Why Jerseys?

There are many advantages to having Jerseys in your herd. But the primary reason is to enhance the quality of your production - protein and fat - and get paid for it.

Jerseys are smaller, use fewer natural resources, convert feed to milk with less investment, and produce a smaller carbon footprint. They have a longer productive life that produces a more nutrient-rich milk that fits perfectly with the type of dairy products that consumers want.

Jerseys are trouble-free, and in increasing numbers, commercial producers are choosing Jerseys because they calve earlier, stay healthier, breed back sooner and produce a higher value product. Jerseys are the perfect breed for these times.
