Jersey

Jersey

The Jersey is a British breed of small dairy cattle from Jersey, in the Channel Islands. It is one of three local cattle breeds, the others being the Alderney- now extinct - and the Guernsey. It is highly productive, the milk is high in butterfat and has a characteristic yellowish tinge. Jerseys occur in all shades of brown, from light tan to almost black. They are frequently fawn in colour. All purebred Jerseys  have a lighter band around their muzzles, a dark switch (long hair on the end of the tail), and black hooves.
