There is a Yahoo miniature cattle discussion group. They have just about every variation that could be imagined.

Yep, I raise Mini Jerseys.
Don't have anything for sale right now, but I do know of a couple of breeders who do.

Hello:
Jerseys come in three different sizes.

We are breeding for both full sized and for the mid sized.

We are thinking about breeding mini Jerseys.

We did have a bull calf born in Jan 2004, but it is too early to know how big he is going to get. He is a Dexter x Jersey cross and he is doing great and growing very fast.

Regards
Lee

What are you referring to as a "mid-sized"?

The American Miniature Jersey Cattle Association registers Miniature Jerseys that are up to 46" at the hip (both parents must also be registered).
The International Miniature Cattle Breeders Society separates into standard, mid-sized, and mini, and will register animals with no other requirement other than height -- registrations through the IMCBS are NOT recognized by AMJCA.
AMJCA animals can trace their ancestry back to the Jersey importations of the 1850's, and there are less than 100 registered full-blood animals in the US. They managed to avoid the "big is better" movement, so basically they are the "original" Jerseys -- virtually unchanged from the Isle Jerseys. And most of them are polled.

Hello:
There are lots of different types of Jerseys that come in different sizes,
From the early island imports from the Island of Jersey, New Zealand, Denmark and etc. There are cattle that are also registered in the American Jersey Cattle Assn and the American Miniature Jersey Cattle Association.

Even with Jersey cattle that are registered in the American Jersey Cattle Assn herd book there are some bloodlines that are small!

Right now we do want to breed any thing uder 40", we are having problems with packs of dogs. Dogs have atacked a few of are heifers.

We are on a few mini cattle email list and that is where we talk about what size where breeding we interested in the 40" to 46" size range.
