Jonas Haeni of Lone Pine Jerseys Receives 2022 Jersey Canada Youth of Distinction Award

Jonas graduated from Olds College in 2020 from the Agriculture Management Diploma program. He currently lives in Didsbury, Alberta with his girlfriend Mytayla Miller, and is a part of the 3rd generation at Lone Pine Jerseys. Jonas works alongside his grandparents, parents (Adrian & Vreni) and 3 brothers (Michael, Sam, & Nils) on the family farm where they milk 110 purebred Jerseys under the Lone Pine prefix. In addition to being involved with the day-to-day operations in the barn, Jonas is also involved in the management of the farm’s 800 acres of cropland that is dedicated to the production of barley, oats, wheat, canola and forages.

Lone Pine Jerseys was recently named the 2021 Jersey Canada Master Breeder Herd, and Jonas has been a vital member in working towards this success. Jonas displays a great amount of dedication and determination in whatever he’s doing, making him a great teammate and even stronger leader. Jonas has a true eye for cattle, he can pick any heifer out of the pasture and know her full pedigree. “He is our walking CDN guy!” states Vreni. His knowledge of the Jersey breed and more specifically the Lone Pine Jerseys herd goes generations back.

Jonas is a true advocate for the dairy industry and the Jersey breed. He displays passion in everything he does and that is especially evident when you witness him working with the Jersey cow. He provides each cow with his undivided attention, ensuring that she is well taken care of and that everything fits her needs. He is the true definition of a “good cow guy”.
