2017 Royal Queensland Show (Ekka)

 

RNA Paddock to Palate Competition presented by Mort & Co

and 2017-18 Paddock to Palate Wagyu Challenge

 

$56,000 Prize Pool

 

 

Now is the time to ‘steak’ your claim on $56,000 in prize money, with entries opening today for the RNA’s Paddock to Palate Competition presented by Mort & Co and the 2017/18 Paddock to Palate Wagyu Challenge.

 

Celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, the Paddock to Palate Competition is tipping the scales with $46,000 in prize money, making it the nation’s richest beef competition of its kind.

 

Meanwhile, Australian Wagyu producers will also cash in next year, with $10,000 in prize money up for grabs in the 2016/17 Paddock to Palate Wagyu Challenge.

 

The Paddock to Palate Competition is a three phased competition comprising best aggregate weight gain over 100 days (70 days for trade); a carcass competition and an MSA eating quality competition, with the exhibitor who polls the highest aggregate score across the three categories awarded the overall prize.

 

Entries into the Paddock to Palate Competition must be in by Friday 3 February, 2017, but with the competition capped at 777 head of cattle for Class 37 and 518 head of cattle for Class 38, we’re encouraging you to get in early. 

 

The Paddock to Palate Wagyu Challenge is also calling for entries into its 2017/18 competition, which will be held across 370 days, commencing in June next year.

 

The four phased competition comprises best aggregate weight gain; a carcass competition; carcass value and finishing in a beef taste off – a palate competition where a portion of striploin is cooked and judged.

 

Entries are open to Wagyu and Wagyu-cross cattle (minimum 50 per cent Wagyu blood) and nominations will be capped at 259 animals (37 pens), with exhibitors able to enter three pens each comprising seven steers, with the best six judged. Entries close Friday 21 April, 2017.
