I have been trying to breed my registered mini jersey so I can have milk and make cheese but having a hard time finding a registered bull in the Dallas Ft. Worth area or within a couple of hours drive. Does anyone know someone who has a registered bull. My cow is tested and healthy. I tried AI a couple of times and gave up.Suggestions?
Have you considered breeding her to a Dexter? I've just bred my Dexter girls to a Mini Jersey (sorry, we're in GA).This cross is called a Belfair, which is not a registered breed but I believe you can still register the calf as a percentage Jersey. I know of a few farms in mid-south Texas that raise Dexters.
Kim Jacobi raises Dexters and can put you in touch with others in the area. Her email is email@example.com. They are near Spicewood.
