Industry Events

With Australia being one of the world leaders in the export of red meat and livestock, Casino Beef Week is the perfect place to celebrate and get right up close and personal to see what the industry is all about. 

The festival offers unique opportunities for you to experience the industry in style. Casino is situated in the Richmond Valley region which is known as a nursery for the beef industry, producing quality cattle. It is supported by strong infrastructure including meat processing, transport and saleyards. The Casino Beef Week festival is the perfect platform to showcase the sector and to connect with industry experts, farmers, buyers and consumers. Watch farmers handle cattle in the main street of the CBD.

Listen to the judge explain what it takes to win the Beef Week Grand Champion Steer during the cattle competitions. Get amongst the action of the cattle sales while you witness the auctioneers do their thing. If you’re looking to bring kids to show cattle at Beef Week, why not check out the Beef Education Day aimed at schools teaching students all the ins and outs of showing cattle. There are plenty more events which are the perfect opportunity for corporate networking, industry seminars, luncheons and business opportunities which connect associates, buyers, farmers and consumers.
