Holstein Canada is pleased to announce that Adam Liddle will judge the National Black & White Holstein Show and Jeff Stephens will judge the National Red & White Show in 2023. Exhibitors from the past three National Holstein Shows selected Mr. Liddle and Mr. Stephens to judge the Black & White and Red & White Holstein Shows respectively at the 2023 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF).

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, exhibitors returned to the 2022 RAWF with comradery and excitement. Record breaking numbers were exhibited in the 2022 Black &White and Red &White Shows at the 100th Anniversary of the RAWF.
