Entries are now open for the Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial with some slight alterations to this year's cattle requirements.

The trial is open to milk tooth steers of all descriptions, breeds and crosses, with an induction weight of 380 kilograms to 460 kilograms.

Beef Spectacular coordinator Brett Tindal, Wagga Wagga, said unlike previous trials cattle would need to be HGP free this year.

The change was made so dual entered cattle bound for the Beef Australia 2021 national carcase competition in Rockhampton, Queensland would have the best chance at both events.

"A learning from 2018, where our vendors entered 189 head into the national competition, as well as the Beef Spectacular, was that by having a "pill" in them, our vendors were at a disadvantage by loosing five MSA Index points on each animal before they started, so we have changed that up so we can compete on an even playing field," he said.

The Beef Spectacular Feedback Trial entry weight has also changed to 380kg to 460kg to meet a tighter specification for Teys Australia and allow dual entered cattle to hit optimum weight for both competitions.

Entries will be open until July 17.
