Holstein Association USA (HAUSA) is planning a 2016 Judges Conference in Syracuse, NY, Friday, April 8, in conjunction with the Spring Dairy Carousel. The conference is scheduled from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Coliseum at the New York State Fairgrounds.
The conference will include judging classes as well as classroom time and lunch. Participants will judge six high-quality Holstein classes, one of which they will be assigned to give reasons on. A panel of officials will give attendees who meet the minimum requirements a 'satisfactory' rating.
Those planning to apply for the HAUSA Judges lists in the future must first attend and receive a satisfactory rating at a HAUSA Judges Conference before submitting an application. Individuals on the HAUSA Judges List must have attended and received a satisfactory rating at a HAUSA Judges Conference within a five-year period.
Attendees at the Judges Conference must be at least 22 years of age by day of the conference. The fee to attend is $50 for pre-registrants (closing two weeks before the conference) and $100 for late registrants.
