WJCB 2020 TOUR & ANNUAL MEETING

June 20 – July 21, 2020

Jersey Canada, along with the experienced travel professionals of Agri-Tours Canada, will be hosting the World Jersey Cattle Bureau (WJCB) Study Tour and Annual Meeting in 2020. Planning is underway with a stellar line-up of farm visits and activities. It is an excellent opportunity to experience the development of the breed in a range of locations. Canada is a beautiful and diverse country and a Jersey tour is also a fabulous way to explore what we have to offer beyond cows. Meet like-minded people that share your passion, network and learn!

We welcome you to join our tour by choosing various options that suit your schedule and travel logistics. Canada is a big country and our itinerary has also been developed to accommodate local visitors that can only escape the farm within their home province.

The tour promises to showcase both traditional and state-of-the-art Jersey farms. A platform for networking will be held not only in the barn, but we will provide a taste of must-see attractions that are essential when visiting our glorious nation.

Below is a preliminary outline of our plans:

June 20-26 - Pre-Tour:  Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Ottawa and Toronto (will include tourist attractions)
June 27-July 3 - Main Tour:  visits to Oxford, Perth and Brant Counties (tourist attractions include Niagara Falls, Toronto and St. Jacobs)
