World Jersey Cattle Bureau select an Australian...

A selection committee at the WJCB have considered the two Jersey Australia nominated 2014 JETA Youth Travel Award candidates for the Oceania Region who were Melissa Halse, Sth Australia and Jane Sykes from Tasmania.

Jersey Australia President said "both Melissa and Jane would be excellent Australian representatives at the South Africa Conference in September this year. However, the WJCB could only select one candidate from the region and they finally agreed on Jane. - I'm sure Jane Sykes was as delighted with her selection for the award as we all were here at Jersey House".

Congratulations from all Jersey Australia members to Jane and we look forward to seeing her in action in South Africa. Perhaps we might encourage her to jot something of her trip for the Jersey Journal.
