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 competitionโ€™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.

2021 Wingham Beef Week

Online Junior Judging Competition – entries open 1st of June and closing on the 11th of June

From President

Thank you to everyone who has prepared cattle for Wingham Beef Week 2021, unfortunately this yearโ€™s show has been changed once again.

The Wingham Beef Week committee alongside our major sponsor Wingham Beef Exports, want to still offer schools and producers the opportunity to breed, feed and compete with their cattle.

This year we have included the Manning Valley Naturally class that gives grass fed producers a chance at winning extra money for having the best grass-fed exhibit in each class We will ensure that we can provide the most feedback and educational content to keep to our main goal of educating the future men and women of the Australian cattle industry.

Hopefully 2022 will see the return of our standard and normalized Wingham Beef Week events.

Matt Martin – Wingham Beef Week President

Virtual Junior Judging

The Wingham Beef Week committee are glad to announce that they prepared a Virtual Judging section to provide more educational content for the students involved.

We are planning on incorporating a Virtual Junior Judging experience along with a potential Virtual Meat Judging class.

Schools who have previously participated in Wingham Beef Week will be contacted with the details once they are ready to release.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for further details in relation to this event!


New Competitions including Pen of 4, Highest MSA Index and Best Grass-Fed Exhibit. Entries are now closed.

Two of our major sponsors Wingham Beef Exports and Meat & Livestock Australia have started working on a small video series that helps educate producers on issues within the industry.

This first video focuses on Liver Fluke.

Cattle with liver fluke grow at a slower rate and can even get sick enough to die.

To check your animal health data from previous Wingham Beef Week events check out the Livestock Data Link website.
