First judged in 1979, the Ekka Led Steer Competition has been rated one of the best of its kind in Australia. Classes cover both live and carcass categories, a schools competition, and an interbreed competition for teams of three led steers.
The Led Steer School competitions showcase the next generation of cattle exhibitors and show the judges why the cattle industry is in safe hands.
In 2021, the Led Steer Competition will have an exciting new home in the Stock Pavilion, closer to the exhibitor onsite accommodation.
The ALPA Young Auctioneers Queensland State Final will take place as part of the Led Steer Auction.
