The 2016 Canadian Jersey cow of the year has a pretty name and a pretty appearance and pedigree.
It is Avonlea Mischief’s Magnolia ET owned by Unique Stock Farm of Rochester, Alta., and Robert Jarrell of Corbyville, Ont.
The winner was announced Jan. 13 by Jersey Canada.
The cow was chosen from among three nominees via an online vote. The other contenders were Green Hectares Extreme Vallie and Maughlin Jamaica Durango.
Jersey Canada said in a news release that the winning cow was “the first and only Jersey to win supreme junior champion at the Western Canadian Livestock Expo.”
Owners will receive the cow of the year award at the Jersey Canada annual general meeting April 6-8 in Saint John, N.B.
