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.
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.
