Lardner Park Steer Trial
For almost half a century, Lardner Park has been conducting an annual Steer Trial program, with entrants encouraged to participate from all around Australia. The steer arrives on-site in late June, with the program turned off in late November. 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, as a domestic grade with a specification of between 220-330kg HSCW (hot standard carcass weight).
As the only grass-based Steer Trial in Australia, producers across multiple states are provided the opportunity to assess cattle under independently controlled grazing conditions. Entrants are required, as part of the application process, to declare entered steers have not been grain-fed since birth. Entry is by application only.
