Dear Holstein members,
Welcome to the Laurentians. The Laurentian region is highly diversified and offers magnificent scenery. It is a simple matter to enjoy visiting some excellent herds, as much with regard to conformation as production, as well as holiday farms and tourist attractions of all kinds. It will be a pleasure to guide you through our vast region which extends from Laval to Maniwaki in the Upper Laurentians. Our members, very active in both breeding and marketing, will be only too happy to meet you.
In these times of change in the dairy business, we must stand together and maintain a positive outlook regarding the future of the industry. I am convinced that we have no reason to be jealous of the American model, and our farms, of a family scale typical to Quebec, will know how to remain competitive in the face of market globalization. It will be a pleasure to discuss the matter in more detail with you. We look forward to meeting you.
Sébastien Proulx, president
