US Jersey Generation Count Implementation Underway
May 5, 2016

Thursday, May 5: Work is in progress to replace prefixes in the names of animals recorded in the Genetic Recovery and Jersey Expansion programs with a Generation Count suffix. Generation Count indicates depth of recorded Jersey ancestry from {1} through {6}. Animals that have Herd Register status (seven or more generations of AJCA-recorded ancestry) do not have a Generation Count suffix.

Registration on infoJersey is now closed so that the AJCA animal database can be updated. You will be able to order JerseyTags and genomic test kits until that update is completed. Then, the entire infoJersey site will go offline to complete programming changes.

Generation Count implementation will continue through Tuesday, May 10. No registration or transfer work will be mailed until implementation is completed and infoJersey is back online.
