Covering a rich breeding zone

AUSTRALIA - The 27 different breeds of beef cattle from 232 studs on display during Stock and Land Beef Week from January 29 to February 5 - covering Victoria and the Riverina - is a clear indication that south-east Australia is a major provider of herd improving genetics, Beef Week director Geoff Phillips believes.

This is the third highest number of studs ever entered in Beef Week and the strong entries in such a poor season clearly indicate the importance seedstock producers place on Beef Week as a major marketing activity," Mr Phillips said.

"Beef Week is a low-cost, high-value event and serves to showcase south-east Australia's seedstock industry."

Last year cattle producers from all states visited properties and indications are they will return to inspect cattle and discuss breeding programs with southern stud masters.

This will be the 16th time studs have had the opportunity to participate in Beef Week, which started in 1992 with a modest 50 studs and today is regarded as one of if not the most significant marketing opportunities available to seedstock producers in south-east Australia.
