MEMBERSHIP


It’s true. Being a Jersey Canada member can save you money in animal registrations and transfers. A registered Jersey with proper identification and pedigree information also increases in value. But there is more to being a member. Your membership says that you have a passion for the Jersey breed and you care about the future of dairy farming. It offers you marketing options and the chance to get involved in programs, contests and awards. Membership also means that you are now part of our Jersey family, and whether it's farm tours, meetings, or you are a virtual fan on Facebook, our family likes getting together and talking about cows.
