June Jersey Journal

Welcome to spring! Hopefully it has finally arrived for everyone.


Spring sales and shows are in full swing around the country. The sales are proving the value of the Jersey remains high. Many of the completed state sales have seen very successful averages as have sales from many other sale managers.


The spring shows have been large and from the looks of the reports, there has been a lot of competition in the shows. The classes have been large and the photos that the Jersey Journal has been receiving have been impressive!
