- Graduating from Ridgetown College in 2011 with a diploma in Agriculture, Tyler had aspirations of being a next generation dairy farmer, but taking that next step is no easy task. On December 1, 2013 at 22 years old, Tyler purchased his uncle’s dairy quota and herd of 80 Holsteins.
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.
