Record cattle field day

The annual ASHEEP cattle field day was held in September this year and showcased three very different grass fed finishing programs. There was a record attendance of 55

people.


Many cattle operations in Esperance rely on growing and finishing steers off grass as the main profit driver of their cattle enterprises. Grass finishing as opposed to selling weaners utilises pastures (and grazing crops) with relative ease to turn off a heavier carcase of high value product.


Thanks to the relationships built with stock agents, abattoirs and retailers, a premium for high grade grass finished beef can be achieved. Tom Wilding from Woolworths spoke of the importance of these relationships up and down the supply chain.
