Why use Lessor Jersey Semen?

*  Works good for first time fresheners-producing a smaller calf with fewer calving complications.
*  Calves will be polled (NO HORNS), since bull is naturally polled.
*  Will improve udder confirmation and increase milk production in Belmont/Irish Jersey  and Dexter cattle.
*  Bulls are  approved Foundation Bulls with the Minature Cattle Breed Society.
*  A breed of cattle with personality - docile temperament and easy to handle.
*  Crossed with a standard-size Jersey will bring size down approximately 4 inches on the first cross.
COLORLight fawn to red to dark brown to shades of black.  Some white permissible.

HEAD  Broad forehead, tapering gracefully toward the muzzle with a dish face. Strong lower jaw
   with jaws meeting properly.  Eyes should be bright and prominent, wide spread and bulging,
                  thus the saying, "Rabbit-Eyed Jersey".

NECK Well set into the shoulders, not too thick or too short.
                
HORNS       Most Lessor Jersey's are naturally polled animals, however, miniature Jersey's with horns are acceptable.

BODY Well-proportioned regarding height to length.  The small Jersey should resemble their larger
                 counter-part completely in every aspect as to dairy type and individual.  The typical cow will
                 be refined, feminine appearance with ample substance.  A straight underline with udder
                 firmly attached front and rear with strong center support.  Udder and teats should be of
                 moderate size with teats of equal size squarely placed on an udder with clearly defined
                 halving.  Animals should exhibit sharpness th strength indicating productive efficiency.  Udder
                 should show traits that contribute to high milk yeild and a long productive life. 

                 The typical bull will show a masculine appearance with ample substance.  Disposition should
                 be very docile and quiet.  Gentleness a must.  Their legs will be short to moderate, but not
                 excessively long, and well placed under the body; forelegs straight and squarely placed; hind
                 legs nearly perpendicular from hock to pastern when viewed from the side and straight when
                 viewed from the rear.  Feet short, well rounded with deep heel, level sole, and toes properly
                 placed.

WEIGHT    Cows at three years of age and over should not exceed 700 pounds live weight.  Bulls at three
                years of age and over should not exceed 900 pounds live weight.

HEIGHT     Mature animals must be 42" or under at three years of age to be classified as miniature, or over 43" up to 48" at maturity to be classified as Mid-Size.  Measurement is taken at the Hook bone located directly in front of the hip bone.

BREEDING  Must be approved breeding-an animal must not be the result of inbreeding (inbreeding is
               defined as more than 50% influence of an ancestor).

REGISTRATION  A picture of each animal being registered must accompany each application. 
               Certificates are TEMPORARY until maturity (three years of age) at which time height
               measurement is required for permanent registry.  Breed of ancestors must be listed on
               pedigree, if available.


 
                      
                 
Breed Traits For 'Lessor' Jersey
         with the I.M.C.B.R.
Thank you for your interest in my Lessor Jerseys, they are still a Rare and Unique breed of cattle.  
I have had so many people ask me how much they cost.  Pricing of a Lessor Jersey  would be up to the individual breeder.  Keep in mind though that these cattle are still rare and would be priced as such.  Increasing your herd is a slow process.  It  just takes time due to the fact a cow takes nine months to have a calf, and you only get one calf a year.

Why have a Lessor Jersey ?  These small cattle are more docile and easier to handle.  They are easier on land, equipment, and your facilities; they do not have the size or bulk to do much harm on fencing.  A small acreage owner can handle twice as many small cows on the same amount of land it would take to raise just one full-sized animal.  Lessor Jerseys eat about 1/3 the amount of grain and hay as a standard size cow.  You can easily keep two or three on an acre of good pasture.  I mix corn, dairy supplement, vitamins, minerals, salt, and wet molasses for my cows' feed.  Lessor Jerseys are very hardy animals and adapt to whatever climate they are in, as long as you have shade when it is hot and some type of shelter from wet and cold weather.  You must realize. however, ' Lessor' Jerseys are dairy animals, they give  milk and must be milked twice a day or have calves to take the milk.
I am doing all I can to promote and protect them.  Only sincere, dedicated people with the same affection as I have will be able to buy one from me.  Anyone who may be in the area is welcome to come by and see my cattle.  I am always willing to show my little cows to interested people and can talk about cows all day.  If you have any questions, call me at 618 - 483 - 5081 or email me at:  timothydavid56@hotmail.com

Most all my Lessor Jersey  cattle are  registered with the International Miniature Cattle Breeders Society, 2504 156th Ave S. E. , Covington, WA  98042.  The phone is:  252 - 631-1911  or email - info@minicattle.com - web site:  www.minicattle.com also with the minjerseyherdbook.com

I am the breed registry co-chairperson of the Lessor Jersey  breed

Please Note!
For those looking to purchase Mini Jersey semen.
Don't be mislead by some web sites promoting semen  from Mature F.P, 36  inch Mini Jersey bull . This is False!
I have yet to see a Mature Purebred Mini Jersey bull that is 36" tall.Maturity at 3 yrs of age.

Also be aware that there are those Breeders promoting mini Jerseys that are not Mini!  I get requests every week from those who have been mislead and wanting to know what to do with the animal.
