The Breed Development and Conformation Committee (BDCC) strives to maintain the integrity of the Holstein breed in Australia and in doing so regularly reviews the way the Association implements its rules and by-laws.
The Associations by-laws aim to encourage good animal husbandry and showmanship at shows and sales of registered Holsteins. Members who exhibit or sell registered Holsteins, their fitters, agents, or other representatives should abide by these by-laws and ensure the reputation and image of the breed remain positive to spectators and auction participants.
Holstein Australia endorses the All Dairy Breeds Show Ring Code of Ethics that has the primary purpose to ensure that all animals presented for exhibition will be in their natural conformation and structure, free from any alteration or modification caused by unethical fitting practices.
