Annual Meetings and National Heifer Sale to be changed to virtual venue
Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, the boards and staff of the USJersey organizations felt at this point in time, it is in the best interest of all parties to cancel a face-to-face meeting and move to a virtual business meeting for the membership this summer.
“This unprecedented decision is imperative to protect the health and safety of our staff, board members, and breeders as well as the financial stability of the USJersey organizations,” said Neal Smith, Executive Secretary of the American Jersey Cattle Association and National All-Jersey Inc.
The board voted unanimously to accept the Oregon Jersey Cattle Association’s invitation to host the 2022 meetings.
National Heifer Sale Will Go On
The National Heifer Sale, an annual event held in conjunction with the AJCA-NAJ Annual Meetings, will continue. The venue will be changed to a virtual sale with all lots selling live through videos on JerseyAuctionLive.com in conjunction with the virtual meetings of the USJersey organizations.
