As a requirement for an official show, ear tags must be in the cow’s ear and original registration papers must accompany the cow. If the producer is unable to show these documents the cow may be disqualified from the show. Please bring all necessary papers on the day of show. They will be checked by a representative of the Alberta Holstein Association (Holstein Canada).
All exhibitors must be dressed in white shirts and white trousers free of colors, letters, logos or labels. Stall cards are the responsibility of the exhibitor; they are not mandatory but are recommended.
