Mr. Arno Last with Zeus.
The 2017 Letaba Show granted ample opportunity for Agri-Merensky’s show teams to display their skills over a four day period. The Plasie showmen competed against the best from Gauteng and Mpumalanga.
Behind the scenes, 27 Plasies were responsible for taking care of and grooming 24 cattle and 3 goats. The adrenaline flowed when they presented their livestock in front of judges in the ring.
In the cattle division, the junior Plasie showmen took top honours with Megan Strydom obtaining a 1st place and Andrea van Jaarsveld 2nd. Justin Breytenbach and Luandi Visagie ranked 4th and 5th.
The senior team salutes Nicky Smith with her 2nd place, while Johan Oberholzer (3rd), Iszabella le Roux (4th) and Timothy Venter (5th) contributed to the team’s success.
The judges also took notice of the Pin2Zyl stud awarding 2nd places for “3 Best Heifers” and “Group of 4 Cattle” and a 3rd place for “Best Duo”.
Agri-Merensky’s pride, Zeus, now carries the title: Senior Reserve Champion Bull.
