More than 100 students from 10 Universities from across Australia, the US and Japan competed in the national contest hosted by Charles Sturt University and Teys Australia.
Of the available 4600 contest points, the University of Melbourne won with an impressive 3629, followed by Murdoch University with 3622, and Charles Sturt University in third place with 3619.
The individual champion was Tim Ryan from The University of Melbourne with Haydn McKay of Charles Sturt University Wagga runner-up, and only 40 points behind.
From the line-up of finalists, 10 were selected to undertake a five-day Meat Standards Australia (MSA) training course in Brisbane later in the year.
Five of these finalists will then be selected for the Australian National meat judging team to travel to US in January 2013 to compete in the meat judging contest at Denver National Western Stock Show and complete an extensive industry tour.
Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) and the Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) were the event's major sponsors.
