Cattle Club on show
Our College Cattle Club had another successful year working once again with local cattle farmer Lawson Camm from Cambil Brahmans at Mt Julian. The purpose of Cattle Club is to teach students how to break in cattle ready to handle and lead at the local agricultural shows. Through this process our students start with cattle that struggle to be close to humans through being hand-led and paraded. After weeks of preparing the cattle, students then assist Lawson to show his cattle at two of our local shows, Pioneer Valley Show and Show Whitsunday, in the stud cattle section. Our students are very lucky to be able to lead in both the stud sections and junior competitions.
Our students represented our College in two age groups with Year 12 students Casey Lade, Peta McMahon-Neal, Tegan Ganter and Year 11 student Tristan Sainbury working in the 16-21 age group and Pieper Van Muen, Pippa Titley and Andie Stevens working in the Under 13’s age group. The results for the shows are as follows:
Casey Lade, Peta McMahon-Neal, Tegan Ganter, Tristan Sainbury, Pieper Van Muen, Andie Stevens, and Pippa Titley all competed with some pleasing results:
Peta - 3rd in parading
Casey - 2nd in parading
Tristan - 5th in parading

All our students did a wonderful job at representing our College both at Cattle Club sessions and at public events. It was great to have new members join the club this year and see them learn and improve throughout the 2022 season.
