Casablanca Lowlines win beef cattle championships in both New
Barbary Coast, Supreme Champion All Breeds Beef Bull at 16
At just 16 months, Casablanca Barbary Coast cleaned up Angus,
Herefords, Belgian Blues and all other breeds to become Supreme
Champion All Breeds Beef Bull at the 86th Kumeu Show. We've won
at international level since then, including the Sydney Royal
Show and the NSW Beef Spectacular,and also at the New Zealand Royal Show, but Barbary Coast's Kumeu
performance is the one we will always remember. Barbary Coast was
handled at Kumeu by veteran Kiwi dairy farmer, Noel Yearbury.
Casablanca heifer Allambie Perfect Princess (seen below as a
weaner handled by six-year-old Charlie Jarvis)won Junior Champion
Lowline Female at the New South Wales Beef Spectacular 2008 and
has since won first, second and Reserve Champion Senior Female at
the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
In the general classes at the Sydney Easter Show 2008 where she
won two minor ribbons, Perfect Princess was handled by Australian
2008 Lowline Ambassador to the US, Emma Germany, and in the
Heifer Show by Thomas Ritchie. Handled by Thomas, she has since
won her adult female class at the 2009 Sydney Easter Show where
she was also Reserve Champion Senior Female and was second in her
class at the 2010 Sydney Royal show where Australian Lowlines
were the featured breed. See below.
In coming second in this huge event, Perfect Princess (with her
week old calf Casablanca Sam at foot) beat 14 top cows from the
very best Australian studs and was beaten only by Margo Hayes'
outstanding Vitulus entry, Chicks Rule. Perfect Princess' 2009
calf, Casablanca Jebel Musa, was placed fourth in the Under 12
month Bull class at the same show. Perfect Princess was bred by the late Tammy Breuer at
Allambie Stud, Dubbo
and was named by 2007 US Lowline junior ambassador to Australia,
Brittney Hurd, while staying with Tammy at Allambie.

TALKING ABOUT BEEF COMPETITIONS...
Wellington (NSW) High School's pure-bred Australian Lowline
, didn't get a look-in at the "on hoof"classes at
the Quirindi Prime Stock Expo. Then came the carcass judging.
Allambie Apocalypse's 87.567 score on the ABCAS evaluation system
was so good it would have won the light weight section at the
Sydney Royal Show. At Quirindi, he beat all light weights and was
3rd overall when the heavy weights were included. Australian
Lowlines show outstanding performance in "on the hook" contests
because they really are bred for better beef.
