Jamie HowardWestern District
Jamie Howard was born and raised in Flemingsburg, Kentucky where his career in the dairy industry began through the ownership and operation of Howard-View Holsteins. Although just a small herd of 35-40 registered Holsteins, it carried the honour of being the 8th Highest Classified Herd (BAA) in the United States from 2006-2007. Presently, Jamie operates Howard-View Holsteins from his family’s small hobby farm in Burgessville, Ontario as a small breeding establishment while serving as the EastGen Regional Sales Manager for Western Ontario. He has become recognised for the development of national show-level animals and the marketing of elite genetics world-wide. Even in his free time, Jamie remains active in the dairy industry, as he invests his time supporting his children, Madison, Morgan and McKenzie, alongside his wife, Angela, and coaching them in dairy judging and showmanship in 4-H. Jamie has had ample personal experience in dairy judging, being 2nd High Individual in the 4-H Judging Contest at the 1985 World Dairy Expo and judging numerous shows encompassing several dairy breeds, ranging from county to state championship level. He also actively remains on the judging list for the Holstein USA.
