The Pennsylvania Holstein Association’s annual spring show will be held May 1 at the Centre Country Grange Fair Park in Centre Hall.

A new entry system, by Showman, will be used.

Showman is a web app that simplifies the process of running a show and is tailored to each individual event. Participants will find all things show-related on this site, including rules, health requirements, lodging, etc.

Exhibitors will go to Showman.app and create an account to log in and begin the entry process. If you have used the system before for any other show, you do not have to create a new account.

No paper entries will be accepted this year and the new online system does have self-help tutorials if a participant has a question.

A Summer Jr-2 class has been added in place of the Unfresh Jr-2 class. Premier awards will be given at the show, and exhibitors are asked to sign up for consideration the day of the show.

Entries are through April 11 at the lowest fee of $25. From April 12-17 the cost is $40. Entries from April 18 until noon on April 30 will still be accepted but will cost $100 each.

Barns will be ready for move-in on Wednesday, April 28, beginning at 9 a.m. All cattle must be in place by noon on Friday, April 30. Check-in will run from 9 a.m. on Thursday until noon on Friday and will take place in the show arena. All cattle must be checked in by noon on Friday.

Show day on May 1 starts at 9 a.m. with Phil Topp of Botkins, Ohio, serving as the judge.

At this point, spectators are discouraged from attending due to pandemic guidelines.
