Holstein Québec Picnic

For over 70 years, in July, members of the Association and their families gather for the traditional Holstein Québec Picnic. Since the event is hosted by a new region every year, it is the perfect opportunity to discover different herds.

The host club organizes various activities, in addition to the W.K. MacLeod (animal expertise) and Gladu (showman competition for youth) competitions, a wine and cheese and a roast dinner.

Be there!
