Jersey vs. Holstein Dairy Cows

Jersey Cows

This breed has the highest milk fat and protein. They have a lower amount of milk compared to other breeds. Jersey cows are famously known for being the milk in Blue Bell Ice Cream. They produce an average of 1,557.7 gallons of milk.

Holstein Cows

This breed originated from the Netherlands. They are the poorest grazers. Their butterfat and milk protein is low. They produce an average of 2,219.9 gallons of milk.

Which breed?

I would choose the Jersey cow because they are most likely cheaper to raise due to the fact they can graze. Their milk will also be more expensive. I can also sell milk to Blue Bell which is pretty cool.
