“The SWEET SUMMERTIME sale will have a group of mostly heifers & some cows from both Hamming Holsteins, Vernon, BC & Lucky Hill Dairy, Lacombe, AB. Both of these herds have invested in the cow families that have proven themselves over & over! Neither of the herds need much of an introduction since they have both proven their breeding capability. Don’t miss out on June 24th-25th!”

A message from the GAHC Board:
Despite the best efforts of our show committee members in conjunction with the Lethbridge exhibition, continuing health restriction measures will not currently allow for us to host our annual Show and Family BBQ at this time.
Board members will be delivering trophies and certificates for our awards in the coming weeks and we will send out the full results after the trophies have been presented.
We look forward to getting together in a formal setting and we are hopeful we can organize an evening with the barn cow event (late summer-Fall 2021)

Congratulations to Sylvia Slingerland on receiving the 2020 Alberta Holstein Scholarship!
Sylvia is part of the Diamond Park Dairy team and is in her 2nd year of the Agriculture Biotechnology program at the University of Lethbridge. Although we were unable to present her with her award at the AGM, board member and Youth Committee Chairperson, Randy Slomp was able to stop in and congratulate Sylvia on her achievement.
“Looking into the future, upon completing my degree in Agriculture Biotechnology, I want to apply to Vet school. It has always been a dream of mine to be able to provide excellent care to large animals that are sick or in need. It pulls at my heart, when I look at a sick animal on our farm or any farm that I am visiting, and not be able to help it.”
We look forward to the 2021 applications coming in this fall and are hopeful we will be able to award up to FOUR scholarships this year!
