2018 Waikato A&P Show On-farm Dairy Competition
The Show will look a bit different this year due to the implications of M.Bovis and the Waikato A & P Show has made the difficult decision to not hold the Dairy Section competition on-site for 2018. Instead we have created an on-farm judging alternative.
This competition is open to any exhibitor who has competed at the Waikato in the previous 5 years and lives within 180kms of Claudelands, Hamilton.
The show schedule has a reduced number of classes and will only be judged within Breed.
We also have three judges travelling from Australia who will adjudicate the Ayrshire, Jersey, Holstein Friesian & Combined Breeds sections. The Holstein Friesian Judge will judge the Combined Breeds section as well as the Holstein Friesians and the Futurity Class. The highest placed Youth Member (aged under 26 years) in each class will also receive a rosette.
Judges will travel to Breeders’ farms on the 24th & 25th October 2018.
On Saturday 27th October, there will be a presentation to winners, a BBQ and video sale on-site at Claudelands where everyone is invited to attend.
