This history of the Ahuwhenua Trophy Competition looks at the farming and business from 1933 to 2013. It sets out the establishment of the trophy, the ups and downs of the competition and the triumphs of the winners, and considers the competition in the context of Maori land development policies and practices over the last eighty years. The trophy has come to be seen as the main agricultural award in New Zealand for all sheep, beef and dairy farmers, and its attention to environmental standards and protecting land and its resources for future generations is widely recognised in the agricultural sector.
