Holstein Australia has reluctantly taken the decision to cancel Holstein Highlights 2021, scheduled to take place in Bendigo, Victoria on 30 June.
The event has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restriction venue capacity limits and continued uncertainty over interstate travel. All Holstein Australia members and guests who have booked food and accommodation for Holstein Highlights will be contacted and a full refund arranged.
Holstein Australia CEO Rohan Butler says: “We are really disappointed as this would have been the first large-scale Holstein community event for some time, but in the circumstances, we have taken the only decision we can.
“That said, we are looking forward to meeting up with members at the Victorian Winter Fair in Bendigo at the end of the month and are working with show organisers to arrange the presentation of trophies and photographs to our All-Australian and Virtual Holstein Spectacular winners and our 2020 Master Breeders attending the fair.”
