Stud Beef

In a true display of bringing the country to the city, stud beef cattle will descend on the Maitland Showground in a quest to be judged as the 2023 Champion.

The stud beef cows, calves, heifers and bulls from a range of breeds will be judged on Saturday 18th February 2023. They will first line up under the judges eye in their respective breed and age classes. Then the interbreed classes will follow in the process of awarding the Champion ribbons.

A highlight of the Beef Cattle judging is the Stud Beef Champion of Champions where the best beast of show is crowned. The cattle on display will be of high quality and in show condition.
