Similar in size to their British Jersey Island ancestors, Old World Jerseys are 5 to 10 inches shorter than today's
standard Jerseys. As a genetic throwback to the era before refrigeration, factory farming, and bigger cows, the smaller Old World Jerseys
make ideal family cows. They require less space and feed to keep as well as producing less milk and manure to handle. Today,
there are about 200 registered Old World Jerseys.
