Six years later he received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Ontario branch of Holstein Canada. In 1984 he joined Holstein Canada as a classifier, becoming involved with various foreign assignments, judging and classifying worldwide, including a tour through the UK in 1986.

Brian became head classifier in 1994 and he was also a representative on the World Harmonisation Committee. Classification and judging assignments have taken him to the USA, Cuba, Ecuador, Columbia, Russia, Mexico, Germany as well as the UK.
