Greetings to our Jersey friends!
The March issue of the Jersey Journal is in full swing, and exciting things are happening across the nation! Spring sale consignments coming in rapidly, new National Class Leader lists are out, and the JPI cow and sire lists are still hot topics around the country. Next week in Tulare, Calif., the World Ag Expo kicks off their annual show and Jersey Marketing Service will be hosting the Jersey Stars of the Silent Screen Sale in conjunction with the Ag Expo. Other spring sales are also gearing up with the Sweetheart II Sale in Kansas, and the Showcase of Virginia Tech Sale next week in Virginia. As usual with the Jersey business, there is ALWAYS something going on!
