The Pennsylvania Jersey Cattle Association is one of the most active state Jersey associations in the country.

Each spring, the club holds an annual meeting and awards banquet to honor Jersey producers for accomplishments. The association continues to feature the Pennsylvania Pot of Gold Sale for youth when a spring sale is possible and is typically held every three years in western Pennsylvania.

The PJCA sponsors and publishes the Jerseys East Newsletter three times each year to cover Jersey events and give Jersey producers opportunity to promote their herds. For more information about the Jerseys East newsletter, call editor and printer, Beverly Gruber at 610/767-5026 or email her at lowhill@rcn.com.

The club sponsors Jersey Champions at the Pennsylvania Junior Dairy Show in Harrisburg in September, Jersey class awards at the Pennsylvania All-American Jersey Show in Harrisburg in September and gives first place awards at The All American Jersey Show in Louisville, KY, in November. The association also funds travel for juniors attending The All American Junior Jersey Show. More information about the Youth Louisville trip can be found on the Junior page.

Membership is available for $30 a year. Benefits include a free subscription to the Jerseys East Newsletter and discounted subscription rates to Farmshine ($8 per year) and Lancaster Farming ($8 per year).
