Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year Candidates

Not a contest for any ordinary cow! 

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

The candidates 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 three selected candidates for the 2017 Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year competition are as follows:

Charlyn Nevada Emma Ex 95-5E
Breeder & Owner: Charlyn Jerseys, Warwick Township, Ontario 

Hollylane Rene Esmeralda Ex 93-4E

There will be three ways to vote: on-line, email and in-person, and although each prefix/farm/person can only submit one vote, you do not need to be a Jersey Canada member.
