Unique Valleystream Genetics is located in Rochester, Alberta – about an hour north of Edmonton. The farm was started 27 years ago by Dave & Tracy Morey, who now operate the farm with their children, Casey and Lee. The family milks about 300 purebred Jerseys with four Lely robots, and also have some Holsteins and Brown Swiss. Balanced cows in both type and production are the goal of the breeding program at the farm, ensuring that they have the most efficient cow without sacrificing longevity. They select bulls with combined Fat & Protein over 100 kgs and strong health traits. One of the most notable cow families that the Moreys work with is Avonlea Mischief’s Magnolia SUP EX-92-4E, the 2016 Canadian Cow of the Year.
