Jersey vs. Guernsey

By Trey Loera

Jersey Cow

  • Heat tolerance perfect for Texas
  • Averages 4.7% butterfat
  • Lowest amount of milk produces
  • Average: 13396 lbs of milk or 1557 gallons

Guernsey Cow

  1. High butterfat and protein production
  2. 1150 lbs at mature
  3. Averages 4.48% butterfat
  4. Average: 13398 lbs of milk or 1557 gallons
In my own opinion I would choose the jersey cow. They have a better butterfat percentage and the gallons are almost exactly the same. Living here in Texas, the best cow would be the jersey cow becaus of their heat tolerance.
