Why Should I Enter?

Each year the Beef Cattle Competition takes place as part of the Royal Melbourne Show, with more than 600 cattle shown over the 11 days of the Show.

Exhibitors compete to win significant prize money and major awards, including the prestigious Interbreed Supreme Beef Exhibit trophy and the Wellcom Supreme Sire Award. 
 
Encouraging excellence in beef cattle breeding, the competition provides exhibitors with the opportunity to benchmark their stock and receive invaluable feedback from judges.  
 
With emphasis put on delivering an exceptional exhibitor experience, the competition includes high calibre judges, exhibitor facilities and results technology. 
 
Through a series of cattle parades and judging in the Grand Pavilion, the competition is a platform for educating the public and celebrating the beef industry.
