2017 Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year

Holding four Silver Production Awards, Emma is a farm favourite that looks good but is all business. At 11 years old she is a trouble-free cow that exceeds the expectations of her owners with her trademark of high butterfat and protein. She is the type of cow that can make the milk tank happy in any herd, but Emma has a successful showy side as well. She is truly an exceptional cow and an ambassador for the ideal Jersey. Thank you to everyone who voted and to our two contenders: Hollylane Rene Esmeralda Ex 93-4E and Way-Bon Counciller Mystery Sup Ex 95-6E. Esmeralda and Mystery are outstanding candidates who made the contest a very close race!

Vache de l 'année

Charlyn Nevada Emma Ex 95-5E Congratulations to breeder and owner Charlyn Jerseys, Warwick Township in Ontario, who will receive the 2017 Cow of the Year award at the upcoming Jersey Canada AGM!

Détenant quatre Prix Argent de production, Emma est une chouchou de la ferme qui paraît bien mais qui est à son affaire. À 11 ans, c’est une vache sans problème qui dépasse les attentes de ses propriétaires avec sa signature de hauts niveaux de gras et de protéine. Emma est le genre de vache qui rend le réservoir à lait heureux tout en connaissant le succès dans l'arène d’exposition. Avec sept nominations consécutives au au Tout Canadien, Emma représente le haut pointage, l’efficacité et la profitabilité. Elle est vraiment une vache exceptionnelle et une ambassadrice pour la Jersey idéale. Félicitations à son éleveur et propriétaire, Charlyn Jerseys, du comté de Warwick en Ontario, qui recevra le prix de Vache de l’année 2017 à la prochaine AGA de Jersey Canada! Merci à tous ceux qui ont voté pour les deux aspirantes : Hollylane Rene Esmeralda Ex 93-4E et Way-Bon Counciller Mystery Sup Ex 95-6E. Esmeralda et Mystery sont des candidates exceptionnelles qui ont mené une chaude lutte dans ce concours!

MESSAGE DU

,

by/par Tim Sargent President/Président

Momentum À l’approche de la fin de l’année 2017, nous avons 600 enregistrements de plus chez Jersey Canada (en date du 31 octobre) comparativement à l’année passée. C’est une preuve irréfutable de la demande pour les Jerseys par une utilisation accrue de la semence sexée et des importations d’animaux provenant des É.-U. pour combler la demande actuelle pour le gras. Mois c’est plus Avec son petit gabarit, moins d’aliments sont consommés, moins de fumier est produit, la production de phosphore est moindre, moins d’appels chez le vétérinaire sont faits, moins d’espace est requis et moins de terrain est utilisé pour produire les aliments nécessaires à chaque kg de gras. Ceci fait de la race Jersey une bonne option efficace. Envoyez vos enregistrements aujourd’hui pour aider à établir un autre record national d’enregistrements pour 2017. Fièvre de lait La fièvre de lait a toujours été un mot maudit quand on parle de Jerseys. Au fil des ans, il y a eu plusieurs avancées dans l’alimentation des animaux. Ces techniques ont virtuellement éliminé le besoin de traitement IV de calcium dans les troupeaux laitiers bien gérés. Des suppléments avant vêlage qui peuvent aider sont : 1. Transition VB 2. Vicomb 3. Zeolite 4. Probiotiques 5. Levure - contactez votre nutritionniste pour la disponibilité et les quantités à servir Chez Enniskillen, nous avons eu du succès avec l’utilisation de bols de calcium. En fournissant un bol lors du vêlage, un autre 12 heures après et un troisième 24 heures après le vêlage si la vache n’est pas alerte et ne mange pas assez. La clé pour éviter la fièvre vitulaire est de ne pas traire la vache fraîchement vêlée avant qu’elle ne consomme activement sa ration et produise du fumier mou. Récolter assez de lait pour nourrir le veau nouveau-né est essentiel et de traire complètement une vache qui est à son troisième veau ou plus, avant qu’elle ne soit sur pied et mange bien, n’est pas recommandé. Foire agricole Royal d’hiver (RAWF) L’exposition nationale Jersey de la RAWF fut inscrite dans le livre des records avec 249 animaux inscrits dans le Ring de l’excellence Semex pour l’exposition et formant des classes fortes d’un bout à l’autre. Présenter des animaux est un travail de passion et peut être dispendieux. Mais d’après le nombre de Jerseys inscrits dans la Classique TD, dans la compétition de présentation jeunesse, l’exposition nationale Jersey et l’activité soutenue au kiosque de Jersey Canada, nous sommes certains que les activités de l’exposition aident à promouvoir la race au Canada. Nous aimerions remercier tous ceux qui ont participé et qui ont pris du temps dans leur horaire chargé pour préparer leurs animaux. Au nom de la confrérie Jersey, j’aimerais féliciter Musqie Valley Iatola Martha pour son troisième titre consécutif de Grande Championne et Championne Suprême. Avec quatre fabuleuses championnes multi-races en compétition pour le titre Suprême, December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder

commandité par Quality Seeds, ce ne fut pas une victoire facile. Les jeunes et la prochaine génération de producteurs laitiers sont intéressés dans les Jerseys et sont une part importante de la raison pour montée que la race a connue depuis dix ans. En regardant le progrès des programmes offerts par Jersey Canada, la popularité de la compétition de présentation jeunesse Jersey continue cette année avec 47 inscriptions. Lors de cet événement, de jeunes gens représentent toutes les races mais sont très contents de présenter des veaux Jerseys. Le nouveau logo et les nouveaux éléments graphiques de Jersey Canada à la Royal ont été très bien reçus et Phyllis remarque qu’elle a passé plus de temps à l’extérieur du kiosque que dedans à cause de tous les gens qui voulaient se prendre en photo. La ligne exclusive de vêtements et les accessoires arborant les couleurs Jerseys étaient disponibles à la Royal et furent très populaires auprès des visiteurs locaux, nationaux et internationaux. Vache de l’année C’est avec grand plaisir que nous félicitons Charlyn Nevada Emma et Charlyn Farms qui ont reçu le plus de vote pour la Vache de l’année 2017. Les trois candidates étaient exceptionnelles et ont eu un impact positif sur la race Jersey et ses propriétaires/ familles. Les candidates possèdent une belle combinaison de production, confirmation et longévité ce qui est la qualité première de la race Jersey. Merci pour votre participation et à tous ceux qui ont voté pour leur vache préférée. Assemblée générale annuelle 2018 (AGA) L’AGA de Jersey Canada s’en vient à grands pas et est organisée par le Club Jersey de Kawartha. Le club est très occupé à peaufiner les détails pour vous tenir occupé et diverti du 15 au 17 mars. La vente Kawartha Pot of Gold débutera les festivités et présentera 60 lots soigneusement choisis par Avonlea Genetics de Brighton, Ontario. Les visites de ferme du Club Kawartha débuteront à 9 h le 16 avec un circuit de six fermes locales. Chaque entreprise présente son propre style de gestion, passant d’une étable attachée, salon/ litière accumulée et stabulation libre/robot de traite. L’AGA se tiendra le 17 mars et célébrera la grande renaissance de la race Jersey au Canada. La réunion se tiendra au Ajax Convention Center, près de l’autoroute 401. Pour ceux qui voudraient s’aventurer dans le centre-ville de Toronto (à environ 20 minutes en train) la station de train GO n’est qu’à quelques minutes de l’hôtel. Joyeuses fêtes Au nom du conseil d’administration de Jersey Canada et de son personnel, j’aimerais vous souhaiter un Joyeux Noël et, peu importe comment elle se déroulera, une Nouvelle année très prospère. Continuez à partager votre enthousiasme pour la bonne génétique laitière canadienne et les magnifiques animaux Jerseys.  Sincères salutations,

Tim

Earl Vander Meulen Memorial Award

Le prix commémoratif Earl Vander Meulen

Tim & Sharyn Sargent - Enniskillen, Ontario

The Earl Vander Meulen Memorial Award was established in 2007 and commemorates Earl’s strong character, and recognizes his legacy of caring for family, establishing lifelong friendships, a strong faith, and love of the farm. Over the past 10 years, recipients that have been chosen exude integrity, have a positive attitude, possess progressive leadership skills, and are involved in the dairy industry and other community organizations. Tim and Sharyn Sargent of Enniskillen, Ontario are the 2017 recipients of this award in its final year. They were not only close friends with Earl, but shared similar values and experiences as young breeders. Tim and Sharyn own Enniskillen Jerseys, milking 50 cows (150 head in total) and working 250 acres. They were both raised on Master Breeder dairy farms. Tim practiced the art of Jersey breeding and farming from mentor, Master Breeder and Jersey icon, Frank Stenger, who founded Enniskillen in 1939. This relationship led Tim and Sharyn to eventually purchase the Enniskillen farm. Over the years, Enniskillen has successfully branded themselves as a source for honest hard-working cows from deep cow families and are known to market quality cattle into start-up and Holstein herds. Enniskillen Tops Grove SUP-EX 95-5E received the Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year award in 2014. Tim and Sharyn have five children ranging in age from 18 to 28, who are all heavily involved in the farm operation and participate in 4-H. Perhaps Tim and Sharyn’s greatest legacy is as loving and supportive parents, as their accomplished children all possess a strong work ethic, have exceptional leadership skills, and show respect for others. The Sargent’s are all about the love of family and passion for the family farm. In addition to running the farm, Tim is currently the president of the Jersey Canada Board of Directors and has been chair of the Genetic Improvement Committee for many years. Sharyn works as a Registered Nurse in the pediatric ward at Oshawa General Hospital. She also has numerous responsibilities on the farm, including milking, feeding calves, accountant, catering, and human resources. Over the years, community involvement has been endless with 4-H leadership, managing the Ontario Summer Show (20 years and counting), helping to organize the local farmers parade at Christmas, volunteering at the local school, and participating with the Kawartha Jersey Club. Congratulations to Tim and Sharyn on receiving this well-deserved award. •

Thank You

Le Prix commémoratif Earl Vander Meulen a été mis sur pied en 2007 pour commémorer la forte personnalité d’Earl et souligner son héritage d’amour pour la famille, les amitiés durables, la foi et l’amour pour la ferme. Au cours des 10 dernières années, les récipiendaires qui ont été choisis débordent d’intégrité, ont une attitude positive, possèdent des talents progressifs de leadership et sont engagés dans l’industrie laitière et autres organismes communautaires. Tim et Sharyn Sargent d’Enniskillen, Ontario sont les récipiendaires 2017 de ce prix qui en est à sa dernière année. Non seulement étaient-ils bons amis avec Earl, mais ils ont partagé les mêmes valeurs et les mêmes expériences lorsque jeunes éleveurs. Tim et Sharyn possèdent Enniskillen Jerseys. Ils ont 50 vaches en lactation (150 animaux en tout) et cultivent 250 acres de terrain. Tim a appris l’art de l’élevage des Jerseys et de l’agriculture de son mentor, le Maître Éleveur et personnage Jersey bien connu, Frank Stenger, qui a fondé Enniskillen en 1939. Cette relation d’amitié a mené éventuellement Tim et Sharyn à acheter la ferme Enniskillen. Au fil des années, Enniskillen a réussi à faire sa marque comme source fiable pour des vaches travaillantes provenant de familles de vaches solides. La ferme est reconnue pour offrir au marché des animaux de qualité pour des nouveaux troupeaux ou des troupeaux Holstein. Enniskillen Tops Grove SUP-EX 95-5E a reçu le titre de Vache canadienne Jersey de l’année en 2014. Tim et Sharyn ont cinq grands enfants, de 18 à 28 ans, qui participent activement au roulement de la ferme et sont membres actifs des 4-H. Peut-être que le plus grand héritage de Tim et Sharyn aura été d’être des parents aimants et à l’écoute car leurs enfants possèdent tous une éthique de travail solide, ont des talents de leadership exceptionnels et démontrent du respect pour les autres. Les Sargent représentent l’amour pour la famille et la passion pour la ferme familiale. En plus de gérer la ferme, Tim est présentement le Président du conseil d’administration de Jersey Canada et a également siégé comme Président au comité d’amélioration génétique pendant plusieurs années. Sharyn est une infirmière autorisée dans l’aile pédiatrique de l’hôpital général d’Oshawa. Elle a également de nombreuses responsabilités sur la ferme dont la traite, l’alimentation des veaux, la comptabilité et les ressources humaines. Au fil des ans, l’engagement communautaire a été constant avec le leadership 4-H, la gestion de l’Ontario Summer Show (pendant 20 ans et ça continue), l’organisation du défilé agricole local à Noël, le bénévolat à l’école locale et la participation au club Jersey de Kawartha. Félicitations à Tim and Sharyn pour l’obtention de ce prix bien mérité. •

1977 - Original Jersey true type painting by Ross Butler

2006

2017

« Comme compagnie de marque et de design nous visons à communiquer l’histoire de nos clients. Nous sommes contentes d’avoir travaillé avec Jersey Canada pour la mise à jour du logo de l’organisation. Cette mise à jour n’est pas un grand changement, mais une évolution – juste assez pour refléter d’où vient Jersey Canada et de projeter l’avenir de la race. Le plus grand changement dans l’identité visuelle est dans la façon dont la feuille d’érable et la vache Jersey sont reliées et équilibrées ainsi que le changement d’une police d’écriture en lettres majuscules épurées. Le but général était d’aider à moderniser le logo tout en conservant la marque déjà établie par Jersey Canada. » JULIE KNOWLES directrice de création/associée the blondes www.theblondes.ca

Célébrons les SUCCÈS

Le logo de Jersey Canada avec lequel vous êtes le plus familier fut modernisé en 2006, environ en même temps où les réseaux sociaux débutaient et la même année où Facebook a été rendu public. Feu Ross Butler était l’artiste qui avait créé le tableau original de la vache type Jersey en 1977 exclusivement pour Jersey Canada. La tête Jersey, avec laquelle nous sommes familiers, fut extraite de ce tableau et a été utilisée dans le logo pendant plusieurs années. Le style rappelait celui de Holstein Canada et Ayrshire Canada. Dans le monde du marketing et des communications, beaucoup de choses ont changé au cours des 11 dernières années. La technologie mobile et les communications numériques ont explosé, ainsi que les multiples choix d’applications de médias sociaux. En gros, les gens communiquent différemment aujourd’hui qu’il y a 10 ans. On rapporte qu’en 2016 seulement, un demi-million de canadiens ont abandonné leur ligne téléphonique fixe et que 25% des gens n’utilisent désormais que leur téléphone cellulaire. Avec les besoins changeants, la technologie avancée, les nouvelles plateformes et les préférences de communications, il vient un temps où il est nécessaire de bien regarder la marque de l’organisation, sa direction et les visuels qui l’accompagnent. Créer et/ ou mettre à jour un logo est un grand projet collaboratif qui demande plusieurs personnes. Plusieurs phases de développement sont requises pour obtenir un produit final puissant qui respecte la tradition et l’identité tout en étant attrayant pour la prochaine génération de producteurs laitiers et qui laisse l’image conter l’histoire de notre progrès et notre succès. Nous aimerions donc partager notre processus de mise à jour du logo avec vous... et peut-être allez-vous considérer une mise à jour de la marque de votre ferme! 1. Valeurs de la marque Julie Knowles de ‘the blondes’ était l’experte en design de logo pour ce projet. Nous lui avons fourni la vision de Jersey Canada, la mission, les données démographiques, qui nous voulions attirer et nos services/bénéfices. L’organisation de race de la Jersey canadienne existe depuis 1901. Il était donc important d’honorer notre passé, de rendre hommage à la fondation et à la force de la race tout en mettant de l’avant les services professionnels de l’association et son avenir. 2. Unique & simple Tout comme Nike, Coke et Apple qui ont tous une image distinctive, nous voulons que notre logo soit instantanément reconnu. Pour laisser une impression et être possiblement mémorable, les couleurs furent accentuées pour bien paraître à l’imprimé et sur l’écran. Le logo devait rester net et simple. Le design courbé décrit une association de race ayant

DE LA

RACE

une pensée progressive, ouverte et en évolution. L’espace négatif (l’espace blanc autour des images/ mots) est aussi important pour contribuer à l’aspect visuel. La police d’écriture, comme la couleur, crée un message en soi et pour soutenir l’image de la marque, la police d’écriture choisie est forte, professionnelle et moderne. 3. Adapté à l’industrie Après la création de plusieurs concepts de logos, le conseil d’administration de Jersey Canada a ensuite choisi une version du logo qui serait appropriée et qui refléterait le mieux l’organisation et l’industrie. Puis on l’a peaufinée. Tout en maintenant des éléments de design similaires à d’autres associations de race de l’industrie, il était important que nous conservions notre propre identité, que nous pourrions nous démarquer et ne pas être un logo générique qui ne serait pas perçu par notre auditoire. Nous représentons une race laitière qui offre des avantages économiques remarquables – même si les Jerseys peuvent être un avantage dans tout troupeau, leurs qualités sont uniques. 4. Flexibilité Un critère important de cette démarche était que le logo devait être versatile. Nous avons besoin de plusieurs formats de fichiers, qui peuvent être réduits ou agrandis selon les bannières et les enseignes. Nous avions aussi besoin de différentes versions verticales et horizontales du logo pour s’adapter aux spécifications de notre site internet, des profils sur les médias sociaux et dans les communications électroniques - et ceci est en constante évolution pour s’adapter aux écrans de téléphones cellulaires. Il devait passer sans peine de l’imprimé au numérique et nous devions aussi penser à nos produits (vêtements avec logo et accessoires). Une autre raison de garder le design simple, pour qu’il puisse être brodé ou imprimé sur du tissu, apposé sur une tasse. Pour épargner de l’argent, nous faisons souvent imprimer en noir et blanc, donc cette version devait aussi être agréable. Le logo de Jersey Canada est très souvent utilisé et un design trop complexe rend ces transitions problématiques. 5. Longévité Le logo développé en 2006 avait un design intemporel et a permis à Jersey Canada de le mettre à jour sans heurts. Il est moderne et frais, reflète l’air du temps, garde son but premier et restera facile à reconnaître comme symbole de marque pendant des générations. Nous reconnaissons que c’est dans la nature humaine de résister au changement, si petit soit-il, mais le conseil d’administration de Jersey Canada est confiant que ce logo revampé est attrayant et que le design progressif supportera nos membres aujourd’hui et dans l’avenir. Merci à Julie Knowles de ‘the blondes’ d’avoir saisi nos besoins et d’avoir créé un design remarquable en 36 formats numériques. • 25

Félicitations Martha

For three years there has only been one Supreme Champion dairy cow at the 2017 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair - a Jersey named Musqie Iatola Martha. Martha has had five calves and was bred by Musqie Valley Farms in Middle Musquodoboit, Nova Scotia. Owners MilkSource Genetics of Kaukauna, WI and Finca Valparaiso are sharing the limelight of her win and she resides in the US. Congratulations to Martha on an outstanding accomplishment.

Depuis trois ans, il n’y a eu qu’une seule vache laitière Championne Suprême à la Foire agricole Royal d’hiver 2017 - une Jersey s’appelant Musqie Iatola Martha. Martha a eu cinq veaux et fut élevée par Musqie Valley Farms en Nouvelle-Écosse. MilkSource Genetics de Kaukauna, Wisconsin et Finca Valparaiso partagent l’éblouissement de sa victoire, mais elle réside aux É.-U. Félicitations à Martha pour cette réussite fabuleuse.

JERSEY CALVES They’re not just small Holsteins In preparing this article, I’ve come to a conclusion that everyone reading can attest - Jerseys are a unique breed. Now more than ever, with most farms milking Holsteins (and hence most research dollars being directed at the breed), it pays to be keenly aware of the subtle, though vitally important, characteristics that set the Jersey breed apart. This article may be old news to purebred Jersey herds, but more and more Holstein herds are adding Jerseys to their herd (for obvious reasons), and if the calves are being fed and managed like their Holstein herdmates, growth and health will surely suffer. First and foremost, Jerseys have very few problems calving (Yao et al., 2014). Owing primarily to the small calf size, Jerseys are a dream to calve out. Having problems with dystocia can lead to injuries (rib or vertebral fractures) and respiratory acidosis – both of which increase the odds of failure of passive transfer (where the calf does not absorb enough antibodies), sickness, and death (Schuijt G, 1990) ... so our small Jersey calves aren’t fighting as steep an uphill battle as some larger breed calves. Studies have corroborated this point, finding that Jersey herds tended to have lower mortality in the first 48 hours of life relative to Holsteins (Bascom, 2002). Also, if you feed clean colostrum at 10% of the calf’s body weight within the first 12 hours of life (with the first feeding no later than 6 hours old), you should theoretically have better transfer of antibodies and get the Jersey calf off to a great start. Now that the Jersey calf is out, there is another unique fact that needs to be addressed: Jersey calves have a high surface area-to-body mass ratio (relative to other large frame breeds). What does this mean? The skin of calves is where heat is gained or lost, depending on temperature gradient between the calf and her environment. Imagine you are trying to heat two equally sized houses on a cold winter day. The first has many large, leaky, old windows; whereas the second has very few, small, energy efficient ones … the area through which heat can escape is FAR larger for the “leaky” house vs the second energy efficient one. This concept follows for Jersey calves vs Holsteins of similar size. All this means that the astute Jersey manager must work harder to keep their pre-weaned calves warm: 1. Feed more calories (i.e. volume) during the cold winter months; 34

2. Provide clean, deep straw bedding to allow for nesting (insulation); 3. Dry the Jersey calf off ASAP after birth; 4. Heat lamps are vital to ensure drying and heat retention; 5. Consider using calf jackets for added insulation; 6. Minimize exposure to drafts. Another vital difference between Jersey calves and other dairy breeds is their unique pre-weaning nutritional needs. Jerseys have a higher maintenance energy requirement relative to Holsteins (Bascom et al., 2007). In order to attain similar rates of growth (i.e. average daily gain) to Holsteins, the Jersey calf needs to be fed proportionally more, as a higher amount of calories are being devoted to maintenance functions (i.e. digestion, respiration, immunity, etc) and away from growth. In addition to growth rates, plane of nutrition has a significant effect on the immune system of Jersey calves. Recently, researchers noted that calves fed 6 L of milk replacer at a fat: protein ratio of 20:20 had significantly lower immune function relative to calves fed 28:25 milk replacer (the “higher plane of nutrition” group) (Ballou, 2012). Of note, the effect of a lower plane of nutrition was more profound in Jersey calves relative to Holsteins. This means that the Jersey feeder must be extra vigilant to ensure their calves are being fed adequate amounts of milk solids at the appropriate volumes, not only to ensure excellent growth, but also immune function and overall health. This all certainly makes sense when we look at Mother Nature’s intentions for the Jersey calf: ad lib intake of 5.5% fat and 4.5% protein! Talk to your veterinarian and nutritionist to ensure you are feeding your Jersey calves to ensure that they are thriving. Finally, it is important to know that the thriving Jersey calf reaches sexual maturity faster than other larger breeds. Indeed, Canadian researchers have found that Jersey heifers reached breeding age at 12.6 months, one and two months earlier than Holstein and Brown Swiss heifers, respectively (Duplessis et al., 2015). Jersey heifers freshen and produce milk at a younger age, making them more efficient. Hopefully this article serves as a reminder of the subtle though important characteristics of Jersey calves that set them apart from other breeds. Keeping these differences in mind will maximize the health and productivity of your Jersey calves – the future of your herd! •

En préparant cet article, j’en suis venu à la conclusion que vous tous avez déjà compris – les Jerseys sont une race unique. Maintenant, plus que jamais, comme la plupart des fermes ont des Holsteins (et, par conséquent, plus de fonds de recherche sont consacrés à cette race) il est payant d’être au courant des caractéristique subtiles, mais combien importantes, qui démarquent la race Jersey. Cet article peut sembler être du réchauffé pour les propriétaires de troupeaux complètement Jerseys, mais de plus en plus de troupeaux Holsteins ajoutent des Jerseys à leur troupeau (pour des raisons évidentes) et, si les veaux sont nourris et gérés comme leurs congénères Holsteins, la croissance et la santé en souffriront. Premièrement, les Jerseys ont très peu de problème au vêlage (Yao et al., 2014). Grâce principalement au faible poids des veaux, les Jerseys sont un charme à faire vêler. Des problèmes de dystocie peuvent mener à des blessures (fracture de côtes ou de vertèbres) et d’acidose respiratoire – augmentant les chance d’un transfert passif (où le veau n’absorbe pas assez d’anticorps), de maladie et de mort (Schuijt G, 1990) ... donc, nos petits veaux Jerseys n’ont pas à mener d’aussi grandes batailles que les races plus grandes. Les études ont confirmé ce point, trouvant que les troupeaux Jerseys avaient tendance à avoir moins de mortalité dans les premières 48 heures de vie comparativement aux Holsteins (Bascom, 2002). Aussi, si vous donnez du colostrum propre à 10 % de la masse corporelle du veau dans les 12 premières heures de vie (avec le premier repas dans les 6 premières heures) vous devriez, en théorie, avoir un meilleur transfert. Une fois le veau Jersey né, un autre fait unique est important: les veaux Jerseys ont un grand ratio de surface vs masse corporelle (relativement aux races de plus gros gabarit). Qu’est-ce que ça signifie? C’est par la peau que les veaux gagnent ou perdent le plus de chaleur, selon la différence de température entre le veau et son environnement. Imaginez que vous vouliez chauffer deux maisons de grandeur égales lors d’une froide journée d’hiver. La première a plusieurs vieilles grandes fenêtres laissant passer l’air, tandis que la seconde en a peu, qu’elles sont petites et étanches ... la surface par laquelle la chaleur peut s’échapper est largement plus grande pour la maison « qui fuit » que celle étanche. Ce concept peut se transposer aux veaux Jerseys comparativement aux veaux Holsteins de grosseur similaire. Tout ceci signifie qu’un gérant de Jerseys astucieux doit travailler fort pour garder au chaud ses veaux naissants : 1. Offrez plus de calories (i.e. volume) pendant les froids mois d’hiver; 2. Fournissez une litière de paille propre et abondante qui permet la nidification (isolation); 3. Séchez le veau Jersey le plus tôt possible après la naissance; December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder

VEAUX JERSEY Ce ne sont pas de petits Holsteins 4. Les lampes chauffantes sont vitales pour assurer le séchage et la rétention de chaleur; 5. Étudiez l’utilisation de manteaux pour veaux pour plus d’isolation; 6. Minimiser les courants d’air. Une autre différence vitale entre les veaux Jerseys et les veaux d’autres races laitières est leurs besoins nutritionnels uniques avant le sevrage. Les Jerseys ont un besoin énergétique de base plus grand que les Holsteins (Bascom et al., 2007). Pour pouvoir obtenir des gains de croissance similaires (par exemple gain moyen quotidien) aux Holsteins, le veau Jersey a besoin de plus d’aliments proportionnellement, plus de calories étant requises pour les fonctions de maintien (digestion, respiration, immunité, etc.). Il en reste donc moins pour la croissance. En plus des taux de croissance, la qualité de l’offre alimentaire a un effet significatif sur le système immunitaire des veaux Jerseys. Récemment, les chercheurs ont remarqué que les veaux recevant 6 l de lait de remplacement à un ratio gras:protéine de 20:20 avaient une fonction immunitaire significativement moindre que les veaux qui recevaient un lait de remplacement 28:25 (le groupe « meilleure qualité d’alimentation ») (Ballou, 2012). Il est à noter que les effets d’une qualité moindre d’aliments étaient plus significatifs chez les veaux Jerseys comparativement aux Holsteins. Ceci signifie que la personne qui nourrit des Jerseys doit être encore plus vigilante pour s’assurer que les veaux reçoivent des quantités adéquates de solides du lait, pas seulement pour s’assurer d’une excellente croissance mais aussi pour les fonctions immunitaires et la santé générale. Ceci prend tout son sens lorsqu’on regarde l’intention de Mère nature pour les veaux Jerseys : la prise à volonté de 5,5 % de gras et de 4,5 % de protéine! Parlez à votre vétérinaire et à votre nutritionniste pour vous assurer que vous nourrissez vos veaux Jerseys pour qu’ils respirent la santé. Finalement, il est important de savoir que les veaux Jerseys qui se portent bien, atteignent la maturité sexuelle plus vite que les races plus grandes. En effet, les chercheurs canadiens ont trouvé que les génisses Jerseys atteignent l’âge de l’accouplement à 12,6 mois, un et deux mois plus tôt que les Holsteins et les Suisses Brunes respectivement (Duplessis et al., 2015). Les génisses Jerseys sont fraîches et produisent du lait à un plus jeune âge, ce qui les rend plus efficaces. J’espère que cet article servira de rappel des caractéristiques subtiles, mais importantes, des veaux Jerseys qui les différencient des autres races. Garder en tête ces différences maximisera la santé et la productivité de vos veaux Jerseys – l’avenir de votre troupeau! • 35

Proactive & Visionary Organic Jersey Farming

Denis, Dominic and Jonathan Hamel and Fernande Goudreau are the proud owners of Ferme Hamelon (JDF) & Fils Inc., a certified organic dairy farm in Sainte-Elizabethde-Warwick central Quebec. There are over 460 purebred or percentage Jerseys on the farm: 270 milk cows, 30 dry cows and 160 replacement animals. Ferme Hamelon works 1,300 acres of farm land with a 6-year crop rotation: four years of hay, one year of soybeans and one year of barley. Taking care of a large herd and farming a sizable acreage, in an organic way, requires good management and exceptional human resources. In addition to the company’s four owners, Anne-Marie, Jonathan’s spouse, and five other full-time employees, divide up the daily tasks where everyone's strengths are utilized and valued. Jonathan manages the fields and buildings, while Dominic oversees the herd, with major decisions discussed between the owners. The work load is reduced with modern equipment: four Lely robotic milkers, two Lely Calm automatic calf feeders, a Lely Vector feed distributor and three Lely Discovery alley scrapers. The use of robotic milkers offers several advantages: milking is done by individual quarters and the breeder has access to a wealth of useful data such as each cow's number of visits to the robot, rumination activity, movements, and milk quality/ quantity. The owners report a 20% increase in milk volume with an average of 2.4 milkings per cow. Combining the strength of technology, and the knowledge and experience of the team, enables the day-to-day farm operation to be as efficient as possible. The barns of the Ferme Hamelon were not always filled with Jerseys: it was in 1998 that the first 12 Jerseys were purchased. After a major fire in 1999, three Holstein herds and one Jersey herd was added. Having experience with two dairy breeds, the owners were always very mindful of the efficiency,

profitability and overall superior performance that their Jerseys offered. Over the years, the herd colour slowly changed from black and white to brown. Jonathan explains: "Jerseys, with their small size, develop fewer feet and leg problems. The hardness of the black hooves is less prone to injuries in the free stalls and pasture. Calving ease is also a great quality and I must dust off the calf-puller since it is only used once every two years! For a herd this size we really appreciate this aspect of the breed." High components, excellent health traits and ease of handling also add to the Jerseys list of attractive qualities. The owners are founding members and shareholders of the Fromagerie L'Ancêtre, an organic cheese plant, located in St-Grégoire. The quality and the high components of Jersey milk made the Jersey breed a logical choice and presently all of their milk is taken to this processing plant. Jonathan and Dominic follow a wellplanned management program for the young stock. Due to the high fertility of Jerseys, Ferme Hamelon has an average age of 21 months at first calving. Jonathan adds, "We have an average of 1.7 breeding’s per animal and use 450 doses of semen per year, a small amount compared to the size of our herd." The cows are registered and the family appreciates visits and feedback from Jean-Marc Pellerin, Jersey Canada’s National Fieldman, as well as other industry partners. The robotic milkers where installed in 2015 and the herd adapted very quickly within a two-week time frame. "The curious nature of the Jerseys makes them easy to train," explains Jonathan. While some cows may have up to 100 refusals per day from the robot, the average refusal per day is 10. The owners analyze their herd and make sire choices accordingly - with good results from the Maid and Violet families. "We use sires that bring a high volume of milk, 100 kg of fat and more, positive for feet and legs, good conformation, and less than 2.8

Ferme Hamelon Profile for somatic cell count." On the feed side, cows are fed a high forage diet of hay and haylage at 30% moisture. "We give a maximum of 4 kg of corn, 2 kg of soybeans, minerals and calcium, along with pasture," mentions Dominic. Mr. Denis Hamel and Mme Fernande Goudreau, the parents of Dominic and Jonathan, made the decision to be certified organic in 1985. After years of using pesticides and herbicides, Mr. Hamel developed several health problems. After a medical consultation, he came to the conclusion that the conventional way of farming could be the cause of his health issues. In spite of high yielding fields and large cows with high production averages, profits were also not there. Organic farming seemed to be the best option for preserving Johnathan’s personal health and overall farm operation. It took three years for Ferme Hamelon to acquire organic certification. There are many stages, but first you have to register with an organic certification body. Annual inspections are required thereafter to maintain certification. Although there are many things to consider for organic compliance, to be eligible it takes three years of organic farming of the fields and one year for the dairy. A few examples that demonstrate the standards and challenges that come with organic certification are: • cows must have access to grazing when weather permits; • the calves must be fed with fresh organic milk; • the use of buffer zones for crops is necessary to preserve their organic character.

As Anne-Marie and Jonathan explain: "To be organic, we must, above all, believe in the value of organics. You cannot improvise yourself organic. It is a vision of how you manage your farm. You have to love challenges and work for the right reasons." Overall, organic farming has been a successful business decision for Ferme Hamelon and they have earned National Organic Program (NOP) certification by exceeding regular standards. As with any business, there are also challenges faced by the Hamel family. Work-life balance, quota management, Mother Nature's uncertainties, and the enormous amount of paperwork involved with organic farming. The Hamel family and their team are committed to prevention, however, the treatment of sick animals is sometimes difficult with organic certification. "It is always necessary to be proactive and try to prevent problems before they happen. If you maximize cow comfort; Jerseys will repay you big time, " says Jonathan. At the time of the last expansion, the Hamel family wanted to illustrate the deep values that are important to them: the family, the farm, the orchard, the L'Ancêtre cheese plant, the Lely company. They have incorporated all of these meaningful elements into a mural in the main barn. "In barns, it is rare that there is decoration - life," explains AnneMarie, "we wanted to add color, have an environment that resembles us! Every person has chosen to be illustrated in a way that represents themselves: one petting Jersey calves, another riding a motor cross or in a convertible. You can see the fields, the farm, the L’Ancêtre cheese plant, the orchard. Everything we believe in". 

On compte 1300 acres en culture, en rotation sur 6 ans : 4 ans en foin, 1 an soya et 1 an en orge. Élever autant d’animaux et cultiver une si grande superficie de terre, de manière biologique, oblige une saine gestion des ressources humaines. En plus des 4 propriétaires de l’entreprise, AnneMarie, la conjointe de Jonathan, et 5 autres employés à temps plein se divisent les nombreuses tâches à effectuer quotidiennement, où les forces de chacun sont mises à profit. Jonathan s’occupe de la gestion des champs et des bâtiments, alors que Dominic gère davantage le troupeau, bien que les décisions sont habituellement discutées entre eux. Plusieurs équipements s’ajoutent aux ressources humaines afin d’abattre le travail : 4 robots de traite Lely, 2 louves Lely Calm, 1 distributeur de fourrage Lely Vector et 3 racleurs automatiques Lely Discovery. L’utilisation des robots de traite offre plusieurs avantages : la traite se fait par quartier; l’agriculteur a accès à une multitude de données utiles; et les propriétaires ont constaté une augmentation de 20% du volume de lait, s’expliquant par une moyenne de traite par vache de 2.4. Combiner les forces de la technologie et d’une équipe travaillante permet d’être efficace dans les tâches quotidiennes. Les bâtiments de la Ferme Hamelon n’ont pas toujours été occupés par des Jerseys: c’est en 1998 que les 12 premières Jerseys sont achetées. En 1999, après un incendie majeur, les propriétaires ont fait l’acquisition de 3 troupeaux Holstein et d’un troupeau Jersey. Ayant toujours à l’esprit l’efficacité et la profitabilité, les Jerseys offraient, et offrent toujours, un rendement supérieur. Le troupeau a tranquillement changé de couleur, December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder


Profil de Ferme Hamelon passant du noir et blanc au brun. Jonathan explique : « La Jersey, avec sa petite taille, développe moins de problèmes de pieds et membres. La dureté des sabots noirs la protège également des blessures, malgré ses nombreux déplacements au pâturage. Sa facilité au vêlage est également une grande qualité : je dois dépoussiérer la vêleuse, puisqu’elle ne sert qu’une fois par deux ans! Pour un troupeau de cette taille, nous apprécions cet aspect de la race. » À ces qualités s’ajoutent les composantes élevées, les traits de santé supérieurs et le fait qu’elle soit facile à manipuler. Les propriétaires sont également membres fondateurs et actionnaires de la Fromagerie L’Ancêtre, situé à St-Grégoire. Le choix de la Jersey allait de soi : son rendement supérieur en gras permet un meilleur rendement fromagé. Jonathan et Dominic assurent une gestion rigoureuse des taures. Dû aux bonnes capacités reproductives de la Jersey, la Ferme Hamelon a une moyenne d’âge de 21 mois au premier vêlage. Jonathan ajoute : « Nous avons une moyenne de saillie de 1.7. J’utilise 450 doses de semence par année, une petite quantité comparativement au nombre de têtes de mon troupeau. » Les vaches sont enregistrées et la famille apprécie les visites et les conseils de Jean Marc Pellerin, le conseiller national de Jersey Canada et des autres partenaires de l’industrie. Les robots de traite ont été installés en 2015 et l’adaptation a été rapide : deux semaines! « La nature curieuse de la Jersey l’amène facilement vers le robot », explique Jonathan. Certaines vaches peuvent avoir jusqu’à 100 refus par jour, mais la ferme compte une moyenne de 10 refus par jour. Les propriétaires analysent leur troupeau et font des choix de taureaux en conséquence : la famille des Maids et des Violets sont habituellement des valeurs sûres pour la Ferme Hamelon. « Nous utilisons des taureaux qui apportent un bon volume de lait, 100 kg de gras et plus, positif pour les pieds et membres, une bonne conformation et moins de 2.8 pour le CCS. » Côté alimentation, les vaches sont nourries avec du foin et de l’ensilage de foin à 30% d’humidité. « Nous donnons un maximum de 4 kg de maïs, 2 kg de soya, des minéraux et du calcium et la balance est composée de pâturage. » M. Denis Hamel et Mme Fernande Goudreau, les parents de Dominic et Jonathan, sont ceux qui ont initialement, vers 1985, fait les démarches pour la certification biologique. En effet, après avoir fait l’usage de pesticides et d’herbicides, M. Hamel a développé plusieurs problèmes de santé importants. Après une consultation médicale, il en vient à la conclusion que sa pratique pourrait être la cause de ses ennuis de santé inquiétants. De plus, malgré des champs propres à haut rendement et des grosses vaches ayant des moyennes de production supérieures, les profits n’étaient pas au rendez-vous. L’élevage biologique a alors semblé la meilleure option pour préserver sa santé et son entreprise. Après plus de 3 ans d’attente et de démarches, Ferme Hamelon obtient la certification requise. Une bonne décision, comme en témoigne cette entreprise prospère et dynamique. Pour obtenir la certification biologique, il faut traverser plusieurs étapes.

 460 Jerseys pur-sang ou à pourcentage sur la ferme : environ 270 vaches en lait, 30 vaches taries et 160 sujets de relève.  On compte 1300 acres en culture. D’abord, il faut s’inscrire auprès d’un organisme de contrôle et de certification biologique. Ensuite, les inspections se répèteront annuellement afin de maintenir la certification. Entre autres, il faut compter 3 ans de culture biologique au champ et 1 an d’élevage biologique pour recevoir la certification. Un nombre pratiquement incalculable de normes doit être respecté : • les vaches doivent avoir accès au pâturage lorsque les conditions climatiques le permettent • les veaux doivent être nourris au lait biologique frais • l’utilisation de zones tampons lors de la culture des terres est nécessaire afin de préserver leur caractère biologique. Comme le disent Anne-Marie et Jonathan : « Pour être biologique, il faut avant tout y croire. Tu ne peux pas t’improviser biologique. C’est une valeur, une vision de gestion. Il faut aimer les défis et travailler pour les bonnes raisons ». Cette rigueur au travail leur a permis d’obtenir la certification National Organic Program (NOP), répondant à des normes plus élevées et plus strictes. Les défis vécus par la famille Hamel sont nombreux : la conciliation travail-famille, la gestion des quotas, les aléas de Mère Nature, l’importante paperasse entourant la gestion d’une entreprise agricole biologique. De plus, puisque l’aspect curatif est parfois difficile avec la certification bio, la famille Hamel, ainsi que leur équipe, misent sur la prévention. Ils doivent être proactifs et tenter de voir les problèmes avant qu’ils ne surviennent. « Il faut toujours optimiser au maximum le confort des vaches; la Jersey te le rendra bien », explique Jonathan. Lors du dernier agrandissement, la famille Hamel a voulu illustrer les valeurs profondes qui l’habitent : la famille, la ferme, le verger, la fromagerie L’Ancêtre, la compagnie Lely. Tous ces éléments se retrouvent à l’intérieur d’une immense fresque, ajoutant couleurs et gaieté au bâtiment principal. « Dans les fermes, c’est rare qu’il y ait de la déco, de la vie», explique Anne-Marie. « Nous voulions ajouter de la couleur, avoir un environnement qui nous ressemble! Chacun a choisi d’être illustré d’une manière qui lui est propre : un caresse les veaux Jerseys, l’autre se promène en motocross ou en décapotable. On y voit les champs, la ferme, la fromagerie l’Ancêtre, le verger. Tout ce qui est cher à nos yeux ». 

A Cow Called

Becky

By Donnie Jarrell Farmer’s always seem to have a story to share. They have stories from where they have been, what has happened to them or how they got to where they are today. In that respect, our family is no different. This story begins somewhere in the early 80’s. My Mom and Dad referred to themselves as ‘kids’ in the Jersey industry as they had just begun to get their feet wet in a market that seemed to be loaded with growth and opportunity and a life fulfilling way to one day raise a family. It started out with a conversation Dad had with long-time Jersey breeder, Jim Mortson. Dad was confused and a little bit irate why old school Jersey breeders would never offer their genetics for purchase. If a young dairy farmer was just starting out, why couldn’t he buy a nice young cow to add to his herd? It seemed reasonable but it didn’t seem attainable. At that time, Dad had no way of knowing that a conversation like that would be the building blocks to help shape the story of one of the greatest cows to have ever been bred at RJ Farms … RJF Remake Becky. From that conversation, Jim agreed to sell Dad a tremendous young calf named Echobrook Samare's Etta, for a price tag of $500, and who later earned a title of Reserve All Canadian Milking Yearling in the 80’s. Etta was a daughter of Echobrook Aimer’s Betta (Reserve Champion cow at the Royal in the late 70’s). From Etta, Dad bred five daughters, one which was RJF Becky. Becky was sired by a homegrown bull by the name of RJF Generator Nipper (son of Rock Ella BSV Natasha, Grand Champion at World Dairy Expo and Honorable Mention Champion at the Royal in ‘83). This cross led Dad to a crucial decision. Since RJF Becky only classified Good Plus 83 (due to being a threequartered cow), it was time to infuse some production back into the pedigree. RJF Becky had two daughters, one was RJF Lester Beth, who went on to be a Single Hall of Fame winner for production and a Lifetime 2-Star Brood cow. I remember Lester Beth when I was just a kid of maybe 7 or 8 years old. She was a giant - literally one of the biggest cows I had ever seen to that point in my life. There were times where I physically saw her bully Holsteins around our barn. So naturally, when you have a big framed and rugged cow mixed with very good milk production, you start to think you are on the right track in your breeding program. At the time, it was hard to know that Lester Beth would make her biggest contribution to the farm when she had RJF Remake Becky on June 1st, 1999.

Becky was somewhat of a normal heifer, and like my brother pointed out, she is probably one of the slowest maturing cows he has ever had the pleasure to work with. She started out as a 2-year-old being classified Very Good 85 and producing 6193 kg’s of milk. Every year and with every lactation, she would get a few points higher and give a few kg’s more, building to an eventual 122,000 kg’s of milk and a Supreme Excellent 96-7E title attached to her pedigree. Unlike any other cow that has been in our barn, Becky had a tremendous ability to consume large amounts of forage. After milking, she would continue to eat until late hours of the night. On more than one occasion, the water pressure in the barn would slow all the water bowls to a trickle, while Becky took a drink of course, chugging back water like she was chugging from a keg at a frat party. Her rugged approach carried over into the barnyard too. On rainy days at the feed bunk outside when all the cows were huddled together for warmth, Becky thrived in the thunder and lightning. She had the whole feed bunk to herself, having first choice at the very best forage, never being discouraged by the pounding rain on the cement. Cows are known to share characteristics similar to humans in some ways and some cows exhibit it more than others. Whenever a new employee stepped into the barn, Becky knew right away this was her chance to make it known she was not just another cow. She would find a way to escape from her pen if her gate was latched a different way or she would pull feed out of your hand, to let you know she was in fact the queen of hay intake. Her tenacity and willpower to live was both admirable and unmatched. The farm almost lost her on multiple occasions. As a 3-year-old, she picked up a serious stomach infection to her vagus nerve. An infection so bad that it kept her out of the Royal show string that year and we had to implant a choker in her stomach to relieve the pressure of bloating on the feed she would inhale. She had run-ins with a freaky bee sting that swelled up her neck when she was a mature cow or bouts of milk fever after calving that would send ordinary cows to the grave. Becky always found a way to pull through and she would come back stronger and tougher than before. It’s almost as if it motivated her to be better, give more milk and literally eat her way through every illness. Every now and then, a once in a lifetime cow comes around, and if you are lucky enough like my father was, you get to say

"It's a funny thing really ... most people have a dog or a cat they call a pet and part of their family. Growing up, I had cows. A lot of cows. Most days blended together working at the barn with the cows. My non-farming friends would say, 'Aren't all the cows the same? Don't they all look the same?' I guess somewhat they are, and I guess somewhat they do .... but not Becky. Rest easy girl. Enjoy your time in greener pastures, running in the Milky Way, whooping it up with all of the other great cows of our time. You deserve it." ~ Donnie Jarrell ~ December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder

that you were the owner and breeder of that cow since day one. It was exciting to watch her journey as a heifer, to then becoming an 18-Star (and growing) Brood cow with an attached classification of a Sup EX-96 cow seven times over - making her one of the highest classified Supreme Excellent Jerseys ever. When Tom Byers classified her for the 96th point, he mentioned that what made cows like Becky special were traits specific to a cow’s head in particular. Her nostril size and her muzzle size gave her the ability to consume forage at an unmatched pace and made for a cow that would thrive in a barn when it came to milk production. Her career highlights and accolades over the years included the Canadian Jersey Cow of the Year title in 2013, the current record holder in lifetime production awards for milk, fat and protein for mature cows in Canada, multiple All Canadian nominations, daughters and sons all over the world through heifer and embryo sales, an entire row (plus more) in our barn of daughters, grand daughters and great granddaughters. Her legacy is alive and well today, with a current highlight being her granddaughter, a show string favourite named RJF Gameday Surprise. This young cow is already following in Becky’s footsteps, with a Reserve All Ontario Milking Yearling title and All Canadian Milking Yearling nomination already attached to her resume. What more can be said about a cow who gave us so much. There is literally nothing more that Becky could have done for RJ Farms. She was and will always be a true legacy. The ironic part of her name is that of her sire "Remake" in the title. You will never "remake" another Becky. There is an element of her character that truly defines the impact she had on all of us. You didn’t have to work with cows every day or know what a good cow was to appreciate and admire a cow like Becky. She was a cow you could celebrate and connect with because we saw her as one of us. Whether she was posing for photos inside a gym, setting up shop in her own pen at a family wedding, or sharing popcorn with us in our victories at the Royal, Becky was part of our family and to each one of us she meant something different. We are fortunate that Dad had that conversation with Jim Mortson that led to the purchase of Etta, because as it turns out, that helped give the world a great cow legend. She was more than just a cow. She was Becky. 

2020 World Jersey Cattle Bureau Tour & Annual Meeting  Canada • June 20-26: Quebec to Ontario Pre-Tour • June 27-July 3: Ontario Main Tour & Waterloo Conference Program • July 4-9: Alberta Post-Tour • July 10-14: British Columbia Post-Tour • July 15-21: California Post Tour (San Francisco to LA)

Sponsorship Opportunities In this day-and-age of fundraising, everyone receives requests from many organizations annually. Whether it is providing milk on the bus, on-farm coffee breaks or financial support - sponsoring agricultural events has many benefits and reflects your passion, values and commitment to the well-being of the industry. Jersey Canada is looking for this type of support for the Canadian World Jersey Cattle Bureau (WJCB) tour and annual meeting in June/July of 2020. Although this event is a few years away, planning has begun and we invite you to consider joining us as a sponsor and look forward to your participation as we showcase Canadian Jersey cattle and our beautiful country that we call home. Canada plays an important role in cattle genetics and breed efficiency and has its pulse on the economics of dairy farming and what that means to the individual producer. The Jerseys small body size and impressive metabolic system can be the perfect fit to meet the profit model of many farm operations locally, nationally and globally. In 2020, dairy enthusiasts from around the world will come together to learn, network and enjoy what the Jersey breed has to offer, and in particular, Canadian Jersey cattle. Jersey Canada, along with the experienced travel professionals of AgriTours Canada, will be hosting the WJCB 2020 event and we have three levels of sponsorship. Pre and post tour activity will also take place beyond Ontario in Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia, with an option for a California add-on tour as well. Each level of sponsorship provides an opportunity for marketing and/or the ability to ‘give-back’ and contribute. We welcome all support as it helps us shape the tour in its infancy. Principal Sponsors - SUPREME EXCELLENT (SUP-EX) SUP-EX level sponsors support premium conference events and activities with outstanding opportunities to promote their organization and its products/services. Examples: dinners, conference guest speakers, facility/technical visits, entertainment, motor coach day tours, premium financial contribution. Major Sponsors - EXCELLENT (EX) EX level sponsors support major events and gatherings and receive excellent visibility and the chance to engage with industry participants and visitors. Examples: major financial contribution for pre/post tour meals, giftware (jackets, hats, notepads), silent auction items, grab bags featuring sponsor logos, conference audio-visual rental. Supporting Sponsors - VERY GOOD (VG) VG level sponsors have the wonderful opportunity to be included by providing in-kind donations and contributions. Examples: coffee breaks, meeting rooms, technical visits for day trips, box/bag lunches, and other daily requirements. No offering is too small and VG support is important to the overall experience of a world class tour. Please join us and call today! For more information on sponsorship and how you can be a part of this world class dairy event, please contact Richard Buck at AgriTours Canada. All donations will be sent to Jersey Canada care of the Sponsorship Committee to prepare and plan for the dairy event of the decade.

CanWest DHI, Canadian Dairy Network and Valacta Partnership

Guelph, Ontario & Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec (Media Release November 21, 2017) CanWest DHI, Canadian Dairy Network and Valacta are pleased to announce an agreement in principle for a progressive new partnership in the dairy industry. The three industry partners are planning a transition that would lead to a unified market presence and joint management of producer services over the coming year. The new partnership will be governed by a producer-driven governance structure to be finalized and approved by members and owners. “We have worked closely with our partners at CanWest DHI and the Canadian Dairy Network for more than two decades and this is a natural extension of our historic working relationship,” announced Valacta Chair Pierre Lampron. The new partnership would bring together the leading dairy herd improvement organizations responsible for milk recording and genetic evaluations in Canada, with the knowledge transfer activities of the Valacta Centre of Expertise. The new partnership would continue to operate from their primary business locations in Guelph, Ontario and Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec. The combined organizations will bring together a team of more than 500 people dedicated to providing services to the more than 11,000 dairy farms across the country. Canadian Dairy Network Chair, Norm McNaughton, echoed Mr. Lampron’s comments by stating, “This is an important milestone in the evolution of our industry. We are demonstrating that not only can we work together across the country, we can also work together across different areas of our industry”. CanWest and Canadian Dairy Network are located in the same Guelph building and the new partnership would continue to manage four lab operations in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. In addition to milk recording and genetic evaluation services, the partners would continue their responsibilities for the analysis of raw milk payment and milk quality services for Dairy Farmers of Quebec, SaskMilk, Alberta Milk and the BC Milk Marketing Board as well as specialized milk analysis services. These lab services will be in addition to the 6 million individual cow samples collected and tested annually by the partners. CanWest DHI Chair Ed Friesen stated, “I'm proud of the leadership demonstrated by the respective Boards. They have the vision and commitment to position the dairy industry for the future and ensure that we have the ability and infrastructure to support Canadian dairy producers and keep us globally competitive for years to come.” The combined organizations will leverage their respective strengths to more fully integrate herd management and genetic/ genomic information and knowledge transfer for dairy farmers. The ability to combine these key elements of profitable dairy herd management services will provide Canadian dairy farmers with the tools necessary to ensure our global leadership position both for efficient milk production and dairy cattle genetics. CanWest DHI, Canadian Dairy Network and Valacta are farmerrun organizations providing profitable dairy management and genetic solutions to dairy producers across Canada. 

Partenariat entre CanWest DHI, le Réseau laitier canadien et Valacta

Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Québec et Guelph, Ontario (Pour diffusion le 21 novembre 2017) CanWest DHI, le Réseau laitier canadien et Valacta sont heureux d'annoncer une entente de principe pour un partenariat progressif qui se traduira en valeur ajoutée pour l'industrie laitière. Les trois partenaires planifient une transition pouvant mener au cours de l'année à venir vers une présence unifiée serait sur le marché et une gestion conjointe des services offerts aux producteurs. Ce nouveau partenariat administré par les producteurs selon une structure de gouvernance à finaliser et approuver par les membres et propriétaires. « Nous travaillons en étroite collaboration avec nos partenaires de CanWest DHI et le Réseau laitier canadien depuis plus de deux décennies. Ce partenariat constitue un prolongement naturel de notre relation de travail historique », a déclaré le président de Valacta, Pierre Lampron. Le nouveau partenariat réunirait les principales organisations d'amélioration des bovins laitiers responsables du contrôle laitier et de l’évaluation génétique au Canada et le centre d’expertise Valacta avec ses activités de transfert des connaissances. Ce nouveau partenariat serait exploité à partir des principaux établissements des partenaires à Guelph, en Ontario et à Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue au Québec. Les organisations combinées formeront une équipe de plus de 500 personnes dédiées à fournir des services à plus de 11 000 fermes laitières à travers le pays. Norm McNaughton, le président du Réseau laitier canadien, a fait écho aux commentaires de M. Lampron en déclarant : « Il s'agit d'une étape importante dans l'évolution de notre industrie. Nous démontrons que non seulement nous pouvons travailler ensemble à travers le pays, mais que différents secteurs de notre industrie peuvent travailler ensemble ». En plus des deux places d’affaire principales de Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue et de Guelph (CanWest et le Réseau laitier canadien étant situés dans le même immeuble de Guelph) le partenariat opérerait entre autres quatre laboratoires au Québec, en Ontario, en Alberta et en ColombieBritannique). En plus des services de contrôle laitier et d’évaluation génétique, la nouvelle entité continuerait notamment à assumer la responsabilité de l’analyse pour le paiement et pour la qualité du lait cru pour les Producteurs de lait du Québec, SaskMilk, Alberta Milk et le BC Milk Marketing Board de même que des services d’analyse du lait spécialisés. Ces services de laboratoire s’ajoutent aux 6 millions d’échantillons individuels de vaches collectés et testés à chaque année par les partenaires. Le président de CanWest DHI, Ed Friesen, a déclaré : « Je suis fier du leadership démontré par les conseils d’administration respectifs. Ils ont la vision et l’engagement de positionner notre industrie pour l’avenir et de s’assurer que nous ayons la capacité et les infrastructures pour soutenir les producteurs laitiers de tout le Canada et nous maintenir ainsi compétitifs non seulement à l’échelle nationale mais à l’échelle mondiale pour les années à venir ». Les organisations combinées tireront parti de leurs forces respectives pour mieux intégrer la gestion de troupeau, l’information génétique/génomique et le transfert des connaissances. La capacité de combiner ces éléments-clés pour une gestion rentable du troupeau fournira aux producteurs laitiers canadiens les outils nécessaires pour assurer notre position de leader mondial à la fois pour une production laitière efficace et pour la génétique des bovins laitiers. CanWest DHI, le Réseau laitier canadien et Valacta sont des organismes dirigés majoritairement par des producteurs laitiers de toutes les provinces canadiennes et qui leur offrent des solutions de gestion rentables.  For more information, please contact / Pour plus d’information, contacter: Brian Van Doormaal: brian@cdn.ca Daniel Lefebvre: dlefebrvre@valacta.com Neil Petreny: npetreny@canwestdhi.com General Manager, Canadian Dairy Network General Manager, Valacta General Manager, CanWest DHI (519) 767-9660 (est/poste 101) (514) 459-3030 (est/poste 7579) (519) 824-2320 (est/poste 236) December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder 56

In Memory of Carol Murphy

In Memory of Thys Haambuckers

June 23, 1961 - May 14, 2017 Thys Haambuckers was born June 23, 1961 in Eys, Limburg, Netherlands and grew up on his parent’s dairy farm. As a youth, he loved working with his father’s race horses and was an active member of the local pony club competing in eventing and dressage. He attended agricultural college and came to Canada for a three month practicum at Vink Farms in Greendale. Thys fell in love with Canada and decided to immigrate, but first had to return to Holland and complete his degree along with his cheese making certificate. Thys immigrated to Canada in 1981, when he was 19, and worked with dairy farms in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. He met his wife Wilma a couple of years later and they were married in 1985. Their first son Michael was born in 1987, followed by Travis in 1991 and Tyler in 1993. The Haambuckers then moved to Salmon Arm, where Thys worked on the Mcleod Farm until 1999. Thys and Wilma then started their own dairy farm, Glorybound Holsteins and Triple S Jerseys, eventually purchasing their current dairy farm on Deep Creek Road in Enderby, BC in 2004. Today, under the Triple S, Sunny Hill and Fantasy prefixes, the family milks 60 cows with a quarter being Jersey. Thys worked at Sure Crop Feeds for 13 years and was heavily involved in his community. He participated in a number of leadership roles within the dairy industry such as: 4-H Leader of the Shuswap Dairy Club, President of the Salmon Arm 4-H Council, President of the North Okanagan Holstein Club, Dairy Director for the Interior Provincial Exhibition (IPE) and in 2016 was elected as Vice President of the IPE Board of Directors. Thys is survived by his wife Wilma, sons Michael (Gina), Travis, and Tyler (Corissa), his father Leonard Haambuckers, sister Thea Haambuckers, and brother Laurens (Magda) Haambuckers. The entire family helps out on the farm and they show cattle in British Columbia and Alberta. Thys was instrumental in promoting the Jersey breed and in honour of his contribution, the IPE paid tribute with the Thys Haambuckers Memorial Jersey Show. Thys will be missed by his family, friends and the dairy community. •

Carol Murphy (Somerville) passed suddenly, at her home in Sauble Beach on October 7, 2017 at the age of 63. Devoted mother of Sara Lyn Murphy (Jason) and Lisa Murphy-Gemmill (Aaron) and loving grandmother of Jonas, Levi, Andre, Odessa and Roczen. Much loved daughter of Jean and the late Fyfe (1978). Carol will be sadly missed by her friends in the agricultural community, 4-H Ontario, dairy memorabilia collectors, and many more. Even though her first love was Holsteins (raised at Actondale Holsteins), Carol grew to love Jerseys. She and her husband David owned and operated Valleydown Jerseys. Even long after their herd was gone, Carol never lost her love for cattle or the barn. She enjoyed spending time visiting farms or assisting friends getting cattle ready at the show. Carol was known for the “Care Packages” she sent to friends and numerous others. She was very interested in the history of the dairy industry and the various breeders and farms. If Carol came across articles on your herd or even your grandparents’ herd, she made copies and mailed them to you. She also researched information and copied articles on topics she thought you might be interested in and sent them along. Carol collected milk bottles and other dairy items and gradually grew her hobby into a dairy memorabilia business. She collected information on many different dairies in Ontario and was always willing to share her knowledge. Carol had more than her share of challenges in her life and in spite of them she always had a positive outlook and was constantly putting others ahead of herself. The outpouring of sympathy, touching comments and wonderful stories about Carol on Facebook was certainly an indication of how many lives she touched with her generosity and caring. • Submitted by Vince & Bev Brennan

In Memory of Keith Kent Butcher It is with sadness that the family of Keith Butcher of Bell City Jerseys announce the passing of a wonderful father, loving husband and much-loved grandfather on October 8th. Keith lived a long and fulfilling life involved in the Canadian Jersey Cattle Club (now Jersey Canada) in which his involvement helped lead the way to the success that the breed is having to this day. Keith was one of the “original” industry leaders – the youngest President in Jersey Canada’s history, an Honorary Life Member, international evaluator of cattle, an ambassador for the Jersey cow throughout the world, and a mentor to some of today’s leaders of the Jersey breed. Most importantly however, he was a mentor to all who happily relived his experiences as he told them. His life was his family farm, friends and above all, his love and dedication for his family. We will miss him greatly but will remember all that he taught us along the way to live our lives to the fullest. The family would like to extend its appreciation and gratitude for the condolences received from the Jersey fraternity past and present throughout the world. As his little great-granddaughters have said “Great Grandpa will live in our hearts forever”. Submitted by John McDougall 60

Beautiful BC Wedding John and Judy Chard of Joamy Farm Ltd in D e wd n e y, British Columbia, are pleased to announce the wedding of their daughter Beverly to Craig Gordon, son of Garnet and Kathy Gordon, of Regina, Saskatchewan. The wedding was held in Deroche on the waterfront of the Fraser River on August 5, 2017. Beverly and Craig are now living in Yarrow, BC where Craig is teaching at a high school in Abbotsford and Beverly is working as a veterinarian at Greenbelt Veterinary Services.• December 2017 Canadian Jersey Breeder

From Our Family to Yours

Thank you to everyone who has purchased breeding tock from RJ Farms this year. Best of luck with your animals and we greatly appreciate your confidence in our breeding program..

RJ Farms would like to welcome everyone to our farm at the time of the Jersey Ontario Annual Meeting. Bobby is the 3rd generation from the Jarrell family serving as Jersey Ontario President. We are very excited to take you on a tour of our new heifer facility.

We wish our Jersey friends around the world a very happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our Jersey families that have lost loved ones this year. A pecial thank you to those who reached out to us when RJF Remake Becky passed away.
