This year’s competition will comprise the best aggregate weight gain over 100 days (70 days for trade); a carcass competition and will finish in the MSA eating quality competition.
The exhibitor who polls the highest aggregate score across these three categories is then awarded the overall prize which will be announced during the Royal Queensland Show at a special Paddock to Palate Competition Awards Presentation Breakfast.
All steers will be forward sold over the hooks to JBS Australia Dinmore on a price and grid to be negotiated so that all exhibitors have full transparency on pricing. Similarly ration pricing will be advised to all exhibitors by Mort & Co.
The feedlot phase of the competition will be conducted at Mort & Co’s Grassdale Feedlot at Dalby which is one of Australia’s largest and most modern feedlots.
