Celebration of West Country Beef
28th October 2015
This year’s Beef South West Show which is to be held at Westpoint Arena, Exeter on Wednesday 11th November is going to be a celebration of all that is good about West Country beef. Not only will there be the premiere primestock show for the best West Country commercial fatstock and pedigree cattle, there will also be competitions for the finest beef steaks and beef burgers produced in the West Country. The event is set to be a gathering of the region’s top cattle farmers, leading butchers and farm shops, bringing the whole supply chain together under one roof.
The steak and burger competitions are supported by Taste of the West and Ladies in Beef and are open to all butchers and farm shops in the West Country region. The show this year will feature the recently gained PGI for West Country beef, a prestigious European designation due to the region’s topography which results in West Country cattle gaining a minimum 70% for their lifetime feed requirements from grass and forage.
“Visitors to the show will be supporting the PGI as much of the £10 entry fee (£8 in advance) will be donated to Meat South West to help with the future promotion of the PGI, so that in itself is a good reason for the region’s beef farmers to attend and champion their industry” said the shows organising committee’, chairman Rob Venner.
