The Mark of Excellence (MOE) Program encourages and promotes the development of purebred Herefords through the show ring by:
- Maintaining high standards of competition in Canadian Hereford Shows
- Assisting Fair Boards and Hereford Show Committees with organization and promotion of MOE Shows
- Recognizing outstanding animals
WHAT IS A MOE SHOW?
A Mark of Excellence Show, or MOE Show as it is more affectionately referred to, is a Hereford show given special status by the provincial associations and the Canadian Hereford Association. Animals shown at MOE Shows are eligible for recognition under the MOE Awards Program.
