Perth Royal Show 2021

The Kelmscott Senior High School Show Cattle Team attended the Royal Show with 9 Square Meater animals. These were sold to Kelmscott SHS by Maureen Giglia of Meta Park Stud, Bridgetown. The school has chosen to go with Square Meater stock for the past few years because of the quiet nature and feed efficiency of this breed. Our generally inexperienced students build their confidence working with such calm animals.

Stock are utilised with Agriculture classes ranging from Year 7 to Year 12. The stock are used throughout the school year to train student handlers in animal husbandry and, as the show season approaches, some basic ring-craft. In preparation for the Royal Show, the stock are worked weekly by potential Show Cattle Team partici-pants. At the Show, the stock were used in the Junior Handlers Competition and were judged as part of the Hoof & Hook competition. Four of our Square Meater steers took places in the top six of the Medium Weight Carcase Competition.
