The two-day event, which showcases the best beef cattle studs in the region, has shifted to a late-week slot to accommodate buyers and participants who have other commitments during the week.
“[It’s] open Friday and Saturday instead of through the week to make it that much easier for more people hopefully to get around,” Central West Beef Week committee member Trish Worth said at a launch event on Saturday.
“Some people have commitments during the week that they just can’t make it.”
Twenty-five studs from Oberon through to Dubbo will be open for public viewing on March 13 and 14, representing 11 different breeds including Angus, Murray Grey and Poll Herefords.
Ms Worth, who will open her Waratah Poll Herefords stud at Blayney for the event, said more studs were taking part this year.
She described the state of the industry as “very encouraging”.
