The American Jersey Cattle Association promotes the use of authentic and unaltered photographic images of Jersey animals, and disapproves of the use of any photographic images that alter the body of the Jersey animal. The American Jersey Cattle Association therefore requests that all photographic images of Jersey animals submitted for publication in the Jersey Journal contain no alterations to the body of the animal. Despite its best efforts to ensure that only unaltered photographs of Jersey animals are used in this publication, the American Jersey Cattle Association cannot guarantee that every photographic image of a Jersey animal is authentic and unaltered.

Sadie Mae Bourne was born on January 24, 2019, to Joel and Danielle Bourne, TJ Classic Jerseys, Ansonia, Ohio. The couple’s first child weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz. and was 21 inches long. Paternal grandparents are Greg and Debbie Bourne, also of TJ Classic Jerseys. Mil-View Jerseys, Millersburg, Ohio, was one of just six dairies in the country to be honored with the National Mastitis Council’s highest milk quality award at a luncheon held in conjunction with its annual meeting in Savannah, Ga., in early February. The dairy owned by David and Mark Miller received a platinum-level award through the organization’s National Dairy Quality Awards program. An additional 18 dairies were honored with gold-level awards and another 17 with silver-level awards. In addition to milk quality indicators like somatic cell count and standard plate count, dairies were evaluated for practices for milking routine, cow comfort, udder health monitoring, and disease treatment and prevention and for overall herd health and welfare strategies and adherence to drug use and record keeping systems.

New Format for Pennsylvania All-American

Yogurt Before Meals May Reduce Inflammation

A study funded by the National Dairy Council, the non-profit organization funded by the national dairy checkoff program, shows that low-fat yogurt consumed before meals may reduce risk for inflammation. Research was conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on healthy, pre-menopausal women and reported in the May 15, 2018, issue of The Journal of Nutrition. The study explored the hypothesis that eating yogurt before a high-fat, high-calorie meal may help reduce inflammation by improving the integrity of the intestinal lining, thus preventing endotoxins from crossing into the bloodstream. The news is promising for the prevention

of chronic inflammation, which is a factor in inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis and asthma and associated with obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases.

Opportunities Don’t Happen. You Create Them. “The secret of change is to focus your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” ~Socrates

For more than 65 years, the Jersey Journal has been known as the “Voice of the Jersey Breed.” The magazine has been the source of everything Jersey within the dairy industry. It is a success story in its own. The purchase of the Jersey Bulletin and the creation of the Jersey Journal was even noted as one of the six most important decisions the American Jersey Cattle Club had made in a study done in 1967. As the only monthly, all Jersey publication in the world, the Jersey Journal is not just a carrier of news for the American Jersey Cattle Association and National All-Jersey Inc., but it is the most reliable and consistent platform for Jersey breeders to develop a marketing plan and build a positive image for their business. In 65 years of print, the publication has seen many milestones reached, new benchmarks established and heard many stories shared by our Registered Jersey breeders. It has also seen the struggles of the dairy industry as well as the triumphs. One thing has always remained constant for the magazine—the loyalty of our breeders and their support to the publication. 2019 will be a year of increased opportunity for the Jersey Journal. In these trying economic times, the magazine has felt the pain of our readers and supporters. We know we need to meet your needs and wants and deliver news in the most timely and efficient fashion we can. With the new Communications department comes the plan for a more extensive online media presence for the USJersey organizations and Jersey Journal. Later this spring, a new real-time Jersey Journal website will be unveiled. It will include more advertising opportunities for breeders and industry friends.

The format will allow for more extended Jersey and dairy event coverage as well as opening the door for herd promotion through added advertising exposure. In the coming months, watch your inbox for a survey requesting your input on what you would like to have provided through the new website. The opportunities will be endless. While a digital presence will become more prominent, your beloved print magazine will not go away. It will only be enhanced with new opportunities in a more real-time scenario. Its presence remains just as important today as it was 65 years ago. There has never been a more essential time to begin a regular advertising program for your herd. With your support of the Jersey Journal, you are doing more than just backing the magazine. You are building your own herd’s reputation and image. The familiarity you will establish with the more than 2,200 subscribers of the Jersey Journal is immeasurable. Their trust in your breeding program, from your regular presence, in the magazine and on the website, will have them seeking you out. They may not be ready to buy cows today, but when they are, they will come to you because of the positive image you have built through Jersey Journal. This will help you establish a premium price in the market place.

Print media is permanent. It can always be picked up and read over and over again for years to come. Digital and social media can be here today and gone tomorrow. The increased digital presence will only enhance the print version with added features and more exposure to the world. Remember that while opportunities are growing for us due to change within the industry, the same is true for you and your business. Jersey Journal will help create your opportunities.

Jersey Milk Becoming More Nutrient-Dense

T

he American Jersey Cattle Association (AJCA) has been publishing an annual production summary for decades. This state-of-the-union address of sorts for production is a useful measure for evaluating breed progress and a benchmark from which Jersey breeders can compare their herds. So, where does the Jersey breed stand for year-end 2018? The official breed lactation average is now 20,041 lbs. milk, 977 lbs. fat and 741 lbs. protein, with component averages of 4.88% fat and 3.7% protein. On a Cheddar cheese yield basis, average standardized production is 2,521 lbs. These numbers represent a modest drop in production (less than 1% for all measures of production) for the first time in a dozen years. The number of records in the breed average—101,766—is fourth best in breed history, up more than 2,600 cows from 2017. On an actual basis, average production is 17,630 lbs. milk, 863 lbs. fat and 650 lbs. protein, with a cheese yield equivalent of 2,215 lbs. Actual protein yield is the sole production measurement that did not decrease in 2018; this measure ties the breed-high level of 2017. When expressed as pounds of energy-corrected milk (ECM), actual average production is 21,913 lbs. The silver lining for the year 2018 is cheese yield per hundredweight of Jersey milk, which rose slightly this past year. Though

Jersey milk has always been more desirable for processors, it is now becoming even more so. The amount of cheese that processors can make from Jersey milk has steadily risen over the past decade, increasing from 12.15 lbs. per hundredweight in 2009 to 12.58 lbs. in 2018. In a nutshell, Jersey milk is becoming more nutrient dense. This is good news for consumers and cow caretakers as well. With a smaller carbon footprint, the Jersey is the dairy model that can best feed a growing world population that now consumes more milk products than fluid milk and loses land for food production every day. The Jersey is the model for dairy producers as well, whose bottom lines reflect more than pounds of production. Many of the nation’s top Jersey producers are filling the tank with volumes of ECM that were unimaginable decades ago. Six of them have lactation averages over 30,000 lbs. ECM—Cold Run Jerseys LLC, Salem, Ohio, at 34,893 lbs.; D & D Jerseys, Newton, Wis., at 33,354 lbs.; Joseph and Debra Brant, Cuba City, Wis., at 33,075 lbs.; John and Edwin Maxwell, Donahue, Iowa, at 32,860 lbs.; Leroy Miller, Mayslick, Ky., at 30,296 lbs.; and Ahlem Foothill Farms, Hilmar, Calif., at 30,013 lbs. These dairy producers, who milk anywhere from 20 to more

Joseph Frommelt poses with Jo-De-Bran Topeca Maxine, Excellent-91%, a favorite in the herd he helps to operate with his grandparents, Joseph and Debra Brant. The 22-cow herd is the nation's top milk producer on an m.e. basis. "Maxine" contributed to the effort with 24,240 lbs. milk, 1,290 lbs. fat and 890 lbs. protein actual at 3-3.

Cold Run Jerseys LLC, operated by the Herron family—Tara, James and David—is the nation's leading fat producer on an actual and standardized m.e. basis. The 212-cow dairy produced 34,893 lbs. of energy corrected milk (m.e.) last year. Photo courtesy Maggie Seller/ Hoard's Dairyman.

than 2,000 cows in diverse management styles across the country, are proving the Jersey is the most profitable cow to milk. They are capitalizing on other Jersey advantages that don’t show up on the milk check, including feed efficiency, reproductive efficiency, stocking rates, calving ease, better mobility and longer herd life. Because progress is measured over the long haul—encompassing peaks, valleys and plateaus—the breed’s annual production summary also includes an evaluation of production trends. Based on the statistics of the previous 10 years, the breed lactation average is projected to reach 21,550 lbs. milk, 1,080 lbs. fat and 814 lbs. protein by 2025, with a cheese yield equivalent of 2,765 lbs. Cheese makers are projected to be able to make 12.83 lbs. of product per hundredweight of Jersey milk by 2025. This well-founded optimism is based on decades of steady growth, especially over the past several years. If these projections are realized, the averages for 2018 will be just a blip on the historical radar. For the breed to retain its competitive advantages, Jersey breeders need to increase production, maintain (or improve) components and maintain optimum cow size for efficiency and health, as identified in the Capper Cady environmental impact study (Journal of Dairy Science, Volume 95, Issue 1). In the past, the Jersey Journal’s annual production summary included mature equivalent (m.e.) lactation averages, calculated on a standardized 305-day, twice-daily milking, m.e. basis. In November

2018, the AJCA Board approved reporting of actual herd averages as well. Jersey breeders now have two benchmarks from which to evaluate milk, fat, protein and cheese yield production. Production is included for lactations meeting the registry minimum of Generation Count 4 and higher. Records included in the average have data collection ratings of 85 or higher. Herds identified in the rankings have a minimum of 10 cows.

Cinnamon Ridge Jerseys is the top protein-producing herd in the country. The farm owned and operated by the Maxwell family runs a thriving agritourism business as well and recently began making cheese from the 198-cow herd. Cows are milked with Lely robots.

D&D Jerseys, owned by Dan Stock and Donna Phillips is the top cheese yield producer on both an actual and m.e. basis. A standout in the milking string is Dodan Crisp Vision Crinkle-ET, Very Good-86%, with three lactations, all over 23,000 lbs. milk, and a best record of 32,885 lbs. milk, 1,342 lbs. fat and 1,177 lbs. protein at 3-7.

MARCH 2019

High M.E. Herds Many of this year’s top herds have ranked among the nation’s best in previous years as well. Included in this group is the country’s leading Jersey herd for standardized milk production, the 22-cow herd owned by Joseph and Debra Brant. The Jo-De-Bran herd has a 2018 lactation average of 27,167 lbs. milk, 1,272 lbs. fat and 971 lbs. protein, with a cheese yield of 3,315 lbs. Nationally, the measures rank fourth for fat and third for protein and cheese yield. Two members of the herd made actual 305-day records over 30,000 lbs. milk: Jo-De-Bran Lincoln Muffin, Very Good-87%, and Jo-De-Bran T-Bone Shine-Twin, Very Good-85%. The Brant’s milking string includes another 15 other Very Good cows and six Excellents (none lower) and has an appraisal average of 85.6%. Another herd to retain its top rankings from last year is Cinnamon Ridge Jerseys, owned by brothers John and Edwin Maxwell and (continued to page 22)

The amount of Cheddar cheese that can be produced per hundredweight of Jersey milk has increased dramatically in recent years due to increases in fat and protein test. Based on statistics from the past 10 years, cheese yield per hundredweight is projected to reach 12.83 lbs. by 2025.

This record and the senior two-year-old milk record of her herdmate, JX Cinnamon Ridge Machete Oregon {4}, Very Good-82%, were added to the National Class Leader list in 2018. “Oregon {4}” made 31,310 lbs. milk, 1,307 lbs. fat and 1,057 lbs. protein at 2-9.

The herd also ranks among the best for genetic merit, currently #16 in the nation with a herd average JPI of +81 (91% genotyped). With 15 members producing 305-day records over 26,000 lbs. milk, D & D Jerseys leads the nation for actual milk production,

JERSEY JOURNAL


Policy for Maximizing Profit with Jerseys The American Jersey Cattle Association (AJCA) Board of Directors encourages its members to employ the following management practices to improve herd profitability: Maximize the genetic potential of the herd by • Making a minimum of 80% of all matings to a group of genotyped young bulls enrolled in progeny test programs. • Breeding heifers A.I. to proven or selected young bulls that qualify for the AJCA Young Sire Program and/ or the Genetic Diversity Program; if natural service for heifers is a management necessity, using bulls that qualify for those programs. • Maintaining accurate identification and breeding records. • Participating in AJCA performance and functional type appraisal programs that provide the basis for genetic evaluations. • Making mating assignments that maximize profit and minimize inbreeding. Challenge the genetic capacity of the herd by • Feeding ample quantities of properly balanced rations to milking cows. • Minimizing involuntary culling so that voluntary culling can be maximized. • Providing for the special nutritional and management needs of dry cows. • Having cows in proper body condition. • Providing special attention to calf raising practices to minimize losses and optimize growth. • Using new technologies that provide economical advantages in your situation. Exploit Jersey advantages by • Using tamper-evident ID and registering calves before they are six (6) month of age. • Freshening heifers under 24 months of age. • Becoming involved in milk marketing efforts that gain equitable payment for milk components. • Becoming involved in cattle marketing efforts that supplement herd income. • Using your herd and farm to project a positive image for the Jersey breed and the dairy industry.

JERSEY JOURNAL


Jersey breeders have seen the acronyms JPI, GJPI, JUI and GJUI in the Predicted Transmitting Ability section of performance pedigrees and progeny reports from the American Jersey Cattle Association (AJCA) for many years. Now, they may also see the acronyms URPI and URUI on these reports for some animals. So, what do these acronyms stand for? They are abbreviations used for the indices Unregistered Performance Index (URPI) and Unregistered Udder Index (URUI). They are used for unregistered animals— Jersey females and males that are permanently identified but do not qualify for registry status in the AJCA herd book. They are equivalent to Jersey Performance Index (JPI) and Jersey Udder Index (JUI), for animals with HR and GC status. The AJCA Board of Directors approved the distinction at their November 2018 meeting so Jersey breeders can quickly differentiate genetic evaluations for HR and GC animals versus unregistered animals. As with Jersey Performance Index, URPI will also be accompanied with a Reliability. Why Unregistered? Animals that are not recorded in the AJCA herd book with HR or GC status are identified as unregistered. Their registration names will include a UR prefix and a GC suffix of {0}. There are several instances Jersey breeders may have unregistered animals in their herds. Most commonly, animals from unknown sires and dams are recorded as

The genetic evaluations for URPI and URUI are highlighted on this young unregistered bull’s pedigree. In normal GC sequence, he would be recorded with GC5 status because he is sired by an HR bull (River Valley Cece Chrome-ET) and out of a GC4 dam (Quaresma Action Venice {4}). However, because his BBR is 86 (under the qualifying level of 87), he is designated as unregistered so receives a URPI and URUI.

MARCH 2019

UR animals. Females: If a female does not have at least one known parent (sire or dam), she is ineligible for HR or GC status. She will receive genetic evaluations for URPI and URUI. If one of her parents is known, she will be recorded at the GC1 level and have the suffix {1} in her name. She will receive genetic evaluations for both JPI and JUI. Bulls: Bulls that are eligible for registration with GC status are initially recorded as unregistered. Their names will include the UR prefix and corresponding {0} suffix. After these bulls have been genotyped

and declared free from undesirable nonJersey traits, they will receive the appropriate GC status. Bulls may be registered in the AJCA herd book starting at GC3 when they have Breed Base Representation (BBR) values of 87 or greater and their sire and dam have been genotyped as well. These bulls will receive a genetic evaluation for Genomic JPI and Genomic JUI. Effective November 1, 2019, these minimums increase to GC4 with a BBR of 100. The bottom line: if you see URPI and URUI on an animal’s pedigree and progeny report, it has been recorded in the AJCA herd book as unregistered. Page 37

Members convened for discussion, to hear from representatives of the American Jersey Cattle Association and industry guest speakers and to celebrate accomplishments in the past year. The Tennessee Jersey Cattle Club is the oldest state club in the nation and was founded in 1876. The first Registered Jersey in Tennessee was entered into Herd Book I in the year 1867. Business Meeting The keynote speaker for the meeting was Danny Sutton, dairy administrator for the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. He explained the goals of the state’s new Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Charles Hatcher and also discussed the ways his office can serve and advise producers in a challenging dairy economy. AJCA-NAJ area representative Jason Robinson gave a report on the national association.

North Carolina Breeders Honored The North Carolina Jersey Cattle Association (NCJCA) held its annual meeting on January 26, 2019, at the Agriculture Center in Statesville, N.C. Members tended to organization business, honored Jersey breeders for achievements with their cattle and heard updates from industry guests. Guest speaker Craig May, Kings Mountain, kept the group entertained with anecdotes about the dairy industry and stories from 30-plus years as a vocational agriculture teacher. He left them with sage perspective for weathering the current economy: though we can’t control the wind, we can adjust our sails. Members were brought up to speed on national Jersey activities by Erica Davis, area representative for the American Jersey Cattle Association (AJCA) and National All-Jersey Inc. (NAJ). She reported that the AJCA celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018 in conjunction with the World Jersey Cattle Bureau International Conference and registered 132,166 animals—second high in breed history. A record 49,067 Jersey females were genotyped during 2018, nearly double that of the previous year. Davis noted that complete results from the A2/A2 milk study funded by NAJ should be available later this year. She told the group efforts to get multiple component pricing adopted in the southeast Federal Milk Marketing Orders have stalled but will resume when market conditions become more favorable. She encouraged Jersey breeders to capitalize on cattle marketing opportunities at the Kentucky National Sale on April 4 in Louisville, Ky., and the National Heifer Sale on June 28 in Syracuse, N.Y. She also urged them to sign up for the Jersey ValueAdded 101 Workshop sponsored by NAJ in Brattleboro, Vt., from April 9-11. Members were invited to attend the 2019 North Carolina Field Day and con-

GENETIC IMPROVEMENT

Sires Ranked by Number of Sons Registered, 2018 they have a +3.9 Productive Life. This average is higher than the raw average of their PTAs. The bulls with the highest PTAs are contributing the most to the average genetic merit of sons registered in 2018.

In 2018, there were 132,166 animals were recorded by the American Jersey Cattle Association. Those animals were sired by 3,185 different bulls (3,048 recorded sires). Which bulls are used most widely? Who are the leading sires of sons? A total of 43 bulls sired 10 or more sons registered in 2018. In total, these bulls sired 25.7% of all Jerseys—male and female—and 34.3% of all males (3,147) recorded during the year. The 40 bulls siring 10 or more sons are listed below. Studying the top 10, 20 or 30 of these bulls is important for two reasons. First, they are largely determining the breed’s production capability in the near future. Second, they are going to continue to exert their influence upon the breed’s genetic merit for production and functional fitness for many years through their registered sons. Among the top 10 sires, are a mix of GCode and Active A.I. bulls, showing both the confidence in genomics, but the strength of daughter proofs. The relative genetic contribution of the 43 sires with 10 or more sons to the genetic pool for 2018, is indicated by the weighted average (bottom line of the table). The average GJPI is +143 of the sires and

Bulls by Group The top 10 bulls ranked by the number of sons registered sired a total of 15,551 offspring, of which 592 were sons. The total number of offspring in this category more than doubled this group from a year ago with 7,761 total offspring. The group carried the highest GJPI average at +161 and averaged +835 for PTA Milk; $535 Cheese Merit Dollars; and $510 for Net Merit dollars. Other averages are +4.3 for Productive Life, a GJUI of +20.6, +161 for GJPI and an 87% Reliability. The second group of 10 sires, was very similar to the first group in traits with several of the high GJUI sires and also several sons over 1,000M. The group sired 196 sons and more than 7,900 daughters. The last two groups of bulls are made up of an even mix of high production and high type bulls with nearly 300 registered sons. * Bulls included are Generation Count 4 or higher with a BBR 94 or above.

PERFORMANCE REPORT Top 25 Records in History and National Class Leader List The Top 25 Records for Milk, Protein and Fat completed in the history of AJCA production testing programs are listed below. The National Class Leader List summarizes the 10 highest lactations for milk, protein, fat, and cheese yield in nine age categories. Lactations are 305 days (or less) in length and are official on the AJCA records. These lists include lactations added to the database through December 31, 2018. To qualify for these lists, all

test days included in a completed 305- or 365-day lactation record must occur in a herd or herds enrolled in the Production Records Plus, TPE-Plus, REAP Plus programs, or be a Generation Count {4} or higher for registration status. An asterisk in the column after days milked indicates that the animal was milked more than twice daily during part or all of the lactation. A “V” following the record indicates that it has been verified.

Golf, a passion he shared with his loving wife of 33 years, Arlene, took them to many countries, where they participated with the International Seniors and the American Seniors organizations. Traveling, making new friends, the theatre and charity work made for an inseparable relationship. He is also survived by two daughters, Mary M. (Rodney) Reames of Charlotte, N.C., and Mindy M. Roberts of Cornelius, N.C.; two sisters, Geneva (Owen) Rhodes and Pauline McKitrick; a brother, Jack McKitrick; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. He will be remembered as being a kind, gentle man who strived to make the lives of others more fulfilled. In lieu of flowers, show an act of kindness to someone in his honor. At his request, there was no memorial service as John wanted to be remembered by the last time he shook your hand with a big smile and asked if you were having a good day.
