2016 Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year

Jan 13, 2017

Not a contest for any ordinary cow!

Votes have been tabulated and Jersey Canada is please to name Avonlea Mischief’s Magnolia ET Sup-Ex 92-4E as our 2016 Cow of the Year! Magnolia is truly an exceptional cow and an ambassador for the ideal Jersey. 

As a 10 Star Brood cow, Magnolia is most defined by her ability to replicate her extraordinary production through her progeny. Magnolia holds a list of impressive show results and was the first and only Jersey to win Supreme Junior Champion at the Western Canadian Livestock Expo, where black and whites are prominent competition in the West.

Best 305 (kg): 6-7, 10971 M, 430 @ 3.92% F, 378 @ 3.45% P

BCA: 313-229-284

Lifetime (kg): 7 Lact ~ 89729 M, 3960 @ 4.41% F, 3351 @ 3.73% P 

Congratulations to the owners, Unique Stock Farm, Rochester, Alberta and Robert Jarrell, Corbyville, Ontario, who will receive the 2016 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: Green Hectares Extreme Vallie and Maughlin Jamaica Durango.
