Reiland clients Shane and Jenny Priestly (pictured) have taken out the reserve champion carcase in the 2020 NSW Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial.

The couple run 60 Angus breeders on their 141ha property at Gregadoo, NSW, and decided to enter the competition to benchmark their herd.

The trial drew 87 teams with 81 per cent of entries hitting the weight and fat specifications, and recording an average daily weight gain of 2.32kg and the average MSA Index was 54.5.

Shane and Jenny join their Reiland blood cows to a Murray Grey bull and selected five steers on evenness, weight and type.

They were fed pasture and some hay before entering the Teys Australia Stockinbingal feedlot for 112 days.

Overall the pen had an average MSA Index of 56.30 and placed 23rd in the trial.

The couple usually sells their steers at 450-500kg live weight through the Wagga saleyards.
