The Guernsey cow is known for producing high-butterfat, high-protein milk with a high concentration of betacarotene, up to three times more than commercial milk.  Guernseys produce their high-quality milk while consuming 20- to 30-percent less feed per kg of milk produced than larger dairy breeds. 

The Guernsey is also an excellent grazer.  She is a cow that is made for pasture-based milk production.  Because of her grazing abilities, gentle disposition, calving ease and ability to efficiently produce milk with less feed than other breeds, she is the ideal candidate for intensive grazing.  Another attractive characteristic of Guernseys is the breed’s adaptability to warmer climates.
