*** The New Hampshire Holstein Show will be held on August 1st at the North Haverhill Fairgrounds. This is a VERY different show than in the past; the Swiss and Shorthorns, who used to alternate with the Holsteins, are not holding a state show, so this will be a stand-alone show. Junior Holstein showmanship will be held the morning of the show before the type classes. The annual NH Holstein Club Raffle will also take place the day of the show. 4-H qualifying classes will be held at various fairs around the state.
