The Power of Pedigree - Fine Food Digest August 2016

Jersey Island already use the power of pedigree to great effect in dairy product marketing. Similarly Longley Farm, in the UK, requires pedigree registration of all Jerseys supplying their product. And ‘The Queen of Quality’ mark from AJCA is encouraging and supporting manufacturers of Jersey products across the USA. The opportunity to use Jersey pedigree status wider, and ever more imaginatively, can help the breed’s image further.


World Jersey Cheese Awards


The World Jersey Cheese Awards were established in 2008 by the World Jersey Cattle Bureau.


The World Jersey Cheese Awards were the first awards scheme where the products are all derived from a single breed of livestock – the Jersey Cow.

Cheese makers from around the world are invited to enter their cheese, which must be made from 100% Jersey milk, and compete with their contemporaries for this prestigious award of the World’s Best Jersey Cheese.


This event provides an ideal opportunity to be part of the phenomenal expansion that is ‘The Jersey’, the premier breed of dairy cow.
