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 2019 from 13th to 17th of May, for a week of competition, education and enjoyment.
