If you are looking for a docile cow this is the right breed. They have a very sweet character and are easy to handle. This breed strives at warm and tropical weathers but you should be aware that they produce “yellow milk” and some buyers might not like it. It all comes to what you are looking for: high quality or high quantity? In terms of quality this milk is excellent but they produce little amounts (around 8-10 kg per day in my experience). If you have customers interested in high fat milk you should choose Guernsey cows.
