2017 Event Cancelled

We have successfully held this competition since 1993.

On average we have 200 -250 primary and secondary students, from districts including the Central West, Hunter Valley & Central Coast, who attend the event.

The event takes the form of a skills based competition and aims to provide an avenue for students to practice and apply knowledge acquired from their agricultural studies in the selection of beef cattle. Students from 8 to 18 years of age compete in 3 age categories assessing animals against criteria important for beef production. Students, participating as individuals and in teams of three, assess bulls, heifers and steers for market suitability, ranking the animals in preferential order. Students are also required to support their decision with a brief oral presentation.

The student's assessments are compared with those of an experienced cattle judge and the most accurate team assessment wins a steer for their respective school agricultural programme. Two Steers provided by sponsors (Bulga Coal - Glencore ) are eligible to be won by the primary and secondary schools placing first in the competition. Schools are encouraged to allow students to 'fit' these animals for various carcase competitions around the state. There is also two encouragement awards for schools deemed deserving by the organising committee.

The event is held on the second Friday of May each Year.
