The Jessica Legacy
Elmar Leader Jessica EX 3E began the Jessica Legacy, when she won Grand Champion Holstein at International Dairy Week in 2003.
She was then selected as Reserve All-World Cow. So began the success of the Jessica Cow family for Elmar.
The Jessica family started about 30 years when Steven bought a calf. The Jessica family Champions through to 2018 are the granddaughters and great granddaughters of decorated cow Leader Jessica.
The first cow with the Jessica name was Elmarste Astro Jessica VG85 who had a Conant-Acre-JY Broker daughter, Elmarste Broker Jessica VG85; who was the dam of the Leader Jessica.
Elmar Boss Jessica VG88 is the most successful daughter of the Leader cow and the ultimate brood cow in the family. Whilst she was never shown, she has 30 registered progeny and all her classified daughters are VG or EX, making her a 21 star brood cow !
