Holstein Association USA
Judges Conference

UPDATE FOR 2021: Due to current health concerns,
Holstein Association USA will not hold a Judges Conference in 2021.
We will waive the five-year requirement to attend
a judges conference for the 2022 judges list.

The annual conference is a one-day event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include judging classes
as well as classroom time.

Judges conference attendees must be at least 22 years of age by day of the conference.

The fee to attend will be $50 for pre-registrants (closing two weeks before the conference),
and $100 for late registrants.

A panel of officials will give attendees meeting the minimum requirements a "satisfactory" rating.

Individuals on the Holstein Association USA Judges List must have attended and received a satisfactory rating at a Holstein Association USA Judges Conference within a five-year period.

Those planning to apply for the lists in the future must first attend and receive a satisfactory rating at a Holstein Association USA Judges Conference before submitting an application.
