Greetings Jersey friends! The December Journal is at the printer and we are beginning work on the ever-popular January Jersey Journal – the issue featuring the 2007 All American and Reserve All American’s from the Jersey championship show in Louisville, Ky.
This year was a tremendous year at The All American, as the enthusiasm for the Jersey breed ran rampant through the barns. In the largest purebred show of all species shown at the North American International Livestock Exposition, 388 Jerseys walked on the green shavings in The All American Jersey Show. Over 220 Registered Jerseys were exhibited in The All American Junior Jersey Show and 40 three-year-olds competed in the National Jersey Jug Futurity.
The All American Sales were fantastic as well . . . The 50th Pot O’Gold Sale raised the bar with the top two animals in the sale, bringing the highest prices in the 50-year history of the sale. Thirty Jersey youth and their new purchases will compete for the record Pot of over $4,000 in 2010! The All American Sale also set new records with the largest gross dollar amount in sale history - $579,625 on 109 lots.
The Jersey Journal congratulates all of the winners, consignors and buyers of The All American events. We also extend our appreciation to the sponsors that make our breed championship show a special one for all involved.
This issue will feature the wrap-up of all of the Louisville events. The deadline is fast approaching for advertising in this special issue. Save 10% on your ad with an Early bird discount . . .
