Steer Trial 2017

The 43rd Lardner Park Steer Trial runs from July to December under the Coles QA grass-fed program.  For information regarding the criteria and process of the Steer Trial, please review the 2017 Steer Trial Information downloadable PDF on this page.

As the only grass based Steer Trial in Australia the data and assessment of this Trial is strategically important to breeders, producers, livestock agents and processors.

On October 30, a demonstration day will be hosted at Lardner Park consisting of carcass evaluation where industry experts will compare and present a perfect carcass against a less than perfect carcass – know what it takes to get top dollar for your carcasses.  Detailed boning demonstrations will follow this presentation giving more insight into what cuts are from where and how to get the best from each, so even if you just fancy yourself as a home butcher, this will be an informative session.  Chefs will then excite your culinary creativeness by presenting on the best preparation for different cuts of beef and how to get the wow factor in the cooking.  A date will be advised post trial to encompass a gala evening of awards, one or two speakers, networking, and a premium meat eaters dining experience!
