The article discusses the potential of Danish Jersey cows in dairy farming. Lancashire, England dairy farmer Ian Macalpine is new to the ranks of Jersey milk producers, but he reckons he would need a Holstein herd averaging 13,500 litres to earn him the income he's getting from his Danish Jerseys. Such is the popularity of Danish Jerseys that in 2005 semen export sales outstripped Danish demand. Soren Olesen, the company which markets Danish Jersey semen, said there were 550,000 dairy cows in Denmark with about 14% being Jerseys.
