Beef bonanza comes to Tamworth


Australia’s richest cattle show is coming to Tamworth’s Australian Equine Livestock and Events Centre from October 7 to 9.


The inaugural Landmark Beef Championships will showcase the best beef genetics available in Australia, event organiser Landmark Tamworth’s Mark Haywood said.


Landmark was encouraged to hold the event by positive feedback from stud breeders, backgrounders, feedlotters, processors and retailers, Mr Haywood said.


“The Landmark Beef Championships will give producers an opportunity to showcase the region’s best grain fed, grass fed and crop assisted cattle, while being judged in a manner that lifts the industry’s profile by showcasing the best beef genetics on offer.”


The judging will include led and unled cattle classes, a hoof and hook competition, prime cattle classes, feeder cattle classes and a junior judging and parader’s competition.


“As a committed partner of the Future Farmers Network, Landmark has the ability to make this a showcase of not only the beef industry but also the educational facilities available to the youth of Australia looking to forge a career in agriculture,” he said.


Mr Haywood said the event demonstrated Landmark’s focus on providing Australian beef producers with an opportunity to showcase and benchmark their product whilst further strengthening Landmark’s 150 year commitment to Australian farmers.


Entry fees would be kept to a minimum with the option of exhibitors in Class 3 of the Hoof and Hook competition contributing an additional $20 entry fee to compete for the jackpot prize pool in the Landmark Beef Championships carcass competition.


Prize money for the jackpot competition will be determined by the number of entries. All jackpot entry fees will be allocated to the jackpot prize money.
