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
WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018?
To serve you better, Jersey Canada continues to find a contest application platform that is both efficient and user friendly. We have a new entry application process for 2018 that we will be beta testing.
With the exception of 4-H classes, the rules themselves have not changed, but the application process has. To clarify, eligibility between OPEN and 4-H classes is different and has been separated. This supports 4-H privacy policies and youth inclusivity. If you are entering an animal in one of our 4-H classes, please go to the All Canadian 4-H Rules, as eligibility and information to be submitted is different from the OPEN classes.
As in the past, the 2018 All Canadian Contest entry process continues to be offered online.
For OPEN classes, you will notice that we require very little information from you to complete an entry and that this process demands very little time or computer experience from applicants and is extremely user friendly. Provided that your entry is accurate (registration # and animal name) the remaining information that we typically require (animal birthdate, owners, show results) will be extracted from our pedigree database (Canadian herdbook).
If you are unable to complete the application electronically, please give us a call at 519-821-1020 (ext. 101). Be sure to review the OPEN class and/or 4-H class rules below to see if your animal qualifies.
Note: If you are entering US animals that are not in our pedigree database, you must provide your Canadian show results. In addition to filling out an application form (below), this information must be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
