A classy black bull with enough extra hindquarter to muscle out the rest of the line-up took senior and grand bull and then supreme exhibit at Thursday's Limousin National Show, held at Holbrook.

Summit Treasury R18, bred and exhibited by Hayden and Jasmine Green, Summit Livestock, Uranquinty, outclassed another of their own entries, the apricot Summit Light-Ice S14.

Judge, Glenn Trout, Dromana, Vic, said the bull won the day for supreme due to its extra softness, depth and carcase and whoever buys him at the sale should do pretty well.

The two-year-old polled bull weighed 830 kilograms, with a 37 centimetre scrotal circumference, with 10 and 6 millimetres of rump and rib fat, and a 133 square centimetre eye muscle area.

"It's a very proud moment to be standing out here among these bulls that are exhibiting everything you'd hope to see," Mr Trout said of the champion bull line-up as he put forward Treasury as grand.

But he said Treasury's "extra bit of muscling in the hind end, and extra power and weight and performance" made the bull a standout.

The bull's breeder, Mr Green, said this was both the bull and the heifer's first show.

Treasuer's dam, Summit Meadowgrass 2149 H39, had Wulfs breeding on both sides of her pedigree and had been the supreme Limousin exhibit at the 2017 Sydney Royal Show before then also going on to win champion of the world Limousin female in the same year - the only Australian Limousin cow to have done so.

Treasurer's sire, Cottage Lake Big Star, had also been a sire of multiple champions.

Summit's grand female, Light-Ice S14, was by homebred sire, Summit Custom-Made P11 and from Summit Light-Ice P112 and had a Royal Canberra Show interbreed champion as a grand dam.

She was described by Mr Trout said he admired the heifer for the way she represented the breed "for all the right reasons", including her softness, depth and muscling.

The senior female, Tanybryn Park Pheobe, from Tanybryn Park, Tanybryn, Vic, at just shy of four years old, was shown with an impressive heifer calf by Garren Park Lucien.

Pheobe was by TMF Redwood and from Tanybryn Park Miss Muffet and Mr Trout said he appreciated the depth and volume of the cow, as well as her carcase characteristics.

The junior champion bull, Raydon Park Ranger, exhibited by Raydon Park, Mulloon, was a also a black, polled bull.

At 19 months he weighed 810kg, with a 133sq cm EMA, 15mm and 9mm rump and rib fat and a 36cm scrotal circumference.
