With the Sydney Royal Show fast approaching, a school is gearing up for its major debut with six pupils, a school steer and two limo heifers attending the event this weekend. Manning Valley Anglican College (MVAC), Taree has entered the show scene and started winning major awards at the two shows they have attended so far. MVAC entered the ring for the first time at the Wallamba Show on March 19 where they received the school’s overall champion team, the grand champion steer and four of MVAC’s students qualifying for the final parader competition of State F002 at the Sydney Royal Show. The second show was Wingham March 25-27, where the students took eight cattle and won the title of champion parader, champion and reserve champion shepherd, and champion and reserve steer champion. The school received the Garren Park Genetics steer as part of the Virtual Fair of the Association des Jeunes du Limousin. These were three students submitting an application and going through an interview process which resulted in them being donated the limo steer ‘Snoopy’.

After the recent floods and students falling ill with COVID-19, Ms Fell said they were trying to prepare management well. “We thought we’d put our toes in the water and for next year, who knows, we might even show off some of the animals we’ve raised on school property,” she said. “The students are very excited. They’re just typical country kids, so going to Sydney is really great.” Ms Fell said the ox was to be paraded by Year 8 students, with all proceeds from the auction being plowed back into the school. The two limo heifers at the show with MVAC are Crimson Park Congeniality and Myers Miss Fine R12, both owned by Victoria Lee, Crimson Park Livestock, Taree. Did you know?
