Charity Steer

2017 will be the first year for a Charity Steer for Wingham Beef Week with all money raised going to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Westpac is close to the heart of many locals who have been unfortunate enough to have had to use this service.

This year’s steer has been kindly donated by Mark Burke, Burke and Sons, Summerset. Burke and Sons operate a large Wagyu Angus cross commercial operation selling cattle to live export and feeder steers into feedlots. Wagyu beef is highly renowned for its high eating quality.

The steer is currently being prepared on grain donated by Ridley’s Taree, he will then be slaughtered at Wingham Beef Exports who will cover the cost of slaughter. The carcass will be delivered to Wingham Gourmet Meats where Scott Kelly has kindly donated his services to prepare the meat to be boxed ready for the auction.

The auction of the meat will be held in conjunction with the Live Auction of steers at Wingham Showground, 11am Thursday 18th May.
