A quality yarding of 54 prime head of cattle was submitted for judging at the recent Goombungee-Haden and Oakey Beef Classic. The annual event was supported by 18 vendors and was once again held at Elders Saleyards.  Judge John Norris from JBS selected a beast from Plainby vendors, Graeme and Wendy Motley, as the Supreme Beast of the Show.
