All Canadian Competition

About the Jersey Canada All Canadian Competition

In its 62nd year (since 1955), the All Canadian contest is a Jersey Canada award program that recognizes top cows in the show circuit. Traditionally these cows enjoy the attention and prestige of being named an All Canadian. Along with their photo and qualifying show placing's, winning and nominated cows are showcased in the February issue of the Canadian Jersey Breeder publication as well as listed on the Jersey Canada website and announced through email and social media channels. For each Class, All Canadian Champions receive an award at the Jersey Canada annual general meeting.

The Jersey Canada All Canadian program is proudly sponsored by Agri-Brands Purina.

What Class is Your Jersey In for 2017?
Although each show will vary in the type of classes that are offered, we have a chart that will help you with the appropriate age and class for your female Jersey cow. 

What are qualifying shows?
Each year, our Show Committee chooses a selection of shows that are qualifying All Canadian shows. They base it on the number of head shown previously as well as anticipated progress and momentum of the show. It is not an exact science as they cannot always predict the number of head that end up 'showing'. 

What is the main criteria to be considered for a qualifying show?
The main criteria is the number of head. In Ontario and Quebec, a qualifying show must have 55+ Jerseys participating. In Western and Atlantic Canada, the number of head is 40+, and in these two regions it can be an All Breeds show. 

What about non-qualifying shows?
If your animal participates in a non-qualifying show where 55+ Jerseys (Ontario/Quebec) or 40+ All Breeds (West/Atlantic) were shown, there are three fields on the All Canadian application to list the shows and placings.
