About Your Jersey Expansion Certificates
Your registration order included applications for animals in Jersey Expansion. These applications have been processed, but the
certificates are not included in this mailing.
At its March, 2015 meeting, the AJCA Board of Directors acted to restructure the program to provide accurate identification for
breed of origin across multiple generations and define a clear pathway for animals to be recorded in the AJCA Herd Register. Under
the revised rules, six continuous generations sired by Registered Jersey™ bulls starting with the first-generation female (J1) will result
in an animal eligible for the AJCA Herd Register (see table). These rules are retroactive to program implementation on January 1, 1999.
Animals recorded in Jersey Expansion will be

March 2015 Action on “Gratitude” and Descendants


Your registration order includes animals that have OA Oomsdale Gordo Goldie Gratitude{1} 111224922 as an ancestor.
At its meeting March 14, 2015, the AJCA Board of Directors revisited its prior decisions regarding the registration of “Gratitude”
and all descendants. A summary of those actions, that were published in the April 2010 Jersey Journal, follows.
On February 15, 2010, the AJCA notified active members, customers and allied industry that non-Jersey DNA had been
identified by the Animal Improvement Programs Laboratory in the genomes of 15 maternal descendants of “Gratitude.” The
AJCA undertook a systematic discovery process to determine, to the fullest possible extent, the correct parentage of this cow.
The cow had not been genotyped, so genetic material from her was located and submitted for genotyping. AIPL research
geneticists estimated a high percentage of Jersey inheritance, but less than 100%, and were unable to determine the sire of
the cow. Based on the known facts, the Board directed that the pedigree of Oomsdale Gordo Goldie Gratitude 111224922
be corrected to change the sire to UR Unidentified Unknown Breed Sire, resulting in a change in her registry status to J1. It
further directed that her registry status be raised from J1 to OA, based upon her own DNA genotyping test. As a consequence
of this action, the registry status of “Gratitude’s” progeny was corrected consistent with rules made by the Board for the
Genetic Recovery program.
The matter was reconsidered in light of requests from AJCA members for additional information about extended members of this
family. By order of the Board of Directors, a numeric code in brackets is now part of the registration name for this cow and all
descendants, with “Gratitude” labeled {1}, her progeny {2}, and continuing through six generations. To illustrate, an animal
with a {3} appended to the name is a third-generation descendant, a {4} indicates fourth-generation descendant, and so forth. In the
case of offspring of two “Gratitude” descendants, that animal will have a numeric code of the lowest-level descendant plus 1. So, a
{4} mated to a {5} will carry the numeric code {5}, and a {3} mated to a {6} will result in a {4}.

Why Jerseys

The smaller, more efficient Jersey cow is the solution to the challenges
of profitability and sustainability confronting dairy business owners.

A Profitable Product
“With the Jersey, we have an animal that is smaller, uses fewer natural resources and
produces a smaller carbon footprint. We have a cow with a longer productive life that
produces a more nutrient-rich milk that consumers are demanding and are willing to pay for.”

But the primary reason the Jersey is the breed to build a dairy business on is
delivered to the mailbox every month. Because it contains more of milk’s most valuable
components—protein and fat—you get paid more money for Jersey milk.

A Profitable Producer
“The sole office of the Jersey cow, broadly speaking, is to produce the largest possible
amount of rich and highly-colored cream from a given amount of food.”
Jersey Herd Register, Volume 1, 1871
The Jersey breed was developed so that dairy producers would have “less cow to
feed, more cow to milk.” U.S. Jerseys produce, on average, more than 17 times their Jerseys return greater profits. Compared to
other breeds, it costs less for Jersey farmers

“The amount you get out financially is much different and is much more beneficial
with Jersey cows,” he continues. “You can say we have our downfalls. We don’t get as
much for bull calves, but we don’t have calving problems. We don’t have reproductive
problems. There are way more advantages than disadvantages with Jerseys.
“Although we like Jerseys,” Bansen says, “if they weren’t the most productive breed,
I’m sorry, but we probably wouldn’t be with them.”

Advantages That Go To The Bottom Line


“Our Jersey cow can withstand the rigors of commercial dairy production. She calves early
and on her own. She produces at a high level and breeds back to do it all over again.”
David Chamberlain, past-President, American Jersey Cattle Association

Body weight at puberty averaged 425 lbs. (193 kg.) for the Jersey heifers, compared
to 665 lbs. (301 kg.) for the Holsteins. There’s also no question as to when Jerseys are
ready to breed. The Jersey heifers had longer estrus periods than Holstein heifers (12.7
hours versus 10.7 h.) and more standing heat events (27.5 versus 17). Not surprisingly,
researchers at the USDA-ARS Animal Improvement Programs Laboratory (AIPL) report
that historically and currently, Jerseys have the lowest average age at first calving among
all breeds.
Jerseys are renown for their ease of calving. Fewer calving problems reduces worry,
labor and veterinary costs. Fewer than 1% of Jersey heifers experience problems with
their first calf, while nearly 8% of Holstein had difficult calvings requiring assistance Generation after generation, Jersey mothers

AIPL studies reveal that across the lifespan, Jerseys have the shortest average calving
interval (390 days, versus an average of 404 for Holsteins). And across their lifetimes,
Jerseys average 3.2 calvings, compared to 2.8 calvings for Holsteins.
It’s hard to overstate what the Jersey’s reproductive advantages can mean to the
bottom line. “Reproduction impacts the bottom line in significant areas, like having more
calves to sell or grow with and allowing for greater voluntary culling,” notes consultant
Jim Tully. But above all, he says, “Milk is a by-product of reproduction. Having more fresh
cows, more often, means more milk.”

potential is supported—they will also be healthier and produce more milk
in their lifetime.

JERSEYS ARE UNIQUE


The care and management of Jersey calves and heifers must take into
account a number of unique breed characteristics.
Small Birth Weight and Minimal Fat Reserves
Jersey calves average 60 pounds at birth, with a range in birth
weight from 42 to 72 pounds reported in a recent California calf
study. A mere 3% of the calf ’s initial weight is body fat and is
quickly expended by the calf to generate body heat.
Easy Births
Jersey calves are hardly ever subjected to dystocia and its
associated problems. The difficult birth rate for Jersey cows is less
than 1%, and that clearly makes things easier for Jersey calves at
the start of life.
Surface Area to Body Weight Relationship
Body heat dissipates more quickly in Jersey calves because of the
high ratio of body surface area to body mass. This can set Jersey calves up to
be more prone to chilling and also dehydration.
Higher Maintenance Requirement
Virginia Tech scientists studying the growth performance of Jersey calves on

all calves grew less than expected. This suggests that Jersey calves are not

EVERY JERSEY HEIFER


simply a “small frame breed” but have a higher maintenance energy
requirement per unit of metabolic weight than previously thought.
Earlier Maturity
Jersey heifers reach sexual maturity earlier in life, making it
possible to breed them at a younger age and getting them into the
milking herd sooner. Jerseys have the youngest age at first calving
of any breed. The potential payoff is significant: an earlier return on
the money invested in raising each heifer.
Mature Size
The average mature size for Jerseys is approximately 1,000 pounds
and the range in weight and height of mature Jersey cows is
narrower compared to ranges described for larger dairy breeds.

TARGETING HEIFER GROWTH


Everything that is done in a heifer-raising program should lead to the
ultimate goal: a well-grown, healthy herd replacement ready to calve at an
optimum age and size to maximize her productive life. There’s no doubt that
it takes a considerable investment of time and money to raise Jersey
replacement heifers. The challenge is, how to make those investments
cost-effective for your operation.
Your ultimate objective is to move heifers from pens or pastures into
production. That means that age at first
calving should be the single most “A quality heifer is one that carries no limitations

determine. Cornell PRO-DAIRY, “Dairy Calves and Heifers: Integrating
Biology and Management” (2005)
To get there, you need a plan—one with
clearly defined performance goals and consistently leading to the calving age
you want.
Principles of Targeted Growth
Targeted heifer growth is a straightforward system that you can use to
develop growth goals for your replacement heifers, given the age at which
you want them to enter the milking herd.
A key advantage of this method is that your program will be tailored to your
management and environmental conditions, as well as your preferences for
mature size of your cow herd.
Three targets are set for heifer size at:
• Puberty, which happens when heifers reach 45% to 50% of mature size;
• Breeding weight, at third estrus following puberty, 55% of mature
weight; and

TAKING AIM ON LIFETIME PROFITABILITY


Target growth is just part of the picture when it comes to running a
cost-effective calf and heifer program. In addition to a nutrition program
that will support growth goals, a plan must also specify goals for health
management, the reproductive program and calving management.
The Replacement Heifer Management Evaluation Snapshot (Cornell
PRO-DAIRY, 2008, opposite page) gets at the bigger picture of a
comprehensive program, using key benchmarks from all of these
areas.
Relative to calf and heifer management, there are five goals:
• Achieve passive immunity in the newborn calf.
• Double the calf ’s birth weight in 56 days.
• Achieve two additional growth targets, those being weight at
breeding (pregnancy) and after first calving.
• For herd health, have no more than 30% of heifers requiring
significant treatment, as for scours or respiratory problems.
• Limit death losses.
What Happens In The Calf Barn Stays With Them For A Lifetime
That’s the bottom line from scientific research tracking the performance of
calves from birth to the birth of their own calf, and then after they enter the
milking herd. While some of the immediate effects have been known for
some time, other longer-term effects—particularly for lifetime milk
production—are just now being recognized.

relationship with growth rate to puberty and as well as lactation yield. As Dr.
Mike Van Amburgh of Cornell University related at a March, 2008 seminar
for Jersey owners, studies show that calves with failure of passive transfer

production in first lactation. The
Cornell PRO-DAIRY, “Targeted Heifer Growth” (2008)
opposite happened in calves that did
achieve passive transfer, and there was a notable increase in milk yield for
the calves that had IgG levels higher than 12 mg/mL.
The practical effects of early-life colostrum status are apparent from one
study where colostrum intake at birth was the only difference in the way 68
heifers of comparable genetic merit were fed and managed. The
growth rate to puberty for heifers fed more colostrum was 30%
greater, and veterinary costs half of those for the low-intake heifers.
Difference in production for the first and second lactations
combined was over 2,250 pounds milk in favor of the high
colostrum intake group, and there was a 16% difference in survival
to the end of the second lactation.
Nutrient intake through liquid feed. “Calves clearly respond to
greater intake of milk or milk replacer with greater body weight
gains,” says Dr. James Drackley of the University of Illinois, adding
that higher nutrient intake is also related to calves’ greater ability
to withstand infectious diseases.
Compelling evidence is also emerging that a higher plane of
nutrition in liquid feed results in greater first-lactation milk yield.
At his seminar, Dr. Van Amburgh reported that when calves were fed at least
50% more nutrients than the traditional rate (two quarts, twice daily of 20%
protein, 20% fat milk replacer), as cows they produced from 1,000 to 3,000
additional pounds of milk. The average increase across seven studies was
1,700 pounds.

first hour. Even so, Ig levels can vary dramatically because of many factors,
such as the age of dam, the nutrition and/or vaccination program
for dry cows, and length of the dry period. This makes it important
to actually test the immunoglobulin content of colostrum before
deciding to feed it. A ColostrometerTM (Biogenics, Mapleton, Ore.) is
useful at cowside to help make that decision.
Because colostrum is one of the first ways a calf can be exposed to
disease-causing bacteria, special care must be taken to properly
prep the udder, milk into a clean, sanitized bucket, and use clean,
sanitized feeding equipment to deliver this essential first meal.

JERSEYS TO WEANING
Day 2 to weaning, at two months of age, is the critical window of
opportunity to promote a heifer’s growth that will result in her
reaching the desired age at first calving. The goal for this period is
to double the birth weight by 56 days. For the 60-pound Jersey calf, this
translates to supporting a consistent rate of daily gain at 1.1 pounds until
weaning (see table, next page).
Just as they do for colostrum, Jerseys “While nutrient requirements for calves

The thermoneutral zone is the range of environmental
temperature in which calves do not have to actively regulate their
body temperature. For calves less than 21 days old, the lower end
of that range is 60ºF. Under 60ºF, more energy is required by
calves just to keep warm, directing nutrients away from growth.
This is an important management consideration for the vast
majority of Jersey owners. Across an average year in Minnesota,
for example, there will be 262 days under 60ºF. Surprisingly, even
in California (Sacramento data), 181 days of the year will be
under 60ºF. Because Jersey calves are

calves, if and when it is properly handled, fed and stored. After
studying 13 herds in North Carolina and California, Dr. Bob James
of Virginia Tech determined that nutrient content can vary widely,
and so can cleanliness. Particular care must be taken to ensure that
an on-farm pasteurizer is properly operated and cleaned. Equally
important, fat and protein levels in pasteurized waste milk must be
monitored and, if necessary, nutritionally balanced.
Rumen Development
Calves should be encouraged to begin eating grain as soon as Milk and grain diet, 6 weeks
possible to support rumen development. Weaning cannot occur
until the rumen has developed. More specifically, Jersey calves
should be consuming 1.5 pounds of high-quality starter grain for
three consecutive days before they are weaned.
Rumen development is directly related to the consumption of dry
feeds high in fermentable carbohydrates. Production of volatile
fatty acids (VFAs) from fermented carbohydrates promotes
development and growth of rumen tissue and particularly the
papillae, the fingerlike projections which absorb nutrients.
Consumption of dry forages prior to weaning can delay rumen
development. The photographs at right show the differences in Milk and hay diet, 6 weeks

diets including hay (bottom).

“A ready conclusion,” writes Dr. McDowell of findings from his review of more than 1,000 studies published
over two decades (1970-1987), “is that Jersey is an excellent breed for dairying . . .” Research during the past
decade continues to document Jersey advantages, in addition to providing updated technical information
about the nutritional requirements and other issues in the management of Jerseys.
