results against other schools in the Central West.
Congratulations to all students for the wonderful job they did in all areas of this competition. I would like to thank all students and in particular our older students who provided beautiful support and leadership to our younger and first time students during this process.
