FAMILY AND / OR BUSINESS NAME
210 Jersey Cows on an all year round housed robot milking system.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD PEDIGREE JERSEYS?
Coulter, Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
SUPPLIES / PRODUCES
We supply milk to Graham’s The Family Dairy.
WHAT WAS YOUR REASON FOR CHOOSING TO MILK PEDIGREE JERSEY CATTLE?
Quality of milk, efficiency of grass conversion to butterfat, high health, longevity, and milk solids production.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE JERSEY BREED AND IN PARTICULAR YOUR HERD?
Our cows are happy and cow health is essential to us. We have the initial input from our Danish girls and are focusing on improving udder attachment as this is crucial when working with robots. To achieve this, we are working with bulls which favour these attributes.
