Miniature Jerseys- Our Breeding Stock


So, what exactly are "Mid-Size" and  "Miniature" Jerseys?
Mid-Size Jerseys are not a new breed. They are descendants of the original Jerseys imported from the Jersey Islands and Britain. They normally range in size from 48-42 1/2 inches in height. After much research and reading emails form the Royal Registrar of Jerseys on the Isle of Jersey, it is my belief that Mid-Size Miniature Jerseys are very similar to the original Jerseys imported from the Jersey Islands and Great Britain. The main difference is that a polled gene has been introduced somewhere in the genetic history which has eliminated the horns that all Jersey Island cows were born with. Many of the Mid-Size cows are now born without horns.

Through selective breeding in the United States the Miniature Jerseys have evolved with heights ranging 42 inches and under. These very small homestead cows are ideal for many self sustaining farms and households. They are commonly polled (hornless) and are bred down replicas of the modern Standard Size Jerseys commonly found today in the United States. There are a lot of websites that give different theory's on the evolution and history of Miniature Jerseys. However, after talking to many breeders and historians and reading many of the published History's of Importation of Jerseys to the USA, I believe that most of what is published is purely rumor and hype. Regardless of how the small size came into being, these little cows are wonderful in every way and I feel privileged to own a herd of them.

If you are curious about the heights on these cows, I update them on occasion. We measure to the hook bone which has been the historical place to measure all Miniature Cows in accordance with most of the Miniature Cow registries. Add 1  and  1/2 inch to the height if you want to know how tall they are to the "top" of the hip bone across the back. If the cows birth date show them to be 3 years or older it is a permanent height. If they are under 3 years old the height listed was the last measured. Miniature cows are not assigned "permanent" papers until they are 3 years old and their adult height is known. In January 2014, our Veterinarian certified our heights on our cows. 

All of our cows are registered with the International Cattle Breeders Society. Some are dual registered with American Miniature Jersey Association. We no longer have any association with Miniature Jersey Herdbook.

High Altitude Certified: Our herd has been tested by Dr. Tim Holt of Colorado State University Veterinary Hospital. He is renowned for his development of the "PAP" test which measures the Pulmonary Arterial Pressure in cattle. High Altitude disease in cattle is caused by hypertension in response to low oxygen levels at higher elevations. Our entire herd has been tested for High Altitude Disease and they are all NEGATIVE for this heritable problem.
