Our Cows

We have 3 different breeds of cows that live here on Arethusa Farm.

Jersey Cow Arethusa Farm

Jersey

Jersey's are known for their high butterfat content in their milk. Additionally, the Jersey breed is low maintenance with a obvious flare for personality. 

Brown Swiss Arethusa Farm

Brown Swiss

The Brown Swiss breed is the second highest milk yield after the Holsteins. Known for their longer-chain fatty acids, the Brown Swiss's are a great addition to our production. Their milk contains an average of 4% butterfat, 3.5% protein, making their milk excellent for cheese. 

Holstein Arethusa Farm

Holstein

Known globally as the world's highest-production dairy animal. Although at Arethusa we have consitent milking procedures, the Holstein's are seen as the production queens of all cows.
