Carabar Docklands wins grand champion angus bull

MORE than 100 entries were registered for the angus stud cattle section at this year's Ekka.

Calliope's Andrew Chapman judged all division within the breed, crowning Carabar Docklands as the grand champion bull.

The stylish sire has had a bumper season, also winning top ribbons at this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Owner Darren Hegarty said Docklands would be offered for sale later this year.
