Presenting the Governor’s Cup at the 2021 Perth Royal Show

It was the Governor’s Cup presentation that almost didn’t happen, with the winner busy delivering a baby goat as the formalities began!

Thankfully Trevor Blight managed to welcome the new arrival just in time to hear the Governor announce his name as the 2021 Perth Royal Show Governor’s Cup winner.

Trevor and his mum Shirley, from Dandalee Park Dairy Goats took out the Show’s top prize which is awarded to the exhibitor with the most points in livestock exhibits and rewards both excellence and consistency while also promoting the quest for higher standards.

The Blights are multi generational Perth Royal Show exhibitors and were thrilled to be named Governor’s Cup winners, though they came close to being upstaged by their new arrival, aptly named ‘Dandalee Park Royale’.

Patron of the Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia, the Governor congratulated the Blight’s on their success, whilst also thanking the RASWA staff and many volunteers for putting on another successful show and continuing the event’s vital role connecting city to country.

“To see so many people enjoying themselves today and across the week, and also to witness our innovative agricultural industry on display really does reinforce how important our annual Perth Royal Show really is.” the Governor said.

The Governor also attended the President’s Lunch to mark the final day of the 2021 Perth Royal Show.
