National Jersey Cattle Show
Press Release (16th April 2018)
The Jersey Cattle Society of the United Kingdom are
delighted to announce confirmation of the show case of their
breed continuing at The Dairy Show.
Our National Show will once again take place on Wednesday
3rd October 2018 at The Dairy Show, kindly
hosted by the Royal Bath & West of England Society.
Alan Lyons, Head of Shows said;
“We are delighted to
once again welcome the National Jersey Show to the Dairy Show,
it was an honour and pleasure in 2017. Jersey classes have
always been strong at Dairy Show, and we look forward to welcoming
Jersey Exhibitors old and new to the Showground in October.”.
Classes will be held for calves and showmanship on the evening
of Tuesday 2nd with a full range of Jersey classes
the following morning. We are excited to announce an additional “Lifetime
Class” to showcase the longevity of our Jersey Cow. This
is open to Senior Cows in higher lactation numbers who are
wonderful examples of our breed.
We are thrilled to welcome internationally renowned dairy
judge Alta Mae Core of Keightley & Core Jerseys to preside
over this prestigious event. Alta Mae and her husband Jeff,
along with their three children Brady, Brittany and Brooke
hail from Kentucky.
Winners of numerous Premier Breeder & Premier Exhibitor
Awards and being honoured by the
“Field of Dreams” sale, this herd breeds to sell
with possibly an unparalleled record selling a World Dairy
Expo Champion, Royal Winter Fair Champion, All American Grand
Champion and Jersey Jug Winners.
With a strong belief in the importance of cow families, bulls
have been used to produce generations of success. In fact the
Keightley and Core names have been synonymous with true quality
since the early 1950’s.
To name a few of the stars:
KCJF Regency Treasure EX97
A five time All American and winner of numerous production
awards. Treasure defines the breeding philosophy at KCJF being
homebred on both sides, producing a strong cow family which
balances type and production.
KCJF Tracers Ritzy
By a KCJF Regency Treasure EX97 son, she won the 2012 National
Jersey Futurity Jug following on from her 2011 success as All
American Two Year Old.
Ritzy’s dam, KCJF Centurion Ritz was All American Senior
Two Year Old 2009 and a stalwart member of the show team.
KCJF Sambo Molly
Molly made a tremendous impact of the herd with both her male
and female progeny. Three two year olds scored 89 points and
were all directly from this family and her son KCJF Mollys
Ren Motion sired one All American and two Reserve All Americans.
Another son KCJF One In A Million had semen collected and is
Molly herself won the 2008 National Jersey Futurity Jug.
With a real focus on the dedication and sacrifices involved
to flourish in farming and show business, the whole family
have truly succeeded.
We are honoured that Alta Mae has accepted our invitation
to judge and are very excited to present to her the quality
of Jersey cattle in the UK.
