Jersey Regional Sire Proving Groups
The American Jersey Cattle Association administers five (5) regional sire proving groups.
These breeder cooperatives sample and prove additional young Jersey sires in order to provide superior genetic material for the continued improvement of the Jersey breed. Membership in the group of choice is included in REAP herd enrollment. Herds not enrolled on REAP are also eligible to join a group to participate in sampling its bulls.
