The Isaac region’s reputation as one of Queensland’s agricultural powerhouses was highlighted at Clermont’s premier beef event.

Respected beef producers collected their trophies at Clermont Showgrounds and Saleyards where the outstanding 2020 Clermont Beef Expo was staged.

Mayor Anne Baker attended to present the Finger family from Hillview Cattle Co, who claimed Isaac Regional Council’s Grand Champion Exhibit of the day.

“Now, more than ever, these events to celebrate our agricultural industry are truly a celebration of our community especially during these tough times,” Mayor Baker said.

“Alongside mining, agriculture remains a critical industry to our Isaac region, employing 5.1 percent of the Isaac workforce and grossing $374 million in agricultural commodities.

“A genuine and heartfelt congratulations to the Finger family for their Grand Champion Exhibit win for their pen of Simmental cross, and of course to all our winners across the region.”

Mayor Baker said despite the challenging times the industry continues to conquer, the Isaac region’s beef line-up continues to impress.

“Council congratulates Hoch and Wilkinson, the organising committee, members and volunteers for their hard work in bringing our agricultural community together today in these unprecedented times,” she said.

“It is a true example of the pure people power which drives our local communities.”
