Loyalyn Goldwyn June (Ex-97-5E 1*) has just been named Holstein Canada’s Cow of the year. Congratulations to Ferme Pierre Boulet inc. as well her breeders Rob and Alice Bumstead.
June was named Grand Champion at the Quebec Spring Show 2019 as well winning her class at the 2018 Royal Winter Fair. At over 14 year old June has already produced 108.950kg of milk.
Since 1995, Holstein Canada’s annual Cow of the Year competition aims to recognize elite Canadian cows that have had an impact both domestically and internationally and have been enjoyed by Canadian producers. These animals could be a bull dam; a brood cow; a high or consistent milk producer; a show winner; a high-index animal; or a top cow in another country.
Holstein Canada members are welcomed to submit nominations in the fall for animals they feel deserving to be nominated for the Cow of the Year title. From submitted, eligible nominations, the Holstein Canada Cow of the Year selection committee names four Canadian-bred finalists. Nominees are narrowed to four based on animals that showcase longevity, production, genetic merit, strength of pedigree; and are a great Ambassador of Canadian genetics. And of course, nominees must be Canadian bred!
