HYB Australian Exchange 2019

Would you like to be the next HYB member to visit Australia on an all-expenses-paid trip?

For the third year running, Holstein Young Breeders have teamed up with Holstein Australia to provide one of our HYB members* with an all-expenses-paid trip to Australia in January 2019. You could find yourself visiting some of Australia's largest dairy farms and seeing some of the country's top tourist attractions and natural wonders.

The winner will be required to arrive in Australia at the beginning of January and it is expected that the exchange will last for around one month. Dates will be confirmed closer to the time. 

The winner will be met by their host family upon arriving in Australia before attending Youth Camp, which is very similar to a HYB rally. At Youth Camp, the winner will be involved in clipping, leading and judging classes within teams, along with farm tours and workshops. The next stop after Youth Camp will be New South Wales for farm tours and sightseeing in Sydney.

Australia's International Dairy Week is held in January so the winner will be attending this, visiting sales and joining in with the Youth Competition. Following this week, the winner will be able to go on more farm tours, including a visit to one of Australia's top bull farms.

There are also opportunities to do plenty of sightseeing, and dependent on your interests, you could be watching a cricket game, the Australian Open Tennis or visiting Melbourne Zoo.


There will be a fully structured itinerary provided by Holstein Australia which will be available closer to the time of travel.
