The Jersey Canada Cow of the Year contest is a program that provides an opportunity to recognize a cow that truly demonstrates outstanding qualities within a broad range of criteria.
The cow is consistent, extraordinary and a legacy to her sons and daughters. The nominees are Canadian born purebred Jerseys who showcase longevity, production, genetic merit, and strength of pedigree – both the nominees and winner of this interactive contest are great ambassadors of Canadian genetics. The inaugural award began in 2011 and annually recognizes the achievements of Jersey cows who compete to win the title of Cow of the Year.
