|Jersey Canada and the four regional Jersey associations across the country work together to ensure that the breed is effectively promoted and services are efficiently offered to Jersey owners. The ultimate goals is to reduce duplication efforts at the national and regional levels while making sure the members are well supported.
We live in a very big country where farming practices, herd size and economics vary considerably. While each association is unique in their offerings, below is a list of the types of roles, activities and responsibilities that your regional association may include:
-lobby provincial milk marketing boards
-be involved in County/Parish shows
-place Jerseys in various sales throughout the Region
-regional print advertising campaigns
-have presence at relevant trade shows
-assist owners with lapsed registrations
-visit new owners that have bought their first Jersey
-follow-up on transfers following a sale
-facilitate youth functions (calf rallies, youth seminars, etc.)
-annual meetings and socials
-host barn meetings and open houses
