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.
The Hillside herd makes its way to the parlour in the scenic Yorkshire Dales. If modern farming has it's way, this will be a sight from the past, as cows will be housed in huge milking "industrial units," where they will never see a blade of grass again or feel the elements. We will never again see cattle in our fields. Tragedy if we let this happen.
