The Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial has been building as one of the premier commercial feedlot trials in the country over the past 4 years, since its’ inception. The demand for feedback from the producers is unprecedented and has driven the need for a trial like this to service the industry. It is Certified Australian Angus Beefs’ absolute pleasure to be the major sponsor of this event.
With entries now closed it can be revealed, for those who are competing they are doing so in what is now the largest commercial feedlot trial in Australia. A whopping 630 entries have been received up from last year on 380 head. It can also be revealed that some entries had to be turned away due to the feedlot simply not being able to accommodate the sheer numbers that came pouring in. Brett Tindal of The Land Newspapers said, “the result is simply overwhelming and we can only say thankyou to all producers for their magnificent support”.
The range on entries this year is extremely diverse in breed and type, with entrants coming from across all parts of NSW, Victoria and even Southern Queensland. There was even an enquiry from a producer wanting to enter from Tasmania, with logistics thwarting such an entry.
If you have entered the Beef Spectacular Feedlot Trial and haven’t already been contacted by the team at Coopers Animal Health to organise delivery of your Bovilis MH + IBR, or the arrangements to share with people close to you, you will be contacted shortly. Coopers are alo a sponsor providing the Bovilis MH + BR to all entrants free of charge.
Martins Transport, also a sponsor has donated freight from central pick up points. To accommodate the amount of cattle entered, there will need to be a little bit of flexibility from all entrants to make sure all cattle find their way safely to Jindalee. The options for central pick up points at various saleyards will be communicated in the coming weeks.
For those participants who have not yet completed the full details of entry we urge you to do this as soon as possible. Incorrectly completed forms or forms not supplied, will see points deducted from your entries prior to feedlot entry demonstrating how important paperwork is to the process of producing beef. Cattle Nomination Forms ( which was part of the entry form) A zero tolerance policy for late paperwork is in place and all forms are to be sent to Brett Tindal no later that August 31. Points will be deducted for those who send them in late. You can fill the form in and scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax the filled in form to (02) 6921 7828.
We hope Angus producers that have not entered may enter in the future and encourage you to follow this trial to observe the effectiveness of the trial in communicating relevant data to the producer and for the producer to be able to benchmark themselves against other breeds and producers.
Goodluck to all whom have entered, CAAB will keep you posted on the goings in within the trial and of course the results when they come in early next year.
