If Rural Ladies High Tea makes you hungry, you'll also enjoy the free Breakfast with the Butchers the next day.

The Breakfast with the Butchers is the one morning of the year where the town of Casino all come together to enjoy a free breakfast in the CBD. Not only will you indulge in a free sausage or steak sandwich with chocolate or strawberry milk but will also get a kick out of everything from carnival games, a cow milking competition, cow pat lotto and live entertainment throughout the morning. 

Beef Week President, Frank McKey says “The breakfast is about bringing the community together, sample our delicious local beef and saying thank you for their ongoing support with a snag or steak.”

Catch the top 3 performers busking a MOOve at the grand final of the annual Country IT Busking Competition that morning, with the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people and plenty of cash prizes up for grabs. Entry forms available here soon.

The Breakfast with the Butchers is also the place to be to witness the judging of the FINDEX Casino’s Best Beef Sausage Competition. The challenge is put to all butchers in the Richmond Valley to put their snags up for the test. Three judges sample each entry and will judge on factors including its presentation, content, colour and aroma where the stakes set in the Beef Capital are pretty high. Do you think that you have what it takes to be crowned the owner of Casino’s Best Beef Sausage?
