As the nation waits to hear who will be Prime Minister, a winner was announced at Beef Week in Casino tonight, Saturday, May 21.

Casino Food Co-op chairman John Seccombe said the entrants could be proud that they were part of an event that queen entrants had entered for 40 years.

Richmond Valley mayor Robert Mustow took to the stage at the Casino RSM Club to announce the winner.

This year’s Beef Week Queen is Tayla Dawson. The runner-up is Tara Coles.

Tayla had ”no inkling” she might win, she said.

All entrants are part of the 11-day festival in Casino and surrounds celebrating the beef industry and the community.

The Queen and entrants will attend events such as the street parade, Breakfast with the Butchers and the fashion show.

The more serious cattle comps are held over four days.
