Jersey Journal

The Jersey Journal staff wishes you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!


We just completed the December issue of the Jersey Journal and are now beginning work on one of our favorite issues of the year -The All American Show and Sale issue.


Each November is a special time for the Jersey breed as many gather in Louisville, Ky., to showcase and promote the Jersey Cow. It is our Championship Show and this was no exception as over 350 Registered Jerseys were exhibited in the Open Show and the 2008 All American and Reserve All American's were named. The National Jersey Jug Futurity show once again showed why it is the largest purse in the world for a single dairy class! All of these winners will once again be featured in the first Jersey Journal of 2009. 


The youth of the breed were at the top of their game with an outstanding Junior Show and new Junior All American’s and Reserve Junior All American’s were named! The Pot O’Gold Sale and All American Jersey Sale were also highlights. Make sure to thank the buyers of your consignments!


Breeding a top-notch Jersey herd that can compete among the best at The All American Jersey Show and Sale is a special feat. The caliber of cows and heifers represented at the show each year is unequalled by any other venue. The foundations of the breed’s top families are always present and new stars are born each year. For three full days, the Jersey breed is in the spotlight and marketed to the world by their success in the National Spotlight. The staff invites you to highlight your successes in the show ring and in the sales arena in this four-color special issue. The first step in showcasing your herd to the world happens through promotion and advertising.


The advertising deadline for the January issue is fast approaching. The early bird discount deadline is next Wednesday December 3. You can save 10% by reserving your space before the end of the day! However, if you miss that early deadline, ads will still be accepted through December 16 without the discount!


This is also a color special month, so you can ad color to your ads for half of the normal price! Full color is just $170, and a second color can be added for just $55.


There are many other things to advertise besides your show string and thanking the buyers of you cattle in 2008. Here are some other ideas:

  • Jersey Stars of the Silent Screen Sale is in Early February! Make sure to include your consignments in the January issue!
  • Do you have a cow or several cows on the Elite Cow List? If so, the Jersey Journal is one of the first places that A.I. companies and independent sales people, look for the latest information on the top genetic-index cows of the breed. What offspring do you have? Or embryos available?
  • Advertise your Hall of Fame and Honor Roll cows from the 3rd Quarter
  • New Appraisal scores? The Jersey appraisers have been out appraising a lot of herds this fall! Were you one of them? Highlight your high scoring Jerseys and let the dairy industry know how they are doing!
  • Have a young bull heading out to an A.I. company? Feature him and tell the breed about his family and his genetic potential!


These are just a few ideas to add to your herd's growing reputation. The Jersey breed is the fastest growing breed in the industry and there are always new faces reading the magazine. Keep your name in front of the audience and continue to market your outstanding herd!
