Win a Kindle Fire in the 2015 Holstein Junior Mating Contest!

Brattleboro, Vt. (July 16, 2015)…Are you a Junior who enjoys selecting the best bulls for your family’s Holstein herd? Then the 2015 Holstein Association USA Junior Mating Contest is for you. Rules are now online at www.holsteinusa.com/juniors.

The contest challenges Junior Holstein members to analyze cattle, use genetic information, and express themselves in writing. Contestants plan a mating for a specific cow based on her physical appearance, pedigree, and performance information, with the goal of creating a functionally sound, profitable calf. Most of all, the contest is meant to be fun, interesting, and educational.

The contest is divided into three age divisions. Prizes will be awarded to the top three mating selections in each age division. One Grand Prize winner will receive a Kindle Fire tablet. Entries must be received by September 15, 2015.

Any National Junior Holstein member is eligible to compete. Here are the divisions:

● Junior (ages 9-13 as of January 1)

● Intermediate (ages 14-17 as of January 1)

● Senior (ages 18-21 as of January 1)
