Bedford Diary Princess Shares Pizza Recipe
February 11, 2021
As the Bedford County Dairy Princess, I would like to introduce another breed of dairy cattle – the Jersey. The Jersey breed originated from the Isle of Jersey in the early 1700s. This breed comes in all shades of light and dark brown. Some attributes that Jerseys are known for is their excellent grazing abilities. They also have extremely high butterfat contents in their milk. As compared to other dairy breeds, Jerseys have 18% higher butterfat content and also 20% higher calcium content. Another fun fact about Jerseys is that they can hear higher and lower frequencies than humans!
