ABOUT THE CONTEST
Established in 1955, the All Canadian Contest is a Jersey Canada award program that recognizes top Jerseys on the Canadian show circuit. Traditionally these cows enjoy the attention and prestige of being named an All Canadian. Along with their photo and qualifying show results, winning and nominated cows are showcased in the February issue of the Jersey Breeder magazine as well as listed on the Jersey Canada website and announced through email and social media channels. For each class, All Canadian winners receive an award at the Jersey Canada Annual General Meeting. The All Canadian Contest has been sponsored by Agri-Brands Purina
