This is a reminder that the nominations for the 2024 Individual Awards are due by Friday January 12th, 2024. These prestigious awards allow Jersey Canada members to recognize individuals that are making an impact with the Jersey breed in Canada.

The awards and qualifications required for nominees are:

Youth of Distinction
To be eligible for the Jersey Canada Youth of Distinction award you must be 18 to 25 years of age and be involved with the Jersey breed in Canada. This award is presented at the Jersey Canada Annual Meeting. We encourage nominations for eligible aged candidates with strong leadership and involvement in agriculture, the community, and the Jersey breed.

This year, for the first time, the Jersey Canada Youth Committee is offering to assist with expenses – up to $1000 – for the Youth of Distinction recipient to attend the 2024 Jersey Canada AGM in Orford, QC on March 22-23, 2024.

Jersey Young Achievers
The Jersey Young Achievers award recognizes the accomplishments of Jersey breeders under the age of 40. Must be accompanied by a resume of accomplishments with Jerseys, the community and family.

The Honourary Life Member Award
The Honourary Life Member Award recognizes long-term leadership contribution to the Jersey breed. Nominations must be accompanied by a resume outlining the nominee’s Jersey involvement through the years.

Distinguished Service Award
Periodically the association will present a Distinguished Service Award. This award recognizes a unique long-term commitment to the betterment of the Jersey cow in the areas of leadership, promotion, genetic improvement, marketing – open to any member of the Jersey fraternity – few such awards have been given in the history of the association. This is the highest honour given by Jersey Canada and is therefore given when deemed appropriate.

Certificate of Appreciation
A Certificate of Appreciation is awarded periodically to people within the agricultural industry who render a particular service above and beyond the call of duty to the goals and the objectives of the association. Recipients have often been employees of industry partner companies.
