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.
