Fall Sales are approaching


Cataloging for the Southeast Jersey Invitational (formerly Dixie Invitational) will begin on THURSDAY, August 10. Consignments, especially any for the tie-up portion, must be turned in promptly.
In this year’s sale, we will be having a tie-up portion featuring approximately 30 head of high quality show prospects and genomic animals. The other portion of the sale will be commercial cattle that will be housed as we have done in the past. Milk cows will be in one group and the heifers divided and housed by age and pregnancy status. Thank you to Her-Man Jerseys and Sunny Day Farm for hosting the sale.

As manager of the sale, JMS wishes to invite you to participate in this volume production sale. The deadline for consignments to the Mid-Atlantic Fall Jersey Classic sale is August 16. The New York and New England area sales were held in the spring only for the 2017 sale season. This early fall sale will create a place to market quality Jersey heifers from and within the eastern United States. Thank you to the Craig Rhein Family for hosting this sale.

 

TOP OF THE WORLD SALE
Jersey Marketing Service (JMS) will once again manage an elite sale of the breed’s most marketable individuals at the Top of the World Jersey Sale in conjunction with World Dairy Expo. The sale date and time for this year is Wednesday, October 4 at 4:30 p.m. (CDT).
DAIRYLAND PROTEIN SALE

The deadline for the Top of the World and Dairyland Protein Sale catalogs is August 22.

Please consider consigning to this well attended fall sale with quality, production Jerseys that you want to market. Cheese plants in Ohio are strongly encouraging their suppliers to increase components, thus creating greater demand for Jersey cattle. The deadline for the Ohio Fall Sale catalog is September 9.

Jersey Marketing Service would like to invite you to be a part of the most prestigious Jersey sale in the world!
POT O’ GOLD GUIDELINES
Heifers must be born between July 1, 2016 and March 15, 2017. All heifers in the Pot O’Gold (POG) sale will be genotyped, and their dams must be scored at least VG-80%. AJCA will pay for three genomic samples to be nominated for the POG Sale. Samples need to be received at the lab before August 1st to meet the September genomic evaluation deadline and to be in the catalog.
ALL AMERICAN SELECTION GUIDELINES
We are looking for the best our breed has to offer. We want to select cattle from tremendous cow families that have consistently excelled in production and type. By striving for the very best from your breeding program we can continue to attract new and old Jersey enthusiasts from all over the world.
