Steer Trial

The 44th Lardner Park Steer Trial will begin in July, with entrants invited from anywhere in Australia. Compliant with the Coles QA grass-fed program, the aim is to achieve the best outcomes for both during-trial information and data collection, and purchase price on carcass meat when the Trial is turned off in early December, as a domestic grade with a specification of between 210-285kg HSCW (hot standard carcass weight).

As the only grass-based Steer Trial in Australia, producers are provided with the opportunity to assess cattle under independently controlled grazing conditions. Entrants will be required, as part of the application process, to declare entered steers have not been grain fed since birth. Entry is by application only and must be received by 8th of June 2018.  Successful applicants will be notified no later than the 15th of June.
