Champion and Reserve Champion Carcases 2020 Wingham Beef Week go to Wallawong Angus
WALLAWONG Premium Beef has swept the Wingham Beef Week carcase competition, taking out both grand champion and reserve grand champion carcases for 2020.
It was a 602 kilogram (liveweight) Grey Angus steer scoring an impressive 95.97 points that took the top honours for annual entrants Lachlan and Kate James of Wallawong, Gunnedah, who are no strangers to success at Wingham having won a number of accolades in the past.
With a total point score of 95.97, the overall MG Angus cross winner received 19.5/20 for market specifications, 34.7/35 for saleable meat yield and 41.743 out of 45 for MSA eating quality.
He had a hot standard carcase weight (HSCW) of 322kg with fat measurements of 12 millimetres and 8mm at the P8 and rib sites, an eye muscle area (EMA) of 102 square centimetres and an AusMeat marble score of 4.
Reserve grand champion carcase went to a 93.996 point scoring Wallawong Angus steer that placed second in the heavyweight section.
Sired by a Wallawong Angus yearling bull the James’ sold at the AG-Grow Emerald bull sale in 2018 and out of Wallawong Anthea L20, the 19-month-old steer had a liveweight of 582kg.
He had a HSCW of 317kg, and measured 15mm and 10mm at the P8 and rib fat sites, 98 sq cm EMA and an AusMeat marble score of 5.
This win backs up a very successful run for the James’ who had the top three carcases of the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza in 2019, and more recently a class win in the Colin Say and Co Carcase Competition.
“We are confident about the genetics in our herd, and we are willing to back them every day of week to be in top one per cent of the industry,” he said.
“This is evident by having the top three carcases in the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza in October (2019), a class win in the recent Colin Say and Co carcase competition and now the top two in the Wingham Beef Week competition … all of which were sired by five different bulls.”

Wallawong Angus Clean Sweep Export Feedlot Challenge
Wallawong Angus cattle proved very successful again at the RAS Beef Challenge Awards Night, after the feedlot challenge that was held at Wilga Feedlot, Bellata in North West NSW.
The RAS Beef Challenge had seedstock and commercial entrants from not only local producers but producers from various parts of Australia. The event judges pens of steers and heifers that are entered in 70 days on feed domestic class or 100 on feed export class, as well as individual beasts from each category.
There were excellent results across the board, with Wallawong cattle (entered as James Family Agriculture) faring well amongst some very stiff competition.
In the Export categories, James Family Agriculture took out a clean sweep of the awards, with Champion team and Reserve Champion Team going to two pens of our Angus steers.
We also took home Reserve Champion Individual with an Angus steer and achieved two Silver Medals and a Bronze Medal for Carcase Quality for the three teams that were entered.
Angus Stud History
In a natural expansion of our business, Wallawong Angus was founded with the purchase of 34 PTIC cows in 2015 from Woodbourn Angus Tasmania along with the $18,000 sire Landfall Modest F72. The Woodbourn cows were in calf to F72 or the $30,000 sale topper Koojan Hills Africa G8. Subsequent AI programs have included Ayrvale Bartel E7, Dunoon Evident E614 and Sitz Upward 307R. Further cow and bull purchases have been made from Kansas Angus, Stoney Point Angus SA and Dance Angus NSW with the first Wallawong Angus bulls being successfully sold in 2017.
Kansas Judd L76
Judd was purchased as the foundation sire for the herd. He was an impressive 8 month old calf when purchased at the Kansas dispersal for $11,500. He was selected for his outstanding growth, depth, muscularity and style. His dam is a high quality female displaying an sound udder, extra volume and sleek coat when sold for $9500 at the Kansas dispersal.
Judd L76 was accepted into the Angus Australia Sire Benchmarking program, Cohort 7. Judd has been used to join mature females after AI and we eagerly await his calves in late 2017.
Purchase of Stoney Point Xtra Focussed E159 as ET Donor Female
On the look out for high quality donor females, we ventured to the Stoney Point Autumn calving dispersal in South Australia. We were very happy to select and purchase E159 as a foundation donor female.
Selected for her exceptional depth and volume, E159’s sleek coat and solid performance data were added benefits. E159 will be flushed in late 2017 to the $85,000 sire Nampara Liberty L21 with resulting embryos implanted as part of our herd expansion program.
