The World Jersey Cattle Bureau invites all Jersey cattle breeders and their friends from around the world, to East Africa and in particular Rwanda and Kenya in June 2019. Over the last few years Jersey cattle have been improving the lives of many African families and we want to showcase how this has been done and more importantly how the Jersey cow can influence the future. No visit to East Africa would be complete without the option to view the wonderful array of wildlife, so on this trip you have the option to visit one of the world’s most game‐rich areas, the ‘Mara Triangle’ in the Masai Mara National Reserve, famously featured in “Big Cat Diary” on TV. Also, uniquely on a WJCB tour, an option to see Gorillas in the wild at only one of two places in the world where this is possible.
This tour will be different from the normal trip in that in many ways participants will be real life ambassadors for the breed. We will not be seeing large herds of well‐bred cattle, but seeing how Jerseys and crossbred Jerseys are contributing to a better life for families in East Africa. The Regional Dairy Workshop is both a celebration of the work already done and helping to map out future exciting developments. This is your opportunity to be a part of that process.
