Future Beef NZ – Hoof & Hook Competition
The FBNZ Hook & Hoof Competition is moving to Hawke’s Bay in its 15th year!
The Hoof and Hook competition is a weekend-long experience designed to immerse competitors into the beef industry. We welcome youth aged 8-24 of all experience levels and have options for everyone.
Competitors arrive on Friday afternoon for registration and an official welcome followed by intermediate and senior ambassador interview then it’s an early night ready for a 6 am start on Saturday.
On Saturday and Sunday competitors are split off into their age and experience level based groups for a mix of stock judging, handlers classes, educational modules, and fun team building activities.
Beef Bash on Saturday night is the perfect time to meet new people, catch up with old friends and pick the brains of our amazing volunteers, who bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry. Everyone is welcome to join us for this evening of food, fun, and catch-ups!
At the conclusion of the event prize giving is held in the main show ring before we say ‘catch you later’ for another year.
