Habitat: A domestic breed of cow, originated in the United States

Jerseys come in all shades of brown, from light tan to almost black. They are frequently fawn in colour. All purebred Jerseys have a lighter band around their muzzle, a dark switch (long hair on the end of the tail), and black hooves, although in recent years color regulations have been relaxed to allow a broadening of the gene pool. The cows are calm and docile animals, but tend to be a little more nervous than other dairy cow breeds. Jersey bulls are another matter. While all dairy bulls are considered as dangerous animals, Jersey bulls are considered by many to be the least docile of the dairy breeds. The cows are also highly recommended cows for first time owners and marginal pasture.
