Henrietta lives up to her namesake

Nindethana Droughtmasters principal Bronwyn Betts, together with handler Lawrence Sehmish-Lahey, and junior champion heifer Nindethana Henrietta.Nindethana Henrietta was born on the same day as Bronwyn Betts’ father, Jack Betts, and because he was responsible for the establishment of the SamfordDroughtmaster stud in the 1970s, his second name was given tothe calf that has now brought the stud its third broad ribbon at the Royal Queensland Show.

The result of an AI pairing between aheifer purchased from High Country Droughtmasters and Ivanhoe Force, owned by RSVP Droughtmasters, brought what Bronwyn describes as an “early-maturing fleshy heifer” that won the junior champion ribbon in the Droughtmaster ring on Thursday.

It was the third RNA broad ribbon secured for Nindethana Droughtmasters since it began showing six years ago, beginning with reserve senior cow honours for Nindethana Daisibel in 2014, and junior champion heifer with her first calf, Nindethana Fairibel, in 2015.

“This year we were so lucky to get two broad ribbons, such an honour,” Bronwyn said.

She and husband Michael Hawkins took eight head to Brisbane and also exhibited reserve juniorchampion bull, Nindethana Harry.

Henrietta’s show debut was at the Droughtmaster Futurity at Gatton in March, as an unweaned calf, where she won her class.

In total she has won seven from eight blue ribbons, one second, and three broad ribbons where she has been up against heifers more than twice her age.

“She is one special little heifer,” Bronwyn said.

Matthew Kirk, Carinya Brahman stud and Ticoba Simbrah stud, judged the Droughtmasters and said the juniors were most impressive.

“I’m quite confident a lot of them will be back in the winner’s circle in future,” he said.

Although exhausted from the annual pilgrimage to the Ekka show ring, Bronwyn said being with fellow Droughtmaster breeders had been very rewarding.

“I’d always worked with horses and I didn’t realised I’d love working with cattle so much,” she said.

“I love the cattle people and enjoy the Droughtmaster community, which has an incredibly cohesive relationship.

“People commented on the way we all helped each other, and I think it’s from knowing, if the breeds succeeds, we all succeed.”
