About this object

This silver cup was awarded by the New Zealand Co-operative Rennet Co Ltd and is known as the Perpetual Challenge Cup. On the reverse we read that it was 'Presented to Southland A & P Association'.

Awards were made between 1949 and 1978 to dairy companies throughout Southland. However, as the cup itself is dated to 1929 it is possible that it once stood on a higher base and previous recipients were recorded there.
