Open to members between five and 21 years old, this competition offers young members the opportunity to show calves at A & P shows (including NZ Dairy Event) and gain points. Further points can be earned by entering a photo in the Black & White Youth Photo Competition.

There will be prizes for the first-place getters in each age group, along with the awarding of either the Arapeta or Kingsland Trophy (dependent on the age group). The overall winner (the youth member with the highest points across both age groups) will receive a live calf.

It’s simple – register at the beginning of the show season with the Holstein Friesian New Zealand office, and then fill in the logbook provided (counter-signed by an official) every time you enter the ring in a calf class at an A & P Show and/or NZ Dairy Event. You do not have to exhibit the same calf at each show but you must only record details of animals you have exhibited in your logbook.
