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