The heifers were judged on their suitability as future breeders, with points awarded for temperament, structural soundness, femininity, carcass quality and evenness of pen, for a maximum score of 100.
Competition was intense as 12 local breeders raised the stakes by bringing near-perfect heifers to the event.
Local breeder Steve Neville�s pen of four superior Black Angus heifers were outstanding, scoring 90 out of 100 to win the commercial section.
Alan Greenwell�s heifers could not quite graze enough points and scored 89 to grab second place.
There was a tie for third place between David Roe, Murray Hyne and David Kelly, each with 88 points.
There was also a tie for the stud section of the competition.
Equal winners were Dale and John Jansen�s Black Angus and Errol and Brendon Howard�s Speckle Park heifers.
Judge Brad Kupsch congratulated breeders on the high quality of their stock.
�The standard of cattle breeding in Gingin has improved consistently over the years of the competition and it is pleasing to see the results of quality management by local breeders,� he said.
