Swan Hill had a very successful showing at the 2012 Ekka, coming home with 6 blue ribbons across both female and male classes.

The show bulls will be offered for sale at the Annual On Property Bull Sale on the 15th of October.

In the junior female classes Swan Hill Samia won the 14 and under 16 month class and Swan Hill Sylvia won the 16 and under 18 months class.  Swan Hill 1604 who had a large heifer calf at foot came fourth in the large 30 and under 48 months class.

Two junior bulls won ribbons, Swan Hill Sheridan a first place in the 14 and under 16 months class and Ronan a sixth place in the 18 and under 20 months class. In the senior bull classes Royal won first place in the 20 and under 21 months, Ridley a first in the 21 and under 22, and Swan Hill 2087 in the 27 and under 30 month classes. The judge, Rob Hart from NSW commented on the ability of these bulls to walk, their even fat coverage, and excellent weight for age.

Swan Hill also did well in the groups classes including fifth in the Pair of Bulls, third in the Breeders Group, and fourth in the Sire Progeny Group.
