Black and White Youth Auction

Are you keen to support our youth and young breeders’ programmes and have a night off the farm?

Holstein Friesian NZ is holding its popular Black and White Youth Auction on 14 October 2020.

The event will utilise the online selling platform bidr to auction about 25 lots. The auctioneer will be Jamie Cunninghame from PGG Wrightson.

Branches are holding member dinners and social events, using Zoom to connect to the main event in the Waikato.
