Although the 2020 Ekka was cancelled due to COVID-19 planning is now underway for the 2021 show.
In a true display of bringing the country to the city, more than 1,100 head of stud beef cattle descend on the Brisbane Showgrounds each year - the largest showing of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The animals on show at the Ekka are a showcase of some of the best genetics in the world, all in the one location in the heart of Brisbane.
The Stud Beef judging started in 1876 and includes several competition categories such as paraders, herdsmens, champion of champions, young judges and more.
A highlight of the beef cattle judging is the Stud Beef Champion of Champions where the best beast of show is crowned.
