The Casino Beef Week provides Australian cattle breeders to put on display the finest specimens in the industry. It is a chance to showcase what the genetics of their cattle can produce. Only the best-of-the-best from Australia are put on the show for the world to judge.
The cattle competition is a prestigious event with the award of the day finding the place of pride for many breeders. Australia is known for their production of the finest beef and this particular competition is a chance to solidify their place both nationally and internationally. Cattle breeding in order to produce top-quality specimens takes careful planning, preparation and paring of only the finest studs and steers.
The two featured categories are the “hook and hoof” steer competition and the “stud beef cattle” competition. Casino Beef Week Saturday is the occasion for the main events. Steers are also judged on the main Saturday, however, they are then prepared for a further event the following Saturday. The carcass results presentation is the secondary competition which is equally as prestigious.
