Miniature Jersey cows are only 42-44 inches or less when measured to the hook bone!
This manageable size alleviates the intimidation factor for many first-time family cow owners.
Miniature Jerseys are sure to win your immediate affection!
As a huge bonus, Miniature Jerseys consume a lot less feed than a standard-size milk cow!
In fact, Miniature Jersey cows consume about a third less--
This makes them an ideal choice for small acreage farms.
Why the Jersey Breed?
Raw cow milk is naturally fortified with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B, D, E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, amino acids, proteins and more.
But of all the dairy cow breeds, Jersey cow milk has a higher concentration of these essential nutrients.
Yep! They have a lot more to offer besides those beautiful doe eyes and that adorable dish face--
Their milk is very nutritious.
Despite their size, Miniature Jerseys pack a big punch--
They give up to three gallons a day with only once-a-day milking.
This is an easily manageable amount of milk for large and small families.
Standard-size cows may require twice-a-day milking, which is a tiring schedule to keep.
Large Standard Jerseys may also give up to 8 gallons of milk per day, leaving you frustrated with storing the excessive amount of milk.
-- not to mention Standard Jerseys require a third more feed!
