Beef Week queen entrants shun the catwalk
Three of the four girls met this week. But instead of exchanging catwalk tips, the discussion turned to cattle sales.
Judging for the crown begins on Sunday when the girls will be grilled on local knowledge and the cattle industry.
Out-of-town contestant Jac McLaurin is taking her preparation quite seriously. She's even learnt how to lead cattle.
"I reckon I have a bit of a gift for it," she said with a giggle.
Ms McLaurin, of Murwillumbah, said it was nice to meet the other girls. Everyone was very friendly and no-one was really 'out to win'.
If contestant Agnieszka Domanska wins the title it could make front-page news in Poland.
Ms Domanska moved to Australia from Poland 15 months ago and has been working in a Richmond Dairies laboratory.
She plans to move back home soon and thinks the title of Miss Beef Week Queen would be a nice momento.
But home-grown Rebecca Scofield may have a bit of an edge over her competition, which includes Brooke Winterton, of Casino. This is the second time Rebecca has contested the competition and said she had re-entered to prove a point.
"I've had a son since the last time I entered the contest and wanted to prove that a mum could enter and maybe win," she said.
The winner of Miss Beef Week will be announced on Saturday, May 31.
