Established in 2019, the African Jersey Forum (AJF) is a platform for stakeholders in Africa with an interest in the Jersey breed to share knowledge, learn, and to network with others.
Inspired by existing regional platforms including the European Jersey Forum and Latin America Jersey Forum, the AJF is intended to serve a dual purpose. Firstly, to provide educational and promotional resources for various audiences (including farmers, researchers and policy-makers) related to the Jersey breed, and dairy development more broadly, throughout Africa and the tropics in general. Secondly, to bring together national Jersey breed associations as they begin to emerge in the region.
This AJF website is a platform for sharing a variety of content including scientific articles and reports, news and insights. Our intention is that, over time, the forum will develop an extensive library of resources and a network of users throughout the region, promoting the Jersey breed and its benefits and providing useful information to farmers and others involved in nascent dairy industries across Africa.
The launch of the AJF and development of the AJF website is an initiative led by the Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society (RJA&HS) and generously funded by Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA)
