JerseyGenome™ is a  Joint Venture between Jersey NZ & CRV AmBreed. The programme was introduced to the membership in February 2010 which effectively saw JerseyJET and Jersey Genes combined into one package to offer significant opportunities for breeders.

What is JerseyGenome™

  • A joint venture to identify potential bull mothers for Jersey New Zealand & CRV AmBreed
  • To generate sires that will enhance the future of the Jersey Breed
  • Marrying of technologies (Breeding and Science).

How does JerseyGenome™ work?

Jersey New Zealand identify young females within registered Jersey population

  • Breeders are invited to nominate Elite females for consideration
  • Candidate group selected for Genomic testing
  • JerseyGenome™ participants selected
  • No host farm – females remain on the owners farm
  • Minimum of four herd tests
  • Participants will TOP and classify two year olds
  • Weighed at least once during the season
  • Mating recommendations from CRV AmBreed
  • Resulting bulls advance to CRV Ambreed
  • If selected royalties will apply to those bulls graduating from the scheme
  • Young bulls will be considered for CRV AmBreed Insire Teams
  • Graduates income shared (Jersey NZ, Bull Breeder, CRV AmBreed and JerseyGenome™ participants)

2019 JerseyGenome™ team

The 2019 JerseyGenome team has just been confirmed this week.

The 2019 team totals 79 heifers, from 27 different members, representing progeny from 26 sires.  Owners of all genomically tested heifers are receiving a copy of their genomic report as part of this exciting programme, and will shortly receive mating agreements for the successful heifers.

Look out for more information in the upcoming Jersey FOCUS

This award is to acknowledge the heifer who performs well above her expectations, this may not be the highest indexing heifer and gives the heifers with low ancestral (parent averages) starting points an opportunity for an award. Often these heifers are less related to the more common bloodline.
