ALL AMERICAN AND POT O’GOLD NOMINATIONS

One of the largest Jersey events of the year is the celebration of the little brown cow in Louisville, KY during the All American festivities. During that week, JMS hosts two events, the Pot O’Gold Sale and the All American Sale.
The Pot O’Gold Sale, presented by Cow’s Match, will be held the evening of November 9 and is an all genomic tested offering of great production and deep pedigree based cow families. This sale is for current and future Junior breeder participation only! In addition to gaining a great start to a young herd, all purchases in the Pot O’Gold are entered into a production contest against all the consignments for that year. Since its inception in 1958, the sale has offered youth (ages 7-20) the opportunity to purchase genetically superior heifers from top herds across the country. A percentage of the sale gross is set aside in a fund and held for three years to provide cash awards for the junior breeders whose heifers complete the highest records for dollar value. The 2012 Pot O’Gold Production Winner was Michael Kortus, WA with Kilgus Finalist Gem-ET. His cash prize was $2,408.22.

The All American Sale offers an outstanding selection of Jersey greatness, from breed-leading genetics to show-quality pedigrees, from top herds from around the country. AI organizations watch this sale with great anticipation, as do a great many breeders and other Jersey enthusiasts. This is the Jersey breed’s most elite showcase of Jersey Genetics and will be held on November 10!

Both sales are currently accepting consignments. To nominate an animal for either sale, please contact Jersey Marketing Service at 614-322-4473, Sale Chairman, Pat Gourley (503-334-7406), Associate Sale Chairman, Eddie Kirchdoerfer (573-334-3769), or your AJCA/NAJ Area Representative .

Genomic evaluations for heifers in the Pot O’Gold Sale MUST be in the lab by September 6 for the absolute latest consideration of your consignment to the catalog. The AJCA Board has appropriated funds to 3K genotype up to three prospects from every owner consigning an animal to the Pot O’Gold Sale, provide one of the considered heifers is cataloged. Both sale catalog deadlines are September 6.
