The 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 28 June, several daughter groups and/or theme groups will be selected to enter the show ring at the 2019 edition of the NRM dairy show.


The complete list of cows in the progeny groups that will be taking part in NRM 2019 will be published in the catalogue, in the run-up to the event.
