Looking into purchasing a "Miniature Cow". Such as a Smaller version of the original Jersey Cow im looking into the Miniature size for my small hobby farm. We would be looking to use her for Milk and raising the calf for butcher. No Bulls only because i really dont need one when there is artificial Insemination. My question is, Are jerseys raised for meat? I know, stupid question. We do not like to eat meat from the store, specially Beef. Id rather raise my own. I do not want to do miniature Herefords.
