The show

show
At the NRM Show you will see Dutch cattle breeding at its very best. At IJsselhallen, top breeders will be presenting their cows for judging by an expert jury. This judging is the highlight of the NRM for most cattle farmers. The animals are of extremely high calibre, which makes the judging all the more exciting. So winning a first prize is often a very emotional experience for finalists.

Top performers

On Friday the focus at the NRM will be on progeny group presentations. Various progeny groups are expected to be up for scrutiny.
On Saturday several hundred Black & Whites and Red & Whites will be treading the boards for the individual judgings. From the two categories the expert jury will choose one winner that will go home with the title of NRM Champion.

Progeny groups

On Friday 30 June, no fewer than 14 daughter groups and two theme groups will enter the show ring at the 2017 edition of the NRM dairy show. The groups have been entered by six different breeding organisation or importers.

Plenty to see in daughter groups
Fourteen daughter groups have been entered for showing at the NRM 2017: seven heifer groups and seven groups comprising second-calf or older animals.
The cattle represent three extremely interesting red-and-white groups and 11 black-and-white groups of the same high calibre, including progeny of some of the most widely used bulls in recent years. This will be the first public appearance for practically all of the daughter groups, who all have scored outstandingly for NVI and total confirmation (see below).

Theme groups
This year, CRV will be presenting a theme group of embryo donors, by part from the Delta breeding programme, on Friday 30 June. AI-Total will also be showing a theme group representing its breeding programme with daughters sired by various bulls.

All groups present at the show
At the event, the daughter groups and theme groups can also be seen at the exhibitors’ stands, so visitors to the event have the chance to take a close look at the animals on Friday and Saturday.
