The Golden Guernsey is what is often called a yard goat. It has been traditionally kept even in very small yards to provide milk for families in the UK. It is a light eater, needing less food than some other breeds to produce its rich milk. There are no more animals of this breed being imported to the United States currently but breeders are working to have the breed recognized by the American Dairy Goat Association.
The Jersey breed of dairy cow originates from the Island of Jersey and it is quite distinct from all other breeds of livestock. Renowned for it’s beauty, ease of management and natural ability to produce rich creamy milk, the “ Jersey” is a product of the Island, it’s soil, it’s climate, it’s people and their history.
