The Australian Cow of the Year is open to all females in the Holstein Australia Herdbook or Appendix. Nominations can be received from the owner or any third party, including sub-branches. Nominations should feature high production, high classification and exceptional progeny, but do not necessarily have to be a show cow. Entries must be accompanied by a photograph.

To qualify, the cow must have been born in Australia and be alive (in milk or dry) at closing date for nominations. Any animals in which members of the committee or their families have an interest may not be entered in the competition. Previous winners cannot be renominated. 

Nominations are judged by the Breed Development and Conformation Committee and two extra judges chosen at the discretion of the committee. The extra judges cannot represent more than one year in a row. Judging will be conducted at one of the two meetings conducted by the committee each year. Each nomination is assessed on information provided, including progeny, classification, awards, lactation information and any associated material.
