NY Cows of the Century Contest – Nominations Due April 11th

To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the New York Holstein Association, they are holding a contest to celebrate the tremendous Holstein cows that have called New York home over the last 100 years. This contest is for cows either bred in New York or owned at some point by New Yorkers. Nominations will be taken for the New York Cows of the Century contest until April 11th.

You are invited to nominate great New York cows – whether she made her name in the showring, or the milk tank; as the dam of great offspring, or as a genomic powerhouse; as a high-scoring barn favorite, or as a lifetime production queen. There is no category or criteria, if you think she deserves to be a New York Cow of the Century, please nominate her. Furthermore, nominations don’t need to come from the owner or breeder of a cow, if you’ve always admired a New York cow, past or present, you can submit her, and there is no limit to the number of cows you can nominate. Nominations will be judged by a panel of esteemed New York Holstein Association members. The New York Cows of the Century will then be highlighted throughout 2020 at New York Holstein Association events and through the New York Holstein News and Facebook (@NewYorkHolsteinAssociation) page.

To nominate a cow, please email her name, New York breeder or owner, and credentials to nycowsofthecentury@gmail.com or mail the application to: Lynnette Wright, 138 Grove St., North Syracuse, NY 13212, by April 11th.
