Why Choose Jersey Milk?

Jersey cattle have increased their milk production after years of selective breeding. The average registered Jersey cow in the UK produces 6024 litres of milk per year with a butterfat content of 5.46% and protein of 3.83%, with the best individual animals yielding around 9000 litres or higher.

Jersey milk is unique in many ways. As a product it contains: 18% more protein, 20% more calcium, and 25% more butterfat than ‘average’ milk. It is these components which increases the nutritional value of the milk produced by a Jersey cow compared to many other dairy breeds.

Additionally, with the excellent breed traits of ease of management, feed efficiency, longevity and production, the Jersey cow is a breed fit for a variety of farming systems.

 

In the current agricultural climate, the strengths of the Jersey cow are increasingly sought after by UK dairy farmers and milk processors alike and the breed continues to gain momentum due to its low carbon footprint and efficiency in converting feed to high component milk.
