New England States Holstein Association

Our association is comprised of Holstein breeders and enthusiasts throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

We actively work to encourage and support the Holstein dairy industry through breed shows, farm tours and panel discussions, junior programs and activities, and publication of information about the breed and dairying in general. In addition, we offer and assistance and cooperation with youth organizations, governmental agencies and private groups interested in Holstein cattle and better dairying.
