Members of the California Jersey Cattle Association gather for their annual meeting every year in February. The event is opportunity for breeders to catch up with friends and honor accomplishments. This year, the meeting was held on February 6 at the Hilmar Cheese Company in Hilmar.
Several special awards are given at a banquet held in conjunction with the annual meeting. The California Senior Breeder and California Junior Breeder awards recognize accomplishments in developing outstanding herds of Registered Jersey cattle. The Distinguished Service and Sweetheart awards honor service to the dairy industry and the state Jersey organization.
