Five year old purebred (not registered) Jersey for sale, DOB 04/2010. Sage was bred late as she wasn't needed as a nurse cow by her former owner. We purchased her in November of 2013 and she freshened in February of 2014. I milked her twice a day until September; then due to work constraints I went to once a day. At her twice a day milking she gave 4.5 gallons. At her once a day she consistently (19 months and counting now) gives 1.5 gallons, dropping to 1.25 when in heat. She is open. She is also very overweight. She has not been overfed, but rather she gains weight just looking at the grass. She is very lazy and spends most of her time under a tree chewing her cud. Her beta-casein protein is A2/A2 as tested by UC Davis veterinary genetic laboratory. She has been tested negative for Johnes, BVD, BVL and a host of other things. She has great milk with a nice cream line.
She is super sweet, well trained and extremely tolerant of children and other animals. She tends to like to adopt baby goats and other milk thieves.
We have sadly decided to sell her as she really needs a family that can milk her twice a day and perhaps put some calves on her to help her lose weight and then get her bred. With my work schedule I just can't get it done.
***We won't be selling her to the first person offering to purchase her, we will be selling her to the best home we can find for her.***
Extra sturdy milking/vetting stanchion also available.
