In 1824 the Agricultural Society assessed 130 head of cattle and awarded a prize of ‘A Piece of Plate’ valued at 40 Spanish Dollars to Reverend Samuel Marsden for the Best Colonial Bred Bull. George Cox Esq received ‘A Piece of Plate’ valued at 20 Spanish Dollars for his Best Colonial Bred Heifer.

Many different breeds have joined the Competition over the past 200 years, including Poll Herefords in 1935, Charolais in 1952, Simmental in 1976, and Chianina in 1978.

One of the most prominent and prestigious cattle shows in Australia today, the Sydney Royal Cattle Show judges six breeds of dairy cattle and up to 30 breeds of beef cattle and attracts exhibitors from all over Australia along with international judges and interested buyers. The value of a Sydney Royal ribbon is immense and has led to record sale prices for winning exhibitors.
