The Herefords Northern NSW regional group once again ran a hugely successful barbeque stand at AgQuip this year.
Held in Gunnedah from the 21-23 of August, AgQuip is Australia’s largest agricultural field day and attracts thousands of visitors from across Australia each year.
The Herefords team worked tirelessly over the three days to keep the steaks rolling off the barbeque to hungry visitors, with many satisfied customers dubbing the Herefords steaks the best at AgQuip.
The dry season didn’t seem to affect people’s appetites, with 3700 steaks and 400 delicious Warragundi Hereford beef pies sold over the three days.
Money raised by the Herefords Northern NSW group during AgQuip is put towards promoting the breed throughout the region and supporting youth programs.
Site coordinator, Therese Crowley of Tycolah Herefords, Barraba ensured the site ran smoothly for the duration of the event and thanked the volunteers for all their hard work.
“It couldn’t happen without all the volunteers, and it was good to have some of the younger members involved this year.
“Special thanks to our [Herefords Northern NSW] secretary Eunice Vivers and treasurer John Kimminice.” Mrs Crowley said.
AgQuip is an important annual event for Herefords Australia as it offers a great opportunity to promote the Hereford breed.
“Having a site at AgQuip each year flies the flag for the breed and shows people what Hereford meat can do and how good it can be.
“It’s also a great opportunity to come together with other breeders and other people.” Mrs Crowley said.
