I have a miniature Jersey/Lowline cross, who is my sweet little princess. She's 33" tall right now, and 1 1/2 years old. We just got the call today that her 'boyfriend' is ready to come home with us. He is also Jersey/Lowline cross, but reversed (she is mostly Jersey, he is mostly Lowline). We chose this combination so we will get good calves, no matter what. If she has a heifer - the Jersey makes for a great milker. If she has a bull (to be quickly converted to a steer), we get a freezer full of Black Angus beef! Mini cows can be kept 4 per acre; they require 30% of the food of a standard cow, but provide 70% of the meat; a mini milker provides 50-75% of the milk of her full size counterpart. Can you tell I'm geeked about miniature cattle?!!
