Standard Agreement for Exhibitors at WHA Sponsored Shows

Note to exhibitors: Owners of all animals exhibited at the 2020 District and Championship Shows must be WHA members in good standing. Renewal memberships must be paid by May 15, 2020. If renewal of membership is not paid by May 15, 2020, a $50 late fee will be added. Out of state partners must also be paid members of the Wisconsin Holstein Association in order to show a partnership animal(s) at any WHA show. Along with the $50 membership fee there is a $50 show fee that must be paid before any animal owned by the out-of-state member is shown at a District or the Wisconsin Summer Championship Show. 

District Shows at this time are not canceled due to COVID-19. However, this evolving situation is being watched closely by our staff. The most current information regarding event cancellations can be found here or on the WHA Facebook page. Those with questions can contact the office at 800-223-4369.
