New Class at the Royal - 2017
The “Lifetime Component Class” is a class specifically for those Jerseys with an official lifetime total solids record (combined fat and protein yield) of 4,500 kg or more, based on official DHI records. Animals exhibited in this new class cannot be exhibited in any other class at the National Jersey Show (e.g. a cow may be shown in either the Lifetime Component Class or the Mature Cow Class, but not both).
The Jersey Canada Board of Directors would like to encourage other county, provincial, and championship Jersey shows to consider including a Lifetime Component Class as well.
New Rule - 2016
Changing the natural colour of an animal is prohibited. However, external applications of cosmetics that affect only appearance may be used, including by way of example colour touch up of a maximum of 4” on either side of the topline, hoof polishes and false switches.
Feed & Bedding Reminder
The RAWF is a premier event that showcases the best dairy cattle to local, national and international visitors. To that end, it is important that dairy exhibitors showcase their cattle in the best way possible - with top tier animals and a clean barn.
We would like to remind exhibitors that you may bring in a maximum of 24 hours of feed and bedding and that all feed, hay and straw MUST be contained within the feed aisles between stalls.
While the stalling configuration can accommodate small square bales of hay and straw, large round bales are a challenge to store and keep tidy. To help you plan how to store and maintain your round bale, please keep in mind that access to the feed aisles is only 40”.
