Lone Pine Jerseys Ltd., joins Cowsmo’s Breeder Tour! Located in Didsbury, 45 minutes north of Calgary, AB, the farm is owned by Adrian and Vreni Haeni, and Vreni’s parents Kurt and Marie-Louise. They immigrated from Switzerland and have been milking cows at Lone Pine for 25 years.

They milk 90 purebred Jerseys, and have around 290 head including young stock and dry cows. The intensive use of sexed semen has also allowed them to sell quite a few cows over the last 5 years.

Breeding decisions are accessed on an individual basis with the goals of production and longevity in mind. They are also using as many A2 sires as they can. Current sires include: Chrome, Dragon, Grandious, Colton, Joyride, Viral, Victorious, Ladd, Casino, Change Up, Touchdown, Nuance.
