TAS Country : April 26th 2012
Friday, April 27, 2012 Tasmanian Country 45 Jerseys an annual hit KAROLIN MacGREGOR 'The calves are always very popular, especially with the children CUTE calves have proved to be the ideal drawcard for the Jer- sey Australia Agfest site and this year will be no exception. Over the years, thousands of children and adults have en- joyed patting the Jersey calves that are a feature of the Jersey Australia exhibit. Jersey Australia Tas- manian Branch sec- retary Max McCormack said the branch had been a regular exhibitor at Agfest for many years. ''I've been secretary for 11 years and we've been going there all that time,'' he said. ''It's a good way to promote the breed and let people know a bit more about Jerseys.'' Members of the Tasmanian Branch committee take turns manning the site and handing out information to patrons. Mr McCormack said there was always a breeder on hand to answer questions if needed. ''The calves are always very popular, especially with the children --- they just love them,'' he said. There are 32 registered Jersey breeders in Tasmania. Mr McCor- mack said in addition to the thousands of registered Jer- seys across the State, the breed had also proved popular for cross-breeding across many dairy herds. ''There always seems to be steady demand for them,'' Mr McCormack said. Site 735 on Seventh Ave 2012 and trade mark and registered trade mark of Telstra Corporation Limited, ABN 33 051 775 556.
