The Goodchild Trophy – Winners

The Goodchild Trophy – Winners from 1961 to present

 

The Goodchild Trophy was named after the donor ‘Daddy Goodchild’. This affectionate nickname was given to the owner of the Smithfield Poultry Trader, who had a strong interest in the farming and production of Christmas turkeys.

In 1961 he donated a trophy, to be awarded to the person  for ‘exceptional services to the farmer/butcher’ trade.

Early  ATA  winners  were Derek Kelly in 1979, Tim Denham Smith in 1980, and Tony Burlton in 1984. In 1986 the ATA were honoured with the offer from the Turkey Federation to be responsible for selecting the ‘Turkey person of the year’.

The trophy is awarded each year at the ATA  Annual Banquet and Show which takes place in November.
