New Canadian Champions for Production

More What's New

Holstein Canada, Brantford, Ont., announced on January 23rd six new Canadian Champion records for production for 2017. Canadian Champions are awarded to Holstein cows (75% pure or higher) that surpass the previous all-time highest performance for milk, fat, protein, or total BCA in their age at calving category. If more than one animal in a given year exceeds the previous highest level, only the top individual will be recognized as a new Canadian Champion.
