Cancellation of the Quebec Spring Show 2020

It is with great regret that the organizing committee of Quebec Spring Show as well as the board of directors of the co-owners associations of the event, Holstein Quebec, Jersey Quebec and La Société Ayrshire du Québec, have made the decision to cancel the 6th edition of the Spring Show because of the risk of introducing and transmitting COVID-19. The 2020 edition of the Spring Show was scheduled for April 22nd, 23rd, and 24th and was going to welcome more than 300 dairy heads and 2,000 visitors to the Victoriaville Agricultural Exhibition site. 

This decision follows the announcement of the Prime minister of Quebec prohibiting all indoor gatherings of more than 250 people or which are not necessary for the next 30 days. This health recommendation comes from the fact that it has been shown that reducing gatherings is the only effective way to lower the potential contagion curve for COVID-19 and not to overload our health care system. 

The government is asking people to be responsible in order to ensure public safety. The decision to cancel the Spring Show is therefore made in order not to expose the exhibitors, visitors as well as the sponcsors and partners of the event to unnecessary risks. The Spring Show organizing committee had to make a decision before costs realted to the event were no longer reimbursable. 

We are aware of the time that our exhibitors have already put into preparing their animals and of the consequences on the market, but at the government’s request, civil liability takes precedence. 

People who have paid for their registration will be reimbursed in full. 

We take this opportunity to thank all those who support the event and we can’t wait to see you all next year. Our objective, as always, is to provide an unforgettable experience for all dairy farmers. These are exceptional circumstances and we encourage you to take the necessary measures to take care of yourself and your loved ones. In addition, for any information on the evolution of the situation, do not hesitate to consult our website www.quebec.ca/coronavirus

Summary of the consensus teleconference relative to the Red and White Holstein Show at the 2018 Spring Show

A teleconference with Red and White Holstein breeders was held on 22 February 2018. The meeting included a discussion regarding the future of the Red and White Holstein Show at the 2018 Spring Show. At the end of the meeting, the breeders and the Quebec Spring Show Committee agreed that:

• A Red and White Holstein Show (R&W), distinct from the Holstein Show, will be held at the Spring Show if a minimum of 40 animals are present on the grounds. In order to notify breeders, we ask that R&W Holstein exhibitors enter their animals or confirm the number of animals they intend to bring to the Spring Show by 16 March.

Enter your animals by 16 March at https://www.assistexpo.ca/expo-printemps or confirm your participation at hebert@holsteinquebec.com, specifying the actual number of animals you plan to bring to the Show and whether they are heifers or cows.

Another teleconference meeting will be held on 19 March, during which a decision will be made based on the number of animals entered at that time.

• The R&W Holstein Show will be held on Thursday, 12 April, with classes alternating with those of the Holstein Show in order to increase visibility for R&W Holstein breeders.

• The Spring Show reserves the right to combine classes to ensure a minimum of five (5) animals per class, in order to enhance the quality of the show. Moreover, both a Junior Championship and a Grand Championship will be organized for Red and White Holsteins.

• Should breeders so wish, R&W Holsteins shown in a R&W Holstein class may be shown free of charge in the corresponding Holstein class (held immediately afterwards).

Next teleconference: 19 March at 10 am
