The Black & White Youth Committee is seeking nominations of 2020 born heifers for the HFNZ Elite Heifer Raffle. Heifers must be DNA parent verified and born between 1 January – 15 September 2020. The committee is after a range of high quality heifers; including show animals, high BW Holstein Friesians and heifers from strong cow families.


The aim is to raise funds to send a group of young breeders to the next European Young Breeders School in Belgium.
