The Australian Wagyu Association (AWA) is again facilitating the Wagyu Branded Beef Competition. To be judged by a panel of peers on March 14, 2019 at Hog’s Cleveland, Queensland, the award winners will be announced during the WagyuEdge: Building Integrity Annual Conference held at Adelaide Convention Centre May 8-10, 2019.
The highly regarded Branded Beef Competition seeks to promote excellence in Wagyu beef production in four classes providing an opportunity for producers to benchmark their product.
To showcase the leading brands of Australian Wagyu, entries can compete in Fullblood, Crossbred and Commercial; the fourth class enables butchers to create a sausage that highlights the sensational flavours that Wagyu can provide.
