Production Achievements to be Honored

Two Registered Jersey cows will be honored for outstanding production at the 151st Annual Meeting of the American Jersey Cattle Association in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on June 29.

For the fifth consecutive year, Mainstream Jace Shelly (pictured above) will received the Ogston Trophy for lifetime milk production, the High Lawn Trophy for lifetime fat production and the Edyvean Farm Trophy for lifetime protein production. She is owned by Randy Kortus and his late wife, Jana, of Lynden, Wash., and was bred by their daughter, Melissa.

“Shelly” surpassed two benchmarks this year—400,000 lbs. milk and 20,000 lbs. fat—with lifetime totals of 406,683 lbs. milk, 20,159 lbs. fat and 15,156 lbs. protein in 4,331 days as of December 31, 2018. “Shelly” is the all-time leader for all measures of production, a title she’s held since 2016.

Cinnamon Ridge Plus Partridge {6} will be recognized as winner of both the Hilmar Cheese Yield Trophy, for actual cheese yield, and the President’s Trophy, for m.e. protein. She is bred and owned by John and Edwin Maxwell, Donahue, Iowa.
