We typically have a waiting list for our animals and we try to match the available animals with the home that is best suited to their individual assets and/or needs. This brings the best results not only for the animals, but also for those who purchase them.
If you would like your name to be included on our waiting list, please send an email to email@example.com and include your needs, desires and qualifications. (ie: bull calf, mature bull, heifer calf, older heifer, trained milk cow, percentage miniatures, native pure animals or only foundation pure.)
Our Jerseys are registered with The American Jersey Cattle Association or the American Miniature Jersey Association and some are dual registered.
We are often asked the "cost" to purchase a Miniature Jersey. The following chart is meant to give folks an average cost based on the current market price for the Minis and standards. It is of course impossible to set a blanket price if one wants to be fair about the animals they are selling as there are many variables. This list is simply meant as a starting point and actual animals listed for sale my be higher or lower than the price chart:
Mini cows Foundation Pure: $3500
Mini heifers Foundation Pure at weaning: $2500
Percentage heifers at weaning (75%): $1800
Percentage cows ( 50%): $1800
Percentage heifers at weaning (50%): $1250
Bulls and Bull calves:
Percentage Bull calves $550
Native Pure Bull Calves $1000
Foundation Pure Bull Calves $1500
Proven, mature breeding bulls start at $1500 and go up.
If you have made it this far and are still interested in purchasing one of our beautiful bovines, please read the following document carefully. Each individual who purchases an animal will be asked to sign this document and abide by the terms therein:
Attention: We are frequently asked about A1/A2 testing.
WE DO NOT test for the A2 Beta Casein. It's not important to me as a cattle owner and I am not going to cull out my cows based on their Beta Casein status. Because I understand it is important to some individuals, a potential buyer may pay for this testing at their own expense and the testing expenses are nonrefundable even in the event the buyer chooses not to buy a particular bovine. Our prices are fair and often much less than what other Family Cow and Miniature Cattle Breeders are charging. While I must make a profit to run a business, my top priority is finding good homes for the cattle I can't keep and making available quality cattle at a fair price to others so they can realize their dreams like I have.
The same holds true for all other types of testing other than Brucellosis and TB which we do routinely and which is required to send cattle out of state. We have a closed herd and have never had any issues with diseases. We understand the wisdom of caution and are willing to test our animals at the potential buyer's expense with their knowledge that the money they invest in testing is nonrefundable even if they should choose not to purchase an animal.
|Grace is on the Right|
Four year old, small standard, unregistered cow. Second Lactation. She will only be sold at current time as a package deal with her unregistered HEIFER calf. Both cow and calf have some miniature in their pedigree but won't make my cut to be registered as miniature or even miniature breeding stock, thus they come unregistered. Cow is giving about two gallons of milk a day, with calf nursing 24/7 and twice a day milking.
Cow and calf combination is priced at $2000 firm
Not halter or lead trained. Walks willingly into the stanchion. Priority given to local and residents of Virginia to expedite sale. Sales out of state possible with non refundable deposit, and additional charges for health certificate, testing and vet fees. Never had mastitis or any type of illness.
Only selling because I no longer have a share program , have no time to milk multiple cows, and need to downsize again.
THIS COW IS A GOOD COW BUT WOULD DO BETTER WITH AN EXPERIENCED DAIRY COW OWNER .
