    Chance to Walk With Semex Elite in Toronto

Semex UK is calling upon members of the Holstein Young Breeders who think they can ‘walk the walk’ to step forward and be in with a chance to represent the UK in the prestigious Semex Walk of Fame progeny showcase held at the Canadian Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in November.

Exhibitors from around Canada show their prize cows in the National Holstein Show.

National Holstein Show

Semex and Holstein UK are hosting the nation-wide competition to find two deserving young breeders who will join a team of talented young representatives from countries across the world, including Germany, Mexico, Japan and Australia, tasked with the vital and challenging responsibility of looking after the elite cows being shown in the Semex Walk of Fame at the Fair.

In addition to the unique learning opportunity and experience gained by the young person, the successful applicants will win a trip to the Royal Winter Fair worth over £1,000. The Fair is widely regarded as one of the top agricultural events in the world, and is held in Toronto from 2nd – 12th November 2007.

Peter Arthur, Marketing Manager for Semex UK, believes the competition is a great opportunity for young breeders to gain hands-on experience at a world-class event:

“As national sponsor of the Holstein Young Breeders we are keen to support the future talent of the dairy industry through various initiatives. This competition, now in its third year, demonstrates our commitment to developing the talents of our promising young breeders. We are delighted to offer enthusiastic young farmers the chance to learn valuable techniques in how to market highly bred cattle to an international audience. It is a challenging but extremely rewarding and enjoyable role and I would encourage those interested to get their applications in as quickly as possible!“

Applicants can download competition forms or apply online at, or pick up an entry form from their local Holstein Young Breeders club. The closing date for applications is 10th August 2007.
