Welcome to the website of Wingham Beef Week, a subcommittee of Wingham Show Society.
Wingham Beef Week is a week-long event based on all facets of the beef industry giving students, juniors and producers a rare opportunity to participate in live assessment, carcase assessment and evaluation, meat judging, beef appreciation workshops, parading and judging competitions.
The event aims to educate at ground level the next generation of our future junior beef enthusiasts in a hands-on environment to increase their knowledge/exposure to the Australian Beef industry through education and competition.
Producers use the event to pit their skills, and benchmark their finished product against other producers and industry peers by competing in carcase competition’s, both led and unled.
Wingham Beef Week is a unique being the only such event in the State where participants have the rare opportunity of being invited by Wingham Beef Exports into their processing facility for carcase viewing, assessment and evaluation.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2018 from 14th to 19th of May, for a week of competition, education and enjoyment.

Charity Steer Auction
A magnificent Charolais/Belted Galloway cross steer will be auctioned in conjunction with Wingham Beef Week festivities on Thursday 17th May 2018 with all proceeds going to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. The steer affectionately known as “Marble” has been kindly donated by Merv & Beth Presland of “Bekadan Belted Galloway/ Charolais” stud at Mount George west of Wingham.
The purchaser of the live steer will not have to pay processing costs which have been kindly donated by Wingham Beef Exports & Scott Kelly of Wingham Gourmet Meats has generously offered to cut & package the beef for you.
The highest bidder will in fact be purchasing a complete butchered meat package …. How’s that for value for money!
On top of all of this the purchaser of the steer will be supporting the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service which we have come to rely on as an essential part of country life as one never knows when the need to use it may arise….it is close to all our hearts.
“Marble” is presently being prepared by the Presland’s on grain very kindly donated by Ridleys Taree…photos & further updates will follow.
