The “Champion of the World” Competition was founded in 2012 to promote awareness, goodwill and trade between and within cattle producing countries. In 2020, there were over 1800 entries entered representing 85 countries featuring 16 breeds.

Cattle qualify for Champion of the World by winning their country’s premier breed show in each of their respective regions; North America, South America, Europe, and Asia/Africa. Judges from each region then select regional winners who then qualify to compete in the overall Champion of the World Competition. Winning Bulls are named Champion of the World and winning females are given the Miss World title.

Bos Indicus breeds and Wagyu World Champions are awarded at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo each year and the Continental and British World Champions are awarded at Farmfair International; Angus, Charolais, Galloway, Hereford, Limousin, Other Registered Breeds, Shorthorn, Simmental, and Speckle Park.

Although this awarding of World Champions is not scientific, it requires animals to be bred well, fed well, fitted well, and photographed well. The initial qualification of being a country’s premier Breed Champion ensures that it’s only quality that enters the competition.
