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 

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

Editors note: 
 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.
