Meet the Farmers
Meet the farmers at Casino Beef Week and get right up close and personal with animals and their owners.
Hundreds of cattle will be lined up in the streets of Casino on the main Saturday at Beef Week. Why not plan your trip and come into town for jam-packed action including led steer and stud cattle competitions, NCMC Beef Expo and you will even get the opportunity to snap a selfie with a bull (please always make sure you ask the farmer for permission beforehand).
For industry associates Casino Beef Week aims to connect farmers with producers and buyers alike. Using Beef Week as a meeting hub in a relaxed but professional atmosphere, participants, farmers, exhibitors and industry experts will be able to leverage the business opportunities and network to establish partnerships.
