We love our Jerseys!
Over the 15 plus years of our farming journey we have raised many different breeds of cattle. Of all the cows we have raised Jerseys both standard and mini have been our tried and true breed. Chiclet is our Miniature Jersey standing at around 36". Note in one of the pictures below "yours truly" :-) as I am getting her udder cleaned and ready for milking. Almost three years ago now she gave us a beautiful bull calf. We call him Little Bull! She is dry at present. Her son has grown into a fine bull. A bit ornery so he will eventually go to freezer camp. He is past the height requirement for a mini which happens sometimes. His Daddy Tommy Hawk was about 44" tall. We decided to be without our rich milk long enough so we purchased Summer Thyme a standard sized Jersey. Summer as we call her gives us rich A2/A2 grass fed milk! About 3.5-4 gallons a day! Summer gave us a beautiful heifer calf on May 1st. We are back to milking twice a day and Zoe is growing strong.
