A Short History of the Blue Mill Meadows Miniature Jersey Herdsires 

Here are the herdsires and bulls that we have used in our herd since 2006.

We bought our first miniature Jersey, Dolly, in 2006 and selected  miniature Jersey bull semen. We continued to AI our cows through 2015 using semen from miniature Jersey bulls and from short-statured New Zealand Jersey bulls. In 2015 we switched to natural service using the bulls raised here at Blue Mill Meadows as herdsires.

2006 - 2015
Herdsires by AI
