Holstein Québec Picnic

For over 76 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!

Holstein Québec, in collaboration with the Shefford-Brome Club, is pleased to invite you to the 76th edition of the Holstein Québec Picnic, which will take place on July 16th 2022.
