Merry Christmas From Jersey Australia

From the President


As 2021 draws to a close, silage and hay season nears completion, cows are back in-calf and we approach the festive season I am especially proud of the extraordinary year Jersey Australia has had. With inspiring work, commitment, professionalism and solidarity much has been achieved.

Each and every one of our members, board members, employees and industry organisations have helped to achieve progress in many areas of the association.

We have all shown great resilience and patience in managing life in the midst of COVID-19, your spirit and support to Jersey Australia has been appreciated. Your focus to grow the Jersey breed often in the toughest of circumstances has been amazing which will enable Jersey Australia to emerge from the events of the past few years stronger and more determined to show the world how truly wonderful this breed is.

Building and expanding our conversations and voice within the industry is seeing positive outcomes. Jersey Australia continues to develop programs and projects to highlight the benefits of milking the Jersey cow, some of which will be ready for release in the New Year.

Planning and strategy sessions to be held during the February board meeting will establish the grass roots for new ideas to be nurtured into the next projects.

International Diary week is set to take place in January allowing us to gather and enjoy some well overdue Jersey fellowship.

On behalf of the Jersey Australia Board and management team we thank you for your ongoing support of the organisation and hope you can spend precious time with loved ones over the festive period.

Please keep doing what you enjoy and most importantly stay safe and well.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Best wishes,

Lisa Broad.
