So many exciting things are happening right now in the Jersey breed. Jerseys continue to lead the dairy industry in Productive Life. Numbers released last week from NAAB show an increase of over 11% in semen sales in 2006. Over 2 million units were sold foreign and domestically last year alone!
In the April issue, you will read of the new production records set in the Jersey breed. Production levels in 2006 reached all-time highs and more and more herds have fine-tuned their management and breeding selection to get more milk from the already efficient Jersey cow. It is a great time to be involved with the fastest growing dairy breed in the United States!
With all of that exciting news, Jersey Journal staff invites you to promote your Jersey herd and accomplishments in our April issue of the Journal. There are many things to talk about and be proud of. Here are just a few of the ideas you could focus on.
- High Production Herds - More herds than ever have reached the 20,000 lb.-mark. Highlight your herd and how you have reached your peak! Analyze your cows, sire selection and management techniques.
- Spring Sales are in full swing - Merchandise your spring consignments to the following sales: Wisconsin Spring Spectacular, Field of Dreams IV Sale, Chosen Few from Country Hills Sale, New England Jersey Breeders Sale, New York Spring Sale, Illinois Invitational Sale and the Ohio Spring Classic Sale are just a few on our calendar! An advertisement is an easy way to let over 3,100 Jersey breeders worldwide know why your cattle will make them proud.
- High JPI Cows - The lists are out and these are the cows that A.I. companies are looking to for tomorrow's bull mothers. Advertise your breed leaders in the April issue of the Jersey Journal.
