Anyone currently on the list, or planning to apply in the future, must have attended and received a satisfactory rating at a Holstein Association USA Judges Conference within a 3-year period to be eligible.

One conference will be held in 2014, in Columbus, Ohio, on March 27, in conjunction with the Mid-East Spring National Holstein Show. The conference will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is open to anyone 22 years of age or older. Registration is required and can be done on the Holstein Association USA web site with a credit card. Pre-registration is $50, and closes two weeks before the conference, on March 13. Late registrants and walk-ups will be accepted for a $100 registration fee.
