Keast Shield


The recent National Finals held at Perth Royal produced some of the best results NSW has seen in many years culminating in the overwhelming win of the Keast Shield.

The week commenced with the National Rural Ambassador competition and our representative Tim Green from Nimmitabel Show was awarded Runner Up in this prestigious event.

Following on, was the National Young Judges and Parading Competitions. 2019 saw the inaugural Alpaca Young Judges National Finals take place with Rubey Williams from Picton NSW crowned the winner.

Our other competitors also did NSW proud showing their knowledge, experience and commitment to these competitions.

Sam Parish – Beef Parader Champion

Tabitha Cross – Beef Young Judge Runner Up

Kieran Smith – Meat Breeds Sheep Champion

Jack Kelly – Merino Sheep Runner Up

Stephanie Davies – Merino Fleece Champion

Mitchell Atkins – Dairy Young Judges 3rd and Dairy Parader Finalist

Hannah Jenkins – Poultry Finalist

Witnessing the mateship and confidence in this team highlighted the fact that I believe the preparation weekend in Dubbo in August contributed greatly to our overall success.
