2015 Cow of the Year

Jan 19, 2016

2015 Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year

- Not a contest for any ordinary cow!

Votes have been tabulated and Jersey Canada is please to name Rosalea Jed's Cybil Sup-Ex 94-5E as our 2015 Cow of the Year!

Cybil is truly an exceptional cow and an ambassador for the ideal Jersey. She earned her way to 94-points at the age of nine and has the ultimate conformation with an impressive breakdown of 96 on her rump, 92 on her mammary, 95 for feet and legs, and 97 on dairy strength. These numbers support longevity, health and fertility and will lead the way to genetic improvement and influence the herd as well as the breed.

Now classified as a Supreme Excellent 94-5E (10-10) she is standing the test of time. Cybil has the ideal combination of superior production and her style translates into a solid cow – the type that Rosalea is well known for – while building on her family legacy.

Best 305 (kg): 7-9, 11017 M,  542 @ 4.9% F,  405 @ 3.7% P
BCA: 305-284-296 (Gold Award)
Lifetime (kg): 8 Lact ~ 63740 M,  3050 @ 4.8% F,  2405 @ 3.8% P 

Congratulations to the breeder and owner, John Nixon - Rosalea Jerseys, Rockwood, Ontario, who will receive the 2015 Cow of the Year award at the upcoming Jersey Canada AGM!

From production and progeny, to conformation and show success, the outstanding qualities of the three Cow of the Year nominees made it a very close race. Thank you to everyone who voted and to our two contenders: Fermar Paramount Joy and Lone Pine Giller Donna.
