Jersey Beef

The purebred Jersey cow has been a feature of the landscape for more than 200 years, and while you may see the familiar golden coat of a Jersey in countries across the world, every Jersey cow’s ancestry can be traced back to the original Jersey Herd Book, founded in 1863 by the Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society.

There are now more than 30 herds of Jersey cows across the island, with an estimated 3,000 cows.

Jersey cattle may only be a small breed, but they’re one of the best milk producers, especially when they’re grazing on the island’s lush green landscape.
