Cow Breeds : Solids Content

Hi, Milkfans

Here’s some quick dairy-info on breeds and their milksolids ratios to volume. In South Africa the main breeds are : Jersey – Guernsey – Ayrshire – Friesen. They display a decrease in milksolids and a corresponding increase in volume of production from left to right.

There may be some overlap in figures between individual cows and herds, but the above is generally accepted to be the case.

Goodday to you,
Leon the Milkman
