Corey, 23, works for Aussie Land & Livestock in Kingaroy and has done so since he left school.
As well as being a familiar face at the Coolabunia and Murgon saleyards, Corey is also well-known at local shows, preparing and leading cattle from his family’s Jen-Daview Limousins stud.
He has competed in the ALPA competition four times, and was a finalist in 2020.
Simon Kinbacher, from Elders in Rockhampton, was second in this year’s event.
