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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 - email@example.com - web site: www.minicattle.com also with the minjerseyherdbook.com

Years ago when I started raising little Jerseys there was no registry for these little cows.
IMCBR was the First to register these little cows. Since there was no prior registry cattle didn't have registered names. No Farm herd names in those days. . So it had to start somewhere. Now a days Everyone has there own Farm name or Prefix.
It wasn't a thing back in those days.. Now I see where the MJHB is changing prefix on certain animals. I do not agree with this practice . No one has the right to change a legal document without the permission of the breeder/owner of the animal.
These are my opinions on this subject.
I purchased Blossom, Pumpkin,
Bob Honey ,Petals from Annette Hesters in IN in 1997/98. Along with several other bovines . None of these were registered animals when purchased. I had them registered with the IMCBR shortly after purchase.
I did not breed these bovines here on the farm but I raised them from 3 to 10 days of age and gave them a good home for years. These were a small part of my starter herd I acquired back in the beginning.
