Leading the Holstein Vision
June 22, 2020 - June 26, 2020
We are still planning to host the 2020 National Convention in Pennsylvania in June. It is important that you know we are reviewing plans day-by-day and will keep you informed of any major changes. As a precaution, we are delaying registration at this time. When the registration link is available, we will communicate through Facebook and here on our website.
We invite you to Pennsylvania for the 2020 National Holstein Convention – where we are leading the Holstein vision.
While here, you're invited to visit world-renowned farms and cattle on pre-convention and host day tours. Our nation's history is rooted here in Pennsylvania and we're offering tours that step back in time to witness Amish culture and visit the battlegrounds in Gettysburg. If you're up for a sweet adventure, check out the tour to Hersheypark.
Check back as the year goes on for more details on this exciting 2020 National Holstein Convention! Follow along on social media with our event hashtag #2020HolsteinVision and join in with your own fun posts leading up to the event!
