Rules & Agreement Forms

Rules for showing practices are required to ensure the best interests of all involved in the dairy cattle industry. It is important that Holstein Ontario endorse good animal husbandry practices, and promote the spirit of fair play.

Show Resource Package

Throughout this COVID-19 journey, we’ve had a tremendous amount of questions, comments, and concerns shared by our members in regards to the 2020 show season. We hope the Show Resource Package we put together will help with discussions and problem-solving. It includes details on hosting an in-person show AND feedback from our Online Holstein Show. It also has important information about the coverage of insurance for events. We will also be updating it when possible/needed.
