Our National Junior Holstein Photo Contest is underway. We're looking for photos that showcase the Holstein breed—and its people—at their best. Maybe you have taken photos at your farm or at one of the many Junior Holstein activities you're involved with that illustrate the values and attributes of the Holstein industry—we want to see them!

All images must include at least one Holstein animal and should illustrate the best attributes and values of the Holstein industry. Although it is not required, contestants may select from the following themes:

  • Scenes around the farm
  • Pasture scenes
  • People with Holsteins
  • Holstein activities
  • Kid with calves
  • Seasonal
Entries must be received by January 5, 2016.
