CHEYENE Johnston has never met a beast so big and he's about to take residency at her school for the next 12 months.
The 16-year-old Monto High School student was one of many at the Rockhampton Showgrounds Beef Week 2012, checking out the brahman bullock.
School captain Madison May-Thomas said the bullock would help get students interested in agriculture "when they see the size of him".
The mighty bullock, named Kangarin-Tiny, was donated by Nick Dudarko for the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue organisation to sell and ran a weight-guessing competition at Beef Week.
Mr Dudarko said he donated the bullock after the not-for-profit rescue organisation saved his life.
"I got severely burnt and they did a hell of a lot to save me," he said.
Australian Country Choice, which supplies beef to Coles, paid $1400 for Kangarin-Tiny, and Coles topped that up with a further $600 for the rescue organisation.
ACC then donated the bullock to Monto State High School for 12 months to allow agricultural students learn how to handle such a large beast.
Kangarin-Tiny will then head back to Nick Dudarko's pastures.
The weight-guessing competition sold 3000 tickets, raising $6000 for the rescue organisation and 17 people guessed Kangarin-Tiny's correct weight - 1280kg.
The winner of the $400 cash and $100 Bob Jane voucher was Cindy Offord from Bouldercombe.
