In November 2006 Glenanthony ventured south with their well-renowned show team headed by the newly imported Monreid Yardstick. The team performed extremely well, winning three out of the four breed championships and five out of the six major interbreed competitions including Yardstick's win in the Meat and Wool Cup.
