John Werry owns and operates Loa-De-Mede Farms in Oshawa, Ontario. A true family farming venture, it is in partnership with his parents Dennis and Cindy, as well as his wife Heather and two children Paige and Tate. The farming partners are actively involved in the industry, with Dennis as a National Director on Holstein Canada, and John as Secretary-Treasurer of the local Dairy Producer committee, past President of the Ontario County Holstein Club, and active 4-H Dairy Club Leader. Loa-De-Mede is a compost-bedded pack barn that milks 80 registered Holstein cows in a robotic dairy facility. The prefix has bred over 100 Excellent cows and exhibited numerous All-Canadian nominations including Sunspark Laramie Doobie and Loa-De-Mede Optimum Myranda. A 2019 Sale of Stars purchase of Walnutlawn Doc Brilliance has garnered the herd some top genomic offspring, as well as recent exposure in Holstein International magazine. The herd regularly wins Gold Seals for Milk Quality, was Top Management herd in Durham Region in 2020 and 2021, and boasts a rolling herd average of 12,538 kg of milk at 4.2F / 3.2P.
After John graduated from the University of Guelph in 2004 with a degree in Animal Science, he worked off farm for a decade in both the genetic and nutrition industries. Throughout his judging career, John has had the opportunity to judge multiple 4-H shows, county shows, the National Milking Shorthorn show, the Western Canadian Classic 4-H show, the EOWQ Championship Show and internationally in Colombia, Argentina and Portugal. A proud moment for John was when he was named the Champion show person for the Canadian Dairy Classic 4-H show at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 2004, and then when he was asked to be the official judge for this same prestigious show in 2016.
Juge Werry habite à Oshawa avec sa conjointe Heather et leur deux enfants, Paige et Tate. Ils sont les propriétaires de la ferme Loa-De-Mede, une ferme sur litière accumulée composte de 85 vaches qui sont traites avec des robots.
Suite à avoir obtenu son diplôme en Science animals de l’Université de Guelph, John a travaillé pendant 10 ans dans l’industrie de la génétique bovine et en nutrition. En tant que juge, John a souvent eu la chance de juger des expositions de 4-H, l’Exposition Nationale des Milking Shorthorn, la Western Canadian Classic et plus récemment, la Classique TD Canadienne de 4-H, en 2016. Ceci a été tout un honneur pour lui, puisqu’il a été déclaré le Grand Champion de présentation à ce même concours en 2004.
