Jersey Future Team

A joint venture programme 2019

Genetic gain is a fundamental driver for the success and sustainability of Jerseys in New Zealand.

Both Jersey NZ and LIC share significant values for our golden cow and together with this joint venture – Jersey Future, we will deliver unmatched success. This program is yours – every member of Jersey NZ will benefit from the outcomes and we are excited about the opportunity this new scheme has to offer our breed. You, our members, already invest significantly in all drivers for genetic gain.  We see this in the 95% of all Jersey bulls marketed in the 2015-16 year bred by Jersey NZ members’ herds.

Breeders herds rank at the top of most performance and genetic measures. LIC realise the gain brought about by Jersey NZ member’s passion and investment and want to be part of it.  Jersey NZ are delighted to be working alongside an organisation with the expertise and reputation of LIC.  The David and Goliath competition on the RAS list show Jerseys taking out more positions than any other breed, is testament to the breed and LIC’s significant investment within their Jersey programme.
