Each class will be judged on inspection of the animals, and on their performance (Quality Beef Index for each bull and Suckler Replacement Index for each female) and will be placed accordingly.
From these class winners will be selected the Male, Female and Breed Champions which will be judged on inspection only.
The highest placed animal on inspection in its class will receive the equivalent in points of the Highest QBI (bulls) or SRI (heifers) of those animals in the ring, and the lowest placed animal on inspection will receive the equivalent in points to the lowest QBI or SRI. The remaining animals will receive points at the judge’s discretion in between the two previous points. These points will then be added to the animal’s own QBI or SRI, and the animals will be pulled forward in order of the highest combined points. In the event of a tie the animal with the highest QBI or SRI will be placed highest.
