21st International Conference of the World Jersey Cattle Bureau

The United States of America—home of the largest and fastest-growing population of Jersey cattle in the world—hosts the 21st International Conference of the World Jersey Cattle Bureau in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of the American Jersey Cattle Association.

This program offers unmatched opportunities for everyone producing and marketing Jersey milk, milk products, and Jersey genetics, and especially those considering entering or expanding in the Jersey business.

Speakers for the International Conference confirmed at December 1 include Larry Schirm, who brings a lifetime of Jersey experience to his role as ABS Global Key Account Manager; Dr. Dennis Saviano, Virginia C. Meredith Professor of Nutrition Policy at Purdue University; Dr. Francis Fluharty, Research Professor, The Ohio State University; and Andrew Le Gallais, Chairman of the Jersey Milk Marketing Board.

The three-week itinerary includes visits to the American Jersey Cattle Association headquarters offices, 30 top-performing herds in five states and North America’s largest A.I.bull center; expert presentations in a series of educational programs that include a research field day at the U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center farm; and city tours in San Francisco or Portland, Columbus, and Chicago.

The 21st International Conference is where you will share ideas, learn about the advances in genomics, management and marketing and network with Jersey owners expected from 20 countries.
