Taylah Hobbs - People of O-Town
“I’ve grown up with cattle, my Dad started when he was around 20 and always continued through. My brother has a stud and so do my parents, We breed Red Angus and Simmentals.
They are always like a second best friend to me, they are always there, they don’t always listen but you can still talk to them.
I’ve been showing competitively since I was seven years old. We went to Sydney Show this year and we didn’t go too bad. I went there with school as well, I took my steer there and managed to get a silver medal.
The furthest I’ve travelled for a show would be to South Australia, to a show called Round Up. Round Up is for 8-25-year olds, when it was in Mount Gambier in 2017, I got Champion Peewee Parador and Reserve Champion Herdsperson.
This year we went to ‘Armidale RoundUp’ and I managed to get Champion Junior Parador, Champion Herdsperson, and I got the E.J Angus Award – it’s an encouragement award and an award for being respectful for everyone and encouraging and helping everyone.
I hope to continue showing them and continue what my family has bred and have my own stud one day.”
