Miniature Jerseys Cattle
Mini Jerseys give between 2-6 gallons of milk per day. An indication of how much milk your mini Jersey cow will give is to look at her dam and what she produced. Miniature Jersey Cows by the of three years of age and over should not exceed 700 pounds and be under 42 inches tall at the hip to be classified as miniature. The Miniature Jersey is actually not a bred-down version of the standard Jersey of today as you might think, they are the result of long term and selective breeding of descendants of the early, original Jersey cattle that were imported from the Isle of Jersey.
SOLD MINATURE CATTLE
We have a 39" Mulberry mini Jersey cow available. We are downsizing temporality because we are relocating the farm. Shannon is in great shape, handles are good for hand or machine milking, no kicking. She is halter trained, gentle and her last calf was a bull and she calved without issues, and is a good mom. Raised her calf independently and would make a great nurse cow as she very gently and willing to let another calf be with her. She would also be good as a family milk cow as she's very friendly towards my children ( they have milked her).
She keeps easily with electric cattle fencing.
She keeps her conditions on pasture and hay without grain.
We are a small closed herd, but I will have her disease tested for the new owners and our vet will issue a Florida health certificate.
I can help find reliable transportation to your address.
