About the National Jersey Youth Program
The American Jersey Cattle Association has made strategic investments in Jersey youth since 1958 when it created the National Heifer Sale to provide annual funding for educational programs and awards. The first of nine youth scholarship funds managed by the AJCA was established in 1965. The Maurice E. Core Jersey Youth Fund provides financial support for junior activities at The All American Show & Sale, the Jersey breed’s showcase event for 58 years. Jersey Youth Academy was created in 2008 to expand educational programs for older Jersey youth. It will be held for the second time July 17 to 22, 2011 in Columbus, Ohio.
