Wingham Beef Week


Wingham Beef Week is a community-based event with a week-long program focusing on all facets of beef industry.

Wingham Beef Week provides students, juniors and producers with 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 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.

Wingham Beef Week is a subcommittee of Wingham Show Society.

2024 Wingham Beef Week

13th May – 17th May 2024

From the President

It is a great pleasure to welcome everyone to the 37th Wingham Beef Week.

Wingham Beef Week brings together school students, commercial and hobby beef producers, young beef cattle enthusiasts and beef industry experts from all sectors of the production process for a week of education, competition and interaction. It provides a great opportunity to showcase cattle, but more importantly, it provides an educational experience for over 450 youth who are excited about agriculture and its future.

This year, the Committee have worked hard to develop a program that builds on the successes of previous years. We are excited to welcome Dave and Karen Webeck from Sunnyside Copeland as our School Steer Challenge supporters and thank them for their support.
As in previous years, Wingham Beef Week is very fortunate to be supported by many sponsors and the local community. We gratefully acknowledge this support and ask all participants to show their appreciation by supporting these businesses whenever possible.
A very special thanks to NH Foods and Wingham Beef Exports under the leadership of Chris Black (General Manager). Wingham Beef Exports provide support in many forms, including the use of facilities, access to chillers for meat judging and carcase viewing, carcase assessment for the carcase competition and administrative support.

Again this year, the current weather and pasture conditions should provide a very competitive year in the ‘grass-fed’ classes. I encourage local commercial producers to participate in these classes to gain feedback and benchmark their cattle against other producers.
I want to give my greatest thanks to our Committee and Volunteers this year, who have worked enthusiastically to provide an event that builds on the tradition of the Wingham Beef Week experience. Please show your support to the Committee members and Volunteers around the grounds- this event would not be possible without them.

Please mark May 13 to May 17 down in your calendars, and come along to enjoy an outstanding exhibition of beef cattle and appreciate the efforts and skills of producers, teachers, and students.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Josh Gilbert
President Wingham Beef Week
