Lone Pine Jerseys began when Adrian and Vreni, along with Vreni’s parents Kurt & Marie-Louisse, immigrated from Switzerland. They farm with their four boys Michael, Samuel, Jonas & Nils, in the town of Didsbury, which is 45 minutes north of Calgary, Alberta. The Haeni family milks about 90 purebred Jerseys and farm 850 acres of wheat, barley and alfalfa hay. The breeding goals at the farm include improved efficiency, production and longevity and they use as many A2 sires as possible. Active at several shows throughout the year, the Haeni family has had a lot of success in the show ring and earn many All-Western nominations each year. Their herd is almost entirely homebred and is anchored by cows like Lone Pine Giller Donna EX-94 6E 3* who was nominated Jersey Canada Cow of the Year in 2016.
Lone Pine had a fantastic classification round featuring 7 new EX and 14 new VG 2yr Olds. Other highlights were Megapower Tsunami & Redford Jay both received 89max, as well as Groundious Like Me scored 88points. Their herd now consists of 60 in-herd Excellents!
