HA Board incorporates Show Ring Code of Ethics into By-laws

At the May meeting the Board of Holstein Australia moved to incorporate the All Dairy Breeds Show Ring Committee’s national code of ethics into its By-laws. Holstein Australia has been a long-time supporter

of an all the dairy breed’s national approach to the showing of dairy cattle and believes the general public’s favourable perception of how dairy farmers care for their animals stands out in the show ring.

“While our by-laws adequately addressed the ethical showing of Holsteins; the board believed it should incorporate what is now considered to be the best and most widely accepted industry standard for show ring ethics in Australia.” Said Federal President David Johnston.
