    your comment is probably correct, however I enjoy the event every 3 years, drink some rum, tell a lot of lies, catch up on people I only see every 3 years. Some go fishing, I go to Beef Week.

    Cannot believe the comments from Tim Mc Hugh.
    People come from all over Australia and indeed the world to see and experience this event.
    So much to see and do. The benefits are just enormous.

    Hello Tobias. We’re endeavouring to find out from the Beef 2015 event organisers why there was no Hereford judge mentioned, and will report back to readers. Editor

    Tim McHugh: You can’t be serious!!!
    I learned more valuable information for my cattle business in 3 or 4 hours at different seminars and workshops at Beef 2012 than I did in years. There’s a lot more going on in Rocky than just a cattle competition. Take the time to have a look around.

    But of no monetary benefit to the graziers ! Obviously someone is making money out of Beef Week , but it is not the graziers of Australia 🙁
