Golden milk girls

Guernseys are known for their golden colored milk. The milk is very good flavored, but the color may throw off someone not accustomed to its unusual tint. In general, Guernseys are frail cattle. Yes, you can find some outstanding cattle in the industry, but many lack the dairy strength, width and capacity. We have shown a mother/daughter pair that were very correct but just too small to make big wins. They did great at local shows. Usually not much competition at a local show so it does allow a 4-H member showing the breed to typically earn some hardware (trophies).
