PHOTO REQUIREMENTSYour entry must be accompanied by a professionally-taken 5x7 side-shot or digital photograph taken in the current show season and must show the stage of lactation the cow was in when she competed. A Senior Yearling can be nominated in both the milking & non-milking class but, her show winnings are only applicable to the chosen stage. (ie) A yearlingcould qualify pre-freshening and then qualify after freshening and be eligible for both classes. BUT you must have a picture freshened and nonmilking. It is imperative to denote stage of heifer at time of showing as Milking or Non-Milking when listing show results. Exhibitors may submit three (3) individual pictures of the members of your Breeder’s Herd and Junior Breeder’s Herd; however, group pictures will still be accepted. Photos must be taken in the 2018 show season, showing the stage of lactation.

SELECTIONAll qualifying entries received by the deadline will be submitted to a panel of 18 judges who will place their top six in each category, with the following point system: 1st (9 points), 2nd (6 points), 3rd (4 points), 4th (3 points), 5th (2 points) and 6th (1 point). Judges with qualifying entries in the class are blocked from voting on that class. Additionally, 12 randomly- selected voting results will be compiled to determine the All–Ontario winner for each class. Entries not in the top 2, but receiving over 29 points, will be recognized as Honorable Mention. Prior to voting, an effort will be made to allow each entrant 48 hours to review the accuracy of their entry via a live link, as well as view others in the class. Entrants will be notified of final results via e-mail and/or a text message. The results will be published in the Winter 2018 issue of The LinkMagazine. Presentation of awards will be made at the Ontario Holstein Branch Annual meeting in February 2018. Results will be considered unofficial and cannot be published by any other company until after presentations are made.
