Did you know?
The milk of the Jersey cow is particularly suitable for making cheese thanks to its high fat and protein content and the high proportion of carotene and calcium.
This small breed of cattle originated on the British Channel Island of Jersey as early as the 18th century, presumably from French cattle imported there. Since the import of cattle to the island was banned in 1763 in order to avoid epidemics, the breed was kept there in pure breeding. Export to other countries began in the 19th century, which resulted in a large population, especially in Denmark and the USA.
The small, delicately built jersey comes in color variations from cream to yellow-brown, light red to almost black, with the head almost always dark. Often there is a dark eel line on the back. The big, dark eyes are very expressive. The Jersey is horned by nature, but the calves are usually dehorned early.
Jerseys are bred as pure dairy cattle. Due to their particularly high-fat milk (five to six percent) and the relatively high protein content (four percent), they are often crossed into other breeds in order to improve their milk quality. Keeping some Jersey cows in a herd of different breeds also increases the total fat content of the milked milk. The milk volume reaches an average of 5,000 kilograms. Jerseys are precocious and easy to calve, and their longevity promises a long service life.
