2012 NEHCA Fall Gathering & Show
SPECIAL NOTICE: *In the Summer 2012 Edition of the Chanter on page 11 it is advertised that there will be a Steer Class at the 2012 Fall Show. This is false. There will not be a Steer Class for the open show this year. It is being considered as an option for 2013.*
In October, NEHCA will host its annual fall get-together to promote our breed and enjoy the camaraderie such a gathering brings. Once again the event will be held at the Eastern States Exposition, Mallary Arena, 1305 Memorial Ave., West Springfield, Massachusetts 01089.

We are going all out to encourage owners who haven’t shown their cows before to give it a try. If you want or need help at the show, please contact Greg Markwell. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. He has been in contact with a number of experienced Highland owners who have shown previously and volunteered to help you at the show in everything from grooming and setting up your stall to ring tips. The point of this effort is we want you to have a great time, take the big leap and use this opportunity to get into the show ring.
