Jersey Cows

These animals are more than just iconic emblems of Jersey’s agricultural history; they are a reflection on good husbandry and commercial success. They are economical to rear, but nevertheless give the highest quality milk of any cow.


Wherever they are, all Jersey cows can be traced back to the original herd book of 1866. They are found all over the world, either in pure Jersey herds, or often in mixed herds to improve the milk quality.
These charming animals are more than just emblems of Jersey’s agricultural history; for many of our visitors they are an iconic welcome to the island. They are insatiably curious, and will happily approach anyone who stands nearby, which makes them a very engaging subject to talk about.
And of course, once the memory of meeting these doe-eyed characters has faded, a taste of the creamy milk, yoghurt or ice cream produced from their world-famous milk , brings back the moment.
