DEPARTMENT OF PRIMARY INDUSTRY AND FISHERIES BARKLY BEEF | page 2 www.dpif.nt.gov.au Pieter Conradie (DPIF Alice Springs), Jane Tincknell (DPIF Alice Springs) and Helen McMillan (DPIF Tennant Creek) ensured everyone was well fed throughout the day. The competition was very intense and all competitors should be proud of the high quality stock that was on display. The results are shown below. A big thanks to Anthony Lagoon Station for bringing in the poddy for the Guess the Weight competition which was won by Millie How of Eva Downs with a weight of 369 kg. Michael Chook Fowler from Brunchilly won the Guess the Number of Jellybeans (795), Troy Johnson from Charles Darwin University won the Guess the Number of Eartags (107). Competition for Guess the Breed was fierce this year, however Blythe Stafford from Alice Springs managed to get 100% in the City Slickers division and Luke Atton, Landmark Alice Springs also blitzed the Pastoralists division.
