Meet Our Cows
Here at Greenoaks farm we have a small herd of Jersey cows to produce our creamy milk. We are also currently in the process of rearing our own pro-cross calves, which in the future will join the jerseys in our milking herd!
Delilah was the first cow to calve here at Greenoaks. She gave birth to Rocky on 9th January and is a very good mum.
Daisy gave birth to her son, Larry, on the 9th March. It was a tricky delivery as he was breached, but thanks to our wonderful vets we have a healthy mum and baby!
Demelza is one of our current milkers, we recently got her in calf, so have 9 months until we meet the first full jersey calf bred here at Greenoaks.
Elsie is probably the friendliest of the Pro-cross gang! She is trained to lead with a head-collar on and loves having neck scratches!
Iris also enjoys a fuss whenever anyone is about on the farm. Shes very inquisitive if work is ever going on around their pen.
Frieda just loves to play! If we are in with them strawing down their bed, you have to be careful she doesn't decided to start a game of tig!
Bella is the youngest of our Pro-crosses, but she doesn't let that stop her from trying to be the boss!
Annie is a very laid back character, she has become much more interested in fuss and attention off us recently, especially when food is about.
Dotty was very wary of people when she first came to us, however she is finally starting to come out of her shell, and occasionally will come and sniff us to see if we have any food!
Jersey X Blue calf
Rocky is Delilah's first born calf since being with us, and the first calf born into our micro dairy herd! He was born on the 9th Jan. He is a Jersey X British Blue.
Jersey X Hereford calf
Larry is Daisy's first born calf since being with us, and the second calf born into our micro-dairy herd! He was born on the 9th March, and had a tricky delivery as he was breached. Thanks so our wonderful vets, he was delivered safely and in good health.
Brown Swiss cow
Doris is slightly unique in our herd, as although she looks like a big jersey cow, she's actually a Brown Swiss. This means she is bigger than our Jersey's and has a much more laid back attitude. Brown Swiss cows are similar to jerseys for being known to have delicious creamy milk.
Dixie is the 5th cow we've bought since starting our micro dairy! She's the smallest cow we have, and is apparently a good escape artist, so we will be keeping a close eye on her!
Delphine is Demelza's first born calf since being with us, and our first full jersey calf, so we were over the moon that she was a girl! Delphine will stay with us, and join our milking herd once she is old enough. We cannot wait to see her grow up!
