The Southwestern Breeders Cup will be awarded to the Grand Champion Female of the show.  Inscribed on the trophy are the names of the Foundation Brown Swiss Breeders.  These Breeders, some who are no longer with us, were instrumental in the progression of the Brown Swiss breed in the surrounding states.  Each year there will be names added to the trophy.  If you have suggestions, please let us know.
