Northern Beef Producers Expo

7-8 June 2019

H.M. Clarke Saleyards and Equestrian Centre – Charters Towers Qld.

The Northern Beef Producers Incorporated (NBP Inc.) is excited to launch the fourth Northern Beef Producers Expo (NBPE) to be held in Charters Towers at the H.M. Clarke Saleyards and Equestrian Centre on Friday the 7th and Saturday the 8th June 2019.

With ongoing support from the rural sector, the organising committee aims to again deliver a successful event that fosters innovation in the Northern beef industry.

The organising committee are busy behind the scenes making important plans for this years event.

Stay tuned for the release of more information over the coming weeks. 


What’s new in 2019?

The 2019 NBPE is set to be the biggest event yet delivered by the volunteer committee. The committee has made some important changes to the event layout and are excited to see these come into effect. The NBP Inc. is also excited to introduce new event components to the programme for the 2019 Northern Beef Producers Expo

Change of venue

The NBPE on the back of continued support and growth each year outgrew the original venue, evident by the jampacked layout of the 2017 event. With the addition of new event components, the committee made the decision to move the event to the H.M. Clarke Saleyards and Equestrian Centre. The new venue will allow all event components to be combined into one location and provides ample room for a growing trade exhibition.

Change of date

Formally, the NBPE has been delivered in the month of March. The committee has considered the event date carefully for several years with a decision made to shift the 2019 event to the month of June. The primary reasons for the date shift included the addition of a Commercial Cattle Competition to the event as well as the eminent risks of poor weather in the month of March. The committee is confident the change of date will assist with the continued growth and success of the overall event.

Working Cattle Dog Trial – Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of June

The NBP Inc. committee has assisted with the delivery of two Queensland working cattle dog trial association events in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, the committee is excited to bring this fully affiliated working cattle dog trial into the NBPE program. This exciting new event feature will attract increased attendance to the overall event.

Commercial Cattle Competition – Friday 7th June

In 2018, the NBP Inc. committee took a step away from usual business, with future growth and potential in mind. The committee worked to reintroduce an important event to the region – a commercial cattle competition. For many years, the presence of a commercial cattle competition in the Charters Towers region had been missing. The NBP Inc. were successful in reintroducing the competition with local graziers keenly accepting the opportunity to display some of the quality grass-fed cattle produced across the region.

To initiate further growth and development the NBP Inc. committee for the first time will include the commercial cattle competition and presentation evening function into the program of the NBPE.

“Steak your claim” demonstration series

An exciting new addition in 2019, the “Steak your claim” series will provide Trade Exhibitors the opportunity to demonstrate and put their exciting new innovation or product in the spotlight.

The 2017 Northern Beef Producers Expo attracted more then 1200 patrons through the gates of the Charters Towers Showgrounds
