News from the Holstein Foundation: Showring Ready workbook

We are excited to announce a new addition to our popular series of free educational workbooks - Showring Ready. This booklet is a beginner's guide to showing dairy cattle and is geared toward youth getting started showing.

The book takes readers from Selecting a Project Animal, to Caring for Your Show Animal at Home, Preparing for the Show, and At the Show. Each section is filled with helpful tips and guidance on washing, halter training, showmanship and fitting an animal, written in easy-to-understand language, with several pictures and diagrams. Helpful resources and activities are included in the workbook, including height and weight benchmarks for Holstein heifers, dairy cattle health and management, and budgeting worksheets.
