Cow of the Year Nominees Released

Sept 25, 2015

Not a contest for any ordinary cow!

Jersey Canada is pleased to announce three nominees who have been selected to compete for the coveted Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year. The inaugural award began in 2011 and annually recognizes the achievements of Jersey cows who compete to win the title of Cow of the Year.

The nominees are Canadian born purebred Jerseys who showcase longevity, production, genetic merit, and strength of pedigree – both the nominees and winner of this interactive contest are great ambassadors of Canadian genetics.

The nominees selected for the 2015 Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year competition are as follows:

1] Fermar Paramount Joy

Breeder: Ferme Fermar Inc., Quebec

Owner: Nic, Jeni, Ben and Andy Sauder, Illinois

2] Lone Pine Giller Donna

Breeder & Owner: Lone Pine Jerseys, Alberta

3] Rosalea Jed’s Cybil

More information on each nominee will be available in the Dec/Jan issue of the Canadian Jersey Breeder and on the Jersey Canada web site in late October.
