Beef Australia, the nation’s premier beef industry event, has today opened nominations for the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship, a crown jewel within the triennial event.

Beef Australia CEO Simon Irwin said the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship is recognised by the seed stock sector as our nation’s premier stud cattle competition.

“Beef Australia exists for the advancement of the Australian beef community, and the Nutrien Ag Solutions Stud Cattle Championship is at the heart of what we do”, Mr Irwin said.

“As with every event, the Championship will be closely watched as producers vie to secure a prestigious Beef Australia ribbon and be named the best of the best in stud cattle across the country.

“The results of years, and for some producer’s, decades of work will be showcased over five days at the 2024 event, which is testament to the dedication shown throughout the industry.

“Beef2021 saw 1,700 stud cattle championship entrants, representing 30 breeds from across the nation.

In 2024 we’ll see the introduction of Ultras being judged in a category of their own, making the 2024 Championship more competitive than ever.

“With nominations opening today, we encourage breeders to nominate their top-quality cattle, vie for top honours and showcase the pinnacle of excellence within the stud cattle industry to the national and international audience that will be at Beef2024”.

Beef Australia Stud Cattle Championship Committee Chair James Kent said the Committee have been working closely with the Beef Australia team to work through and finalise details for the 2024 Championship.

“The Beef Australia Stud Cattle Championship Committee, appointed by Beef Australia in January 2023, are proud to be working on such a prestigious championship within our industry”, Mr Kent said.

“It’s been a busy 12 months working through classes and criteria, prize money, entry fees and scheduling of events but the committee remain focused on creating a platform that not only showcases the finest cattle but also serves as a time to celebrate the hard work and dedication of the Australian seed stock sector.

“Planning for the Stud Cattle Championship involves an incredible amount of volunteered time to which end I’d like to thank the committee for their unwavering support and dedication as we head towards Beef2024”.

Nutrien Ag Solutions NE Region Livestock Lead Colby Ede said Nutrien Ag Solutions is excited to continue their partnership with Beef Australia in 2024 as a Principal Partner.
