Had a great start to the show season. We won Interbreed junior Pair, interbreed sires progeny pair, Interbreed group of three, Interbreed junior champion bull and grand champion Bull, Reserve senior interbreed female and reserve junior interbreed female.


Launceston Royal Show 2014

Launceston show was awsome!!! we came away with Supreme Beef exhibit with our Junior bull "Damelee Just A country Boy" what made the win sweeter was the fact that our senior cow Damelee Gossip was awarded supreme female of the show so either way we would take home the supreme exhibit award.

we also won interbreed junior pair, interbreed sires progeny pair and interbreed group of three.

Our photo of Damelee Gossip got on the inside cover of the new international semex catalogue Recently... 

Hobart Royal show 2012

We had a great hobart show!, for the 2nd year running we won the supreme champion female beef exhibit. This time it was with a junior female, Damelee Glow 15 month old Red simmental, who has sparked some interest on the show circuit this year, because of her all red coat colour which is a first for Tasmanian shows!! Another highlight was the fact that she come up against our senior female Damelee Farmgirl, who earlier in the day was awarded Senior champion interbreed Female. We were over the moon to win both major female awards for the show!!

Woonalee Favourite

We are very excited to announce the purchase of our new stud sire form Woonallee Simmentals Elite production sale.  Lot 2 Woonallee Favourite, We think he will complement our breeding program with his softness and extra performance and help stablize colour with his red factor.  He is incredibly docile as you can see in the photo.

19th & 20th of october 2011

Hobart Royal show

Our first hobart show turned out to be worth the trip, all our cattle performed well with us winning best interbreed group of three, Reserve junior champion bull, reserve junior champion heifer and to top it off Entree got a hat trick with her third supreme champion beef exhibit award. We are so proud to own such a great female!

May 5th-7th Agfest

Damelee simmentals sold one traditional simmental bull at the Agfest bull sale. Damelee Elite was offered on the helmsman system of auction. we were pleased with the results and wish his buyers the best of luck with their new purchase and hope they have as much success with the simmental breed as we have.

Wynyard show 2011

Damelee simmentals took 4 head to Wynyard show. All cattle won their simmental classes. Entree and Ellay went on to compete in the interbreed classes where Entree won the junior heifer of all breeds it was her 4th junior interbreed award from only 5 outings so we were very pleased. Damelee Ellay looked good in the ring with all the other junior bulls but was out classed on the Day. Thanks to Handlers Cindy Coad, Sam Ivory and Courtney Hardstaff. Corindadowns Entree Is 19 months in this photo and calved 4 weeks ago.

Simmentals get the results 2011

We sold a purebred simmental vealer steer on the 12/1/11 aged 10 months. The calf who was out of a first year heifer weighed in at an impressive 464kgs! He was sold at Quoiba sale yards where he got $2.01 kg which works out to be $932.64. Pretty good for 10 months. Results like this are pleasing because it means we are turning off cattle earlier and at heavier weights which makes for a more profitable business!

Circular head show 2010

Our last show for the year,and Stanley turned on the heat with some extremely hot weather. Heat in the sheds knocked our cattle around a bit with them refusing to eat. Wasn't to be Entree's day she got second in her heifer class. Damelee Ellay stepped up though and took out grand champion Bull of the show beating a very impressive senior hereford bull. It was a great way of wrapping up our first show season!

 

Devonport show 2010

We took 4 head to Devonport show. Entree and Eucalypt placed 1st and 3rd in their junior Heifer any other breeds class. Elisa placed 1st in the senior heifer all breed class. Entree ended up beating Elisa to become champion heifer any other breeds. Damelee Ellay pleased us with his second outing taking out the junior bull award in any other breeds, he later went on to place 4th in the junior interbreed bull class which we thought was a great result, with some pleasing comments. Corinda downs Entree went on to compete in the junior interbreed female where she placed first.We also placed second in the group of three in the any other breeds class. Was a very good but tiring weekend.

Very big thanks to Handlers Cindy Coad, Sheree Lawrence And Sam Ivory

Ulvestone Show update 2010

We exhibited two head of cattle at Ulverstone show. Corninda downs Entree took out the Supreme champion beef exhibit and Damelee Ellay got reserve Junior bull. They also won the junior pair. Had a very succesful day.

BURNIE SHOW UPDATE 2010

 Damelee simmentals went to its first show ever on the 1st and 2nd of october. After blowing a tyre and other dramas we arrived there in one piece. Friday morning was the first day of judging and with our heifers being the only simmental exhibits they each won their classes, then went on to compete against each other to become champion simmental heifer, Corinda downs Entree was victorious over Elisa. On saturday we set our sights on the interbreed classes, Entree was named interbreed junior champion female. She then went on to win supreme champion interbreed female and followed that up with Supreme champion Beef Exhibit! To say we were pleased was an understatement. still on cloud 9...
