PADDOCK TO PALATE WAGYU CHALLENGE
Important Dates to Remember
FORMS AND INFORMATION
Australian Wagyu producers will have the chance to stake their claim on more than $10,000 in prize money, with the RNA launching the new 2016/2017 Paddock to Palate Wagyu Challenge – the only competition of its kind in the country.
The inaugural 330 day competition is calling on Wagyu producers from across the country, with entries open to Wagyu and Wagyu-cross cattle (minimum 50% Wagyu blood).
This new breed specific competition will form part of next year’s prestigious RNA Paddock to Palate Competition, presented by Mort & Co.
Similar to the current Paddock to Palate Competition, the Wagyu Challenge is four phased, comprising best aggregate weight gain (over 330 days); a carcass competition; carcass value and will finish in a beef taste off – a palate competition where a portion of striploin is cooked and judged. The winners will be announced in 2017.
Each exhibitor will be limited to entering two pens, with each pen comprising seven steers, with the best six judged.
Nominations will be capped at 259 animals (37 pens) and exhibitors are encouraged to get their entries in long before the Friday 27 May, 2016 nomination closure date to avoid disappointment.
