Important information regarding Calves
Please note that with Calves being eligible to return to Waikato Ag day events this year, there are some stipulations that will need to be followed for your child to show their calf at Ag Day this year:
As M-Bovis is still present in NZ there will be a number of items to be addressed by each student/calf.
1) All calves MUST have a NAIT tag in RIGHT ear
2) All calves to have an “Animal Status Declaration Form” when entering school grounds. The NAIT no. must be the number allotted to the property that the calf leaves from on show day
3) Calf/Student and supporters to pass through a Biosecurity pathway when entering calf show area.
There is no postponement day. Group day will take place in rain or shine.
