BRATTLEBORO, Vt., April 9, 2020 — “These are certainly unprecedented times. Canceling the June 2020 National Holstein Convention, set to take place in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was not a matter we took lightly,” said Holstein Association USA President Corey Geiger.
“We are grateful to the Pennsylvania Holstein Association’s leaders who were able to work out details to host the 2021 convention at the same site next year. As last year’s national convention co-chair, I truly appreciate the time, talent, and treasure that our friends from the Keystone State have placed into hosting their fellow Holstein breeders,” he continued. “I personally look forward to being in Pennsylvania next year.”
“At this time in which the majority of Americans are conducting only necessary functions to limit the spread of the COVID-19 and protect public health, we also must plan for the time when we focus on restoring our damaged economic health,” continued the 65th president of the association. “For that reason, I am appointing a special committee to immediately study conducting the 135th Annual Meeting of the Holstein Association USA at a later date this year. This committee will focus on critical elements for both juniors and adults. The meeting will be planned and guided by the staff and directors of Holstein Association USA,” continued the Mukwonago, Wis., president.
“History can be our guide on these matters. Ironically, W.S. Moscrip called the 59th Annual Convention of the Holstein-Friesian Association of America to order on June 6, 1944. That was the same day Allied Troops stormed the beaches of Normandy and began liberating Europe,” recalled Geiger of the Association’s history. “Dairy farmers have always been essential to our nation’s health. If 98-plus-percent of delegates could gather in 1944, we can plan for a day this year that we can safely meet and conduct a no-frills, in-person annual meeting.   If it is determined an in-person meeting would not be feasible under specific state and national guidelines regarding the coronavirus situation, a virtual electronic-based annual meeting will be considered,” he continued.
“More details will be shared at a later day as we comply with all the standards of the Association’s bylaws.” 2020 Membership Renewals – REMINDER! Don’t forget to renew your membership. Forms can be found HERE.
