Welcome to the World Jersey Cattle Bureau


Jersey Educational Travel Award

The WJCB Jersey Educational Travel Award is a scholarship award that is open to young Jersey cattle breeders who have:-

  • Demonstrated unique leadership qualities through their interest in the Jersey breed, or
  • Achieved success in their efforts to breed and develop profitable dairy businesses, and
  • Whose future endeavours will benefit from the knowledge and new ideas that can be gained by contact with other Jersey breeders from around the world.

The programme provides financial awards to enable up to five individuals to attend and participate in the next International Conference of the World Jersey Cattle Bureau, held every three years in a major dairy producing country, which will next be held in South Africa.

Awards will cover the cost of travel documents, return air fares and ground transportation, registration and all other conference fees for the week of the conference.  The recipients will also be awarded lifetime membership of the World Jersey Cattle Bureau.

JETA awards have now been held during the last three international conferences; Canada 2005, Jersey 2008, New Zealand 2011 and South Africa 2014 (the papers are available to download from the Conference Papers 2014 page). 

Twenty young Jersey breeders have been given the opportunity to develop their careers with this programme and many have gone on to become leaders of the industry in their respective countries and well as being members of a select group of individuals.
