About this object

This is a framed and glazed photograph of Allandale Trixie who was a champion cow for her owner Mr R. S. Weir of Seaward Downs. We believe this to be an Ayshire cow.

On the back of the frame is recorded, 'She has a record of over 500 lbs of fat together with being one of New Zealand's greatest show cows carrying a wonderful udder. Trixie was also famous for her show ring performances. One of the first Royal Show Champions in 1905. This cow was well known in Southland for being the most perfect uddered cow of any breed. Famous show winner against the very first ?. Trixie's family are all well known and have records for over 400 lb of fat, big number of descendants for this cow. She is now in Mr Fletcher's herd and is still going strong'
