Purebred Holstein Friesian Society
The Purebred Holstein Friesian Society of New Zealand wish to extend an invitation to fellow Holstein Friesian enthusiasts to become members of the Society.
Like minded people have formed this Society with the desire to focus on the capabilities of Purebred Holstein Friesian cattle. The not for profit Society is totally and unashamedly cow focused; as members we believe that Incorporated Societies are just that, incorporated with the aim of developing, in this case, the Purebred Cow.
We also believe ‘we aren’t reinventing the wheel, we are just fixing it’. We now have the vehicle to put it right, so join in and be part of it. The principles we have adopted are the same principles that our forebears had when they first formed the Association in 1910.
The Society offers the following notable features :
|● DATABASE||The Society’s Database and Herd Book has besides the registrations, has recording features such as type traits, final scores, four generation pedigrees with provision for another five maternal dams and production details are also included. Entry to the database is free and the registration of either male or female progeny is at the one off cost of $7.00 per animal.|
annual membership fees for the Society are -
Full Membership $90.00
Limited Membership $30.00
This is the only fee charged, there is no cow fee.
|● CLASSIFICATION||The Society offers a classification service to members at a fee of $5.00 per head and a $20.00 herd fee. Males and females will be awarded type scores up to Excellent 97.|
