New Shorthorn award: The Mohmar Trophy

Highland Wagyu, Mohmar Trophy, Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society

We’re delighted to be supporting the Beef Shorthorn Society by creating this new trophy for the ‘most successful herd’ awarded on a points system (see image) across four qualifying shows – the Royal Ulster, Royal Highland, Royal Welsh and the UK Beef Shorthorn Championships at the Great Yorkshire Show.

We’ve commissioned Perthshire sculptor and artist Lucy Poett, who produced the life-size Drover Memorial Statue at Dingwall Auction Mart, to create this special trophy of a Shorthorn bull’s head, which is modelled on our very own Shorthorn bull, Quoiggs Extra Special.

The bronze is currently being sculpted and the Mohmar Trophy – named for our herd – will be presented to the winner fresh from the casting foundry as a brand new award, along with £1000 prize money.
