Wingham Beef Week
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 if 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.

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.
