FATHER and son team Les and Ewan Rockemer, Gigoomgan, Brooweena, exhibited the champion pen at the annual Burnett steer sale in Biggenden.

The Rockemers offered a pen of well grown 18 month old Kilkenny blood Charolais/Brahman-cross steers, selected by judge, Kenilwort-based, commission buyer John Ferriday. For their efforts, the Rockemer, were awarded a Leicht’s CIA Immobilizer Pro-Chute cattle crush

The 403kg steers sold for 419.2c/kg live to return $1691.

Thursday’s win makes back to back success for the Rockemers, who also exhibited the champion pen of weaners last May with a draft of Brangus heifers. On that day they collected a Leicht’s CIA calf cradle.
