Reynoldsburg, Ohio —The permanent fund for Jersey Youth Academy added $6,720 from the third annual Cow Pie Bingo, held June 23 at All-Lynn Jerseys, Reedsburg, Wis., during the annual meetings of the American Jersey Cattle Association and National All-Jersey Inc.

The prize for this year’s fundraiser was All Lynns Vaughn Sutton, a February calf donated by Tommy Allen, who will be attending the second Jersey Youth Academy from July 17 through 22 in Columbus, Ohio.

The heifer sired by All Lynns Vaughn-ET, the third-high genomically tested and marketed young sire for Jersey Performance Index™ at 244, is a maternal descendant of Reich-Dale Brigadier Sandra Dee, Excellent-94% and Grand Champion of The All American Junior Jersey Show in 1997.

More than 80 individuals and farms made donations of $10, $25 or $50 to select one or more of the 192 squares available. “Sutton” chose her new owner by making her “deposit” on a square taken by Richard Clauss, Hilmar, Calif. Clauss then donated the calf to the 54th National Heifer Sale on June 25, where she sold for $1,500 to Benjamin Colopy, Castile, N.Y. All proceeds went to Jersey Youth Academy.

Over the past three years, Cow Pie Bingo has raised a total of $20,570 for the Jersey Youth Academy fund.

Jersey Youth Academy is a 501(c)(3) educational foundation managed by the American Jersey Cattle Association to attract, educate and retain talented young people for careers in the Jersey dairy business. Contributors represent a broad spectrum of Jersey breeder and dairy industry support.
