There was renewed interest in the dairy competition at this year's Cairns Show.
Held over three days last week, five dairy and five beef studs from across the north showcased their finest cattle for judges Katie-Ann Flegler and Steven Ledger.
Stud cattle coordinator Amanda Hunter said the competition made for a very successful show.
"The $2000 Malanda Milk Double Crown competition was split five ways this year," Ms Hunter said.
"In order to win, a dairy animal must win a grand champion title at both the Cairns and Malanda Shows."
Ms Hunter said quality cattle from across the far north were drawn from five studs.
"The 2022 stud beef competition was dominated by the Fassifern Limousin stud," she said.
"Tully State High led a strong contingent in the stud beef young judges competition with Maeve Lowe taking out the overall competition winner and will go on to represent Cairns in the sub chamber final at Tully Show."
