Over the years breeders of registered Normandes have
participated in a number of significant cattle shows as we have promoted the
breed. In the past those shows have included the Iowa Beef Expo, the Minnesota
State Fair, the Iowa State Fair, the Wisconsin State Fair, and the World Beef
Expo. After a pause by breeders of exhibiting their Normandes at a NANA
designated show, a show was held in 2007 at Manchester, IA. The following year
NANA hosted the international 2008 Cinor. Part of the 2008 Cinor events
included the World Dairy Expo and a National Normande Show in Mineral Point,
WI. Since then NANA has continued hosting a national show in the early fall. It
is held at the Iowa County Fair Grounds in Mineral Point, WI in the early fall,
after Labor Day and before the World Dairy Expo. Mineral Point, WI has been the
most central location for those breeders who have exhibited at the show.
The general rules of the show and the classes offered are
below. Classes and rules are subject to change as the need arises. Each year
the summer issue of the NANA Newsletter contains information about the upcoming
show for that year, including the date of the show, date entries are due, and
the classes offered. And you can contact the NANA office for information as
well. We invite all breeders of registered Normandes to participate and any
spectators are welcome to watch Normande breeders exhibit their animals in a
friendly, family setting.
