Beef Week's 29 Years of Service

Stock & Land Beef Week, now in its 29th year, will run from Wednesday January 29 to Wednesday February 5 involving 170 properties in south-east Australia with 30 breeds on display.

According to Beef Week director Geoff Phillips, the event provides a critical service to the beef cattle industry by showcasing the genetics seedstock producers have available and providing commercial producers with the opportunity of selecting from some of the nation's leading seedstock herds.

"South-east Australia is home for many of the nation's foremost herds in the British and European breeds and during Beef Week they either sell bulls or have bulls on display that will be auctioned at upcoming autumn on-property or multi-vendor sales."

Beef Week opens with Day 1 in the eastern Riverina and works south then west through Victoria ending with Day 8 in the western Riverina/Goulburn Valley districts.

Over 5000 bulls will be on display and studmasters will be available to answer queries and give advice.

  • Day 2 , Thursday January 30 - NE Victoria
  • Day 3, Friday January 31 - East Gippsland
  • Day 4, Saturday February 1 - West Gippsland
