UNE Meat Judging

OBE Beef is product to sponsor the 2006 University of New England Meat Judging team.

Sharon Oldfield of Cowarie Station in South Australia, is a strong supporter of OBE Beef. Her daughter, Ashlee is in her second year of a Bachelor of Agricultural Business at the University of New England. Ashlee is a participant in the meat judging team. We wish her and the entire team the best of luck!

Students from the University of New England are training to compete in the 2006 Australian Inter-Collegiate Meat Judging (I.C.M.J.) competition to be held from the 27th June -1st July. The ICMJ competition aims to encourage youth to delve into the many exciting and oportune areas of the meat industry.

This year all students will attend a 3 day training course in Armidale with special guest lecturer Dr. Tom Carr from the University of Illinois, USA;  followed by the judging competition held at Cargill Beef Australia, Tamworth. The students are required to judge beef, pork, and lamb classes in terms of yield and quality aspects.
