Miniature Jersey cows are only 42-44 inches or less in height! This manageable size alleviates the intimidation factor for many first time family cow owners and is sure to win your immediate affection!
What's more, is they consume a whole lot less then a standard size milk cow! In fact, about a third less, making them an ideal choice for small acreage farms.
Why the Jersey Breed? Raw cow milk is naturally fortified with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B, D, E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, amino acids, proteins and the list goes on. Well it just so happens that Jersey milk has a higher concentration of the these essential nutrients then most other dairy breeds! Yep! They have a lot more to offer beside those beautiful doe eyes and that adorable dish face!
Despite their size, these minis pack a big punch, giving up to three gallons a day with only once a day milking. This is an ideal and manageable amount of milk for large and small families.
Whereas a standard size cow may require a twice a day milking schedule and give an excessive amount of up to 8 gallons of milk per day, not to mention requiring a third more feed!
