Once again Wyoming Romagnolas will be taking part in the internationally recognised Beef Australia, entering cattle in the ANZ National Beef Carcase Competition and the Nutrien Livestock Commercial Cattle Competition. Our cattle will include both Romagnola/Brahman cross steers and Romagnola/Angus cross steers. This will be the first time we have entered Romagnola/Angus cross cattle in this competition, so we are excited to see how they perform.
“The ANZ National Beef Carcase Competition appraisal system utilised in the competition has been specifically designed to meet both export and domestic market requirements and utilises the latest technology available to the beef industry. The competition aims to provide producers feedback on compliance of beef carcases to market specifications, yield of saleable meat and predicted eating quality of those carcases. The competition has been developed from the Australian Beef Carcase Appraisal System (ABCAS) by the National Beef Carcase Competition Committee of BEEF AUSTRALIA 2021. The subcommittee is composed of beef industry representatives, practitioners, processors and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA).” – Beef Australia 2021.
“Nutrien Livestock Commercial Cattle Competition provides producers with a unique opportunity to benchmark their stock against national standards, to gather feedback from experienced judges and identify areas where they can continue to improve to ensure our industry remains productive and profitable.” – Beef Australia 2021.
Judging of the commercial cattle commences on 2 May from 9am. The sale of the commercial cattle will then take place on from 8am Monday 3 May.
