The Eastern Ontario district Dairy Cattle Evaluation Clinic will be held Wed., July 6 at the Chesterville Fairgrounds. The Dundas County Club has taken on the responsibility of organizing this year’s event. Formerly known as Judging Conferences, Ontario Holsteins encourages all dairy producers and dairy enthusiasts to attend. The Invitational Official Clinic will be held at the same location that date.
The day is organized annually with the purpose of educating breeders, 4-H’ers and all individuals interested in learning about dairy cattle evaluation skills, proper conformation, judging techniques, showmanship and breed trends. Attendees will not be required to give reasons unless they wish to do so.
Coaches of 4-H Judging Teams, who plan to compete at the 2011 Inter-County Dairy Judging Competition to be held at the Metcalfe Fairgrounds on August 3, are encouraged to participate with their teams.
Counties that have at least two or four 4-H members register attendance at this judging school can apply to the Ontario Joint Dairy Breeds to have one or two team registrations paid for the Inter-County Judging Competition.
Registration is at 9 a.m. and the clinic’s first class will start at 10 a.m. sharp. The day will run to approximately 3:30 p.m. There is no registration fee for 4-H members. Additional participants are $10 and lunch will be available on the grounds for $10.
