2015 National Holstein Convention Virtual Farm Tours & Breeder Websites
The 2015 National Holstein Convention will bring nearly a 1000 Holstein enthusiasts from across the country to our state! Now is your chance to reach out to those visitors and market your farm and herd.
In conjunction with National Convention, the Convention Committee will help publicize your farm's "Pre-Convention Tour Options." Unlike previous National Conventions, there will not be organized Pre-Convention Tours. Instead, farms will have the opportunity to have a 2:30 minute video created featuring their farm and herd. The videos will be posted beginning in early Spring of 2015.
Additionally, you have the chance to create a Breeder Website that will be featured on the Illinois Holstein website and National Holstein Convention website. Click HERE for examples from the 2012 National Holstein Convention.
Lastly, all farms participating in the Virtual Tours and Breeder Websites have the option of being listed on the Illinois Breeders' Tour Map, that will list farms that will be open for tours before, during and after convnention. As a state, we will do our best to help you open your doors to the numerous people who will be passing through your part of the state! Click HERE for an example of the 2012 Breeder Tour Map.
A new section to the website has also been added. Check out the Forms section for important forms and information from the Illinois Holstein Association!
