The article focuses on the concerns raised by the New Zealand Holstein-Friesian Association over access to the national herd database of Animal Evaluation cited by president Denis Aitken during the group's annual meeting and conference held in New Plymouth in 2006. Aitken believes that the members of the association should be able to easily obtain data on the top 500 of its own breed. The president urges members to consider using the semen from some of young bulls. Awards presented at the event included the Valden Trophy for cow demonstrating profitable production.
