This competition not only provides a platform for cattle producers to showcase their beef and benchmark their own achievements against the best cattle producers in Central Queensland, but it also operates as an important fundraiser for local beneficiaries.
For the coming year, the beneficiaries will include the Ridgelands Show Society, Marlborough P&C, ICPA-Capricornia Branch of the Air, Dingo P&C, Capricornia School of Distance Education P&C and Clarke Creek P&C.
A record total of $21,702.03 was returned to the local communities involved in the 2017 competition. After 10 years, the CQCC Competition has returned funding of $99,692.87 to local community organisations. This funding provides valuable resources to these smaller and generally more remote organisations, and as such, your support helps to ensure these communities are not disadvantaged.
