Brantford, Ontario and Guelph, Ontario – May 8, 2023 –
Semex and Holstein Canada are pleased to announce their collaborative support of the 2023 Young Breeders School (YBS).
Held since 1999, YBS is an annual educational event designed to help train young people aged 13-25 regarding the Holstein breed. The three-day training includes courses on animal preparation, nutrition, judging, showmanship, marketing, genetic selection and leadership. Participants stay with families from the host region, fostering cultural understanding and life-long friendships. The event culminates with a multi-day competition in which participants put their learnings into practice, with awards given to top individuals for showmanship, conformation and country.
This year’s event will be held in Battice, Belgium August 30-September 3.
Congratulations to the individuals who will be representing Canada at the 2023 YBS:
