Nominate top cattle for trophy for next year's Beef expo

IT'S the equivalent of an Olympic medal for cattlemen, according to Beef Australia chief executive Denis Cox (pictured).

Nominations are now open for the Landmark Stud Cattle Championships and Ruralco Commercial Cattle Championships, to be held at the Beef Australia 2015 expo.

"At the core of Beef Australia's existence is showcasing to the world the best beef cattle Australia has to offer," Mr Cox said.

"The fact that our national exposition is held just once every three years means that trophies are highly prized and keenly sought after by Australia's top cattle producers."

At the 2012 event more than 2000 head were judged in the Ruralco Commercial Cattle Championships held at CQLX in Gracemere.

The 2015 Championship will consist of 12 classes including both grain and grass-fed cattle, as well as four age groups in the young judged competition.

Cattle will be judged on Sunday, May 3, and sold at auction on Monday, May 4.

Stud producers have until January 30 to nominate.
