Calf Club NZ 2018 A Success! Lets Make 2019 Even Bigger!

2018 was a big year for our entire industry, we banded together, fought back and together we kept our beloved Calf Clubs alive. With no signs of M-Bovis slowing down at this stage we are getting ready to make 2019 an even bigger year!

Last year we developed the competition, created a fantastic network of people and had over 140 people submit entries into Calf Club NZ. 2018 Entries This year we have more time to plan and together with existing infrastructure we aim to make Calf Club NZ 2019 even bigger!

Age Groups:

We will have a Pre-school, Primary/Intermediate and High-school age groups. We will release more information in the next week or so about this. Registering now not only ensures your eligibility to participate but it helps us get up and running. We have already received over 250 kids registrations and we haven’t even approached any schools yet! If your school is planning on cancelling it’s calf club send them a link to our website and get in touch!

Why Is This Important?

Due to the M-Bovis breakout in New Zealand it has come to our attention that there are many schools that will be unable to participate in calf clubs this year. We believe that many important skills and ethics are taught through this amazing experience and the M-Bovis breakout should not take this away from the kids. This is a vital link to the dairy farming industry and it needs to be preserved.

While we would prefer to keep calf days going at schools in the current situation we are going to provide an online independent fun solution for anyone wishing to enter! If your local calf club is still going ahead you are more than welcome to join in with Calf Club NZ’s online competition.

This is an independent Calf Club that is being developed by farmers for farmer.
