Jersey.jpgThe Jersey breed originated on the Island of Jersey, a small British island in the English Channel off the coast of France. The Jersey is one of the oldest dairy breeds, having been reported by authorities as being purebred for nearly six centuries.
Adaptable to a wide range of climatic and geographical conditions
The Jersey cattle are brown- grayish with the gray darkening more on the neck and head. Their eyes have a protruding look. They are small - medium in size with an average body weight of 350kg.
They are kept for milk. Their milk production is moderate with an average of 20 litres per day. The milk has very high butter content of about 5.2%.

They do not require a lot of feed with a daily requirement of about 65-85kg of fresh feed. Jersey cattle are tough and can survive in various climatic regions. However they are vulnerable to milk fever and tick borne diseases.
They are recommended for cross-breeding to improve local breeds like Zebu and Boran. These are best suited in drier areas as they are hardy and are not heavy feeders.Find these at ADC Suam and ADC Sabwani.
