The Victorian Committee was recently given a badge from Noni McDonald wife of the late Geoff McDonald (Lochaber Beef Shorthorns).  The committee agreed that it would be fitting to incorporate this badge on a replica trophy of the larger Silver Cup trophy awarded to the Grand Champion Beef Shorthorn bull;  the inscription on the Silver Cup reads “The Shorthorn Society of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland Silver Cup is to be competed for in perpetuity and the name of the winning animal and the exhibitors name to be engraved on it each year.  The Cup is to remain the property of the RASV”. 
The replica trophy is to be kept by the winning exhibitor for a year and will be suitably engraved.
