On 9 and 10 June 2023, the German breeding community will meet in Alsfeld, for a great showcase of Germany's most beautiful cows. The Hessenhalle will provide a great stage for the six major dairy and dual purpose breeds to choose the individual breed champions and the German Supreme Champion.

After a successful start to the first joint German Dairy Show 2019 of the Holstein, Red Holstein, Fleckvieh, Brown Swiss, Red Cattle/Angler and Jersey breeds in Oldenburg, the show is moving further south this year. The new location in the centre of Germany is intended to increase the attractiveness of participation for both breeders and visitors.

You can look forward to a varied programme. A breeders' evening and a trade fair round off this year's German Dairy Show.

The diversity of breeds at Friday evening

The German Dairy Show remains the national show for Holstein and Red Holstein. For the other breeds there will be competitions on a smaller scale with only a few classes. At the end of the show there will be a Supreme Champion, a winning cow from all breeds.

Due to the greater variety of breeds, there will be no auction at the German Dairy Show. This leaves room for the competitions of the new breeds on the evening of the first day. In addition, the Holstein and Red Holstein breeds will bring forward the decision on the winner of the young cow classes to Friday evening.
