Australia’s only National Judging School for 2020 is being held in Colac, Victoria from 10th to 12th March.
Hosted by Western Districts Sub-Branch, attendees successfully completing the School will be admitted to the Holstein Australia National Judges Panel.
Jenny Grey, Breed Development and Conformation Committee Chair, says: “The school will include both conformation assessment as well as sessions on the ethics of judging, expectations of Judges and the opportunity to present to the Overjudges on the final day for judging skill assessment.
