Borthwick Trophy

From the early 19th century, English meat exporter Thomas Borthwick & Son encouraged the production of quality beef by awarding prizes at agricultural shows throughout Australia. The Borthwick perpetual trophy was introduced in 1953 to award the Fat Cattle Champion with the winner being judged from the best team of three steers under three years old. The winning team was the one that gained the highest aggregate score from both the live and carcase judging.
