Alpine Angus has been participating in Beef Week every year since 2006. Alpine Principal Jim Delany “The decision to bypass Beef Week in 2019 was not taken lightly. We are very disappointed to miss this day. We really enjoy putting our cattle on display and look forward to meeting and greeting people every year. It’s a shame that our day in Beef Week this year clashes with such a community focussed day however our Field Day a couple of weeks later gives ample opportunity to view the sale bulls and we are more than happy to show anyone around anytime that suits them.”
