Beef Week Autumn 2013 Conditions/Information
The continued support of our sponsors, Stock & Land, Merial Australia, Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria and Rural Finance is very much appreciated. With the help of sponsors and Stock & Land newspaper, the event will be aggressively promoted to ensure participants receive good exposure. This will not only attract visitors through your front gate, but it will build images and reputations which will assist marketing in the future.
Participants will receive easily seen directional signs, pen cards, a quarter-page entry in the Beef Week book which will be distributed in every copy of Stock & Land and the backup of a broad and carefully planned advertising campaign.
EACH PARTICIPANT WILL RECEIVE FOUR LARGE ROAD SIGNS and 12 PEN CARDS.
Additional supplies are available at cost.
Beef Week is timed to precede the bull selling season so if you sell privately or have an on-property auction planned you can’t miss being part of this important event.
