2013 Jersey Canada Annual Meeting
March 21, 2013

The Jersey Canada Annual Meeting was hosted by the Quinte Trent Jersey Club, March 15 & 16th 2013 in Trenton, ON. The program began with herd tours – Hometown Jerseys, Beslea Holsteins & Jerseys, Garhaven Holsteins & Jerseys, Lorivale Jerseys & Roslin Ridge Jerseys. The day was packed full of great hospitality and fellowship.  Following the herd tours a pre sale barbecue was held at the Doug Jarrell Sales Arena, same location as the Presidents Select Sale that was managed by RJ Farms (President Bob Jarrell and his family). The sale averaged $4500 on 35 live lots and drew quite a crowd with standing room only. Click here to see photos and prices from the Presidents Select Sale.
