Last year's Youth winner, one of 11 All-Australian classes
Despite the recent COVID-19 restrictions cancelling Royal and local shows in the back half of the competition year the Semex-Holstein Australia All-Australian Photographic Competition will still go ahead.
Holstein Australia COO, David Jupp, says the “All-Australian” is one of the most prestigious awards for members and showcases the best Holsteins shown around the country year-on-year, forming a record of the best of breed for current and future generations.
"It’s a major achievement to qualify and the place-getters are up there with the best in the world. If you have shown Holsteins during the current competition year I would encourage you to enter,” says David.
“With a halt put on all shows since March due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’re really keen to attract as many entries as possible to showcase the best of the Holstein breed as we do each competition.”
Well known to many members, the Semex-Holstein Australia All-Australian Photographic competition recognises excellence in conformation and showing and is open to all Holstein Australia Herdbook and Appendix 1,2 and 3 females that have been successfully shown since July 2019.
To enter simply download the entry form and competition rules, making sure to complete your animal’s Herdbook number, class entered and qualifying show and submit the entry along with your photo.
