Thunder on a roll

SPECKLE Park bull Fish Creek Farm Thunderstruck L1 won the junior interbreed bull show against 55 other bulls at the Royal Geelong Show recently.
Owned by Jason and Sarah Keays from Fish Creek, Thunderstruck is the first speckle park bull to achieve that feat at Geelong.
Thunderstruck also won junior bull and grand champion bull in the all breeds class at the show.
“He has now become a 10 time broad ribbon champion at 15 months old at royal shows which has included two interbreed and a supreme champion,” Mr Keays said.
He has been declared champion in South Australia, Sydney and Melbourne and now, Geelong.
“I took him to Total Livestock Genetics to get him collected on Sunday for our upcoming embryo transfer program in November,” Mr Keays said.
“The judges all complimented on how complete he is as a bull with extraordinary carcass and would be a huge asset to both stud and commercial breeders.
“Our stud manager Erin Grylls prepared and handled Thunder again and did a fantastic job. We really have appreciated what Erin has done for us.
“He is one special bull to achieve what he has all over Australia at such a young age.”
