All About Miniature Jersey Cows
Welcome to MiniJerseyFarm.com, website of Mini Miracles Farm in Pattonville, Texas and home to some of America’s best Old World Jerseys.
We at Mini Miracles Farm believe in the traditions of the American small farmer and homesteader. We believe that one of the greatest blessings we possess is the freedom to live as close to nature as possible, to eat those things that we grow and produce by the sweat of our brow, and by the grace of God.
We believe that the less we fiddle with nature the better off we are, and we are excited about the return to the family farm that is taking place in America.
However, not everything on the farm is as it once was. Over the years in the interest of progress, scientists have changed the genetics of our food, and dairy farmers have bred animals ever larger in the interest of more milk production. In the case of the Jersey cow, what was once a small animal producing 2-4 gallons of milk per day and eating very little, has become twice her original size producing more than 10 gallons of milk per day and consuming 2-3 times the feed and resources of the original Jersey.
So as we return to the small family farm, we need to find that small milk cow again. The cow that will produce the amount of milk we need and consume as little of our resources as possible while doing so. That small Jersey of old is now called the Miniature Jersey.
The Miniature Jersey is not a bred-down version of the modern Jersey, they are descendants of the original Jersey imported from the Isle of Jersey in the 1800 and early 1900’s.
Most of our breeding stock are 100% foundation pure, with a few “percentage” animals for the person looking for something unique. All of our breeding stock are registered, which ensures that you know the heritage of your animal and maintains the integrity of the breed.
So if you have a few moments, take a look at our website, and enjoy your visit. We appreciate your interest in the Miniature Jersey.
