In a true display of bringing the country to the city, more than 1,600 head of Queensland's best cattle will descend on the Brisbane Showgrounds during Ekka. Speak to the experts at the Ekka Cow Paddock, where beef cattle farmers will be on hand to talk about the different cuts, fat layers and what’s involved in raising beef cattle. Brahman, Simmental, South Devon and Bazadaise breeds will all be on display. Ekka guests will have the chance to meet breeders and students conducting special presentations and participate in interactive displays (August 11-20).
