The Erie County Agricultural Society is proud to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Spring Dairy Preview on May 13th & 14th in the Agriculture Discovery Center at the Fairgrounds in Hamburg, NY. This show will welcome more than 200 head of dairy cattle to the Fairgrounds from throughout the northeast and Canada.

Livestock shows, like the Spring Dairy Preview offer exhibitors the opportunity to gain pre-season experience in the show ring with their animal prior to their local county or state fairs.

Mr. Chris McCullough will travel from Juda, WI to judge the show. There will be over $3,000 to win in awards and premiums.

All animals must be registered with a breed association (i.e. The Holstein Association) in order to show. Check with breed associations for more information about registering animals.
