Master Breeder rewards Holstein members whose herds achieve a high standard in both classification and production.
Cows and heifers in each herd are allocated points according to the criteria set out in the table below. Only animals carrying the member prefix and which are recorded as having produced a lactation within the last two years are eligible for inclusion in the calculation.
A herd achieving an average score of 4 points or more and a total points score of 150 or more, will qualify the member as a Master Breeder.
In order to apply, members should contact Darren Todd on 01923 695 275 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or via membership services.
NB. Members will need to submit by email or post, a milk recording statement confirming the cows currently present in their herd at the time of application. Members are however, not required to calculate points for their animals themselves, as this will be carried out by a Holstein UK computer program.
