Mini-Jersey Milking Cows

Miniature Jersey Milking cows are not a bred-down version of the modern Jersey, they are descendants of the original Jersey imported from the Isle of Jersey in the 1800's. The Miniature Jersey Cow is one of the most popular and rarer breeds of miniature dairy cattle. Milk is higher in butterfat and they produce milk at 2-4 gallons per day. See our mini cows.

Miniature Donkeys

Miniature donkeys are native to the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The size of these donkeys vary from 26 inches to 36 inches at the withers. The Miniature Donkey is one of the friendliest and most affectionate animals of its type. They are very tame and gentle. They love people and seek attention. They do this with friendly nudges and brays and even little sounds to get you to pay attention. Mini donkeys are very intelligent, docile and easily trained. See our mini donkeys.

Miniature Goats

The Nigerian Dwarf goat is a miniature dairy goat breed of West African ancestry. They were originally brought to the U.S. on ships as food for large cats such as lions. Dwarf goats are popular as pets due to their easy maintenance, small stature and colorful appearance. Dwarf Goats can give a surprising quantity of milk for their size, with production ranging from 1 to 8 pounds of milk per day. See our mini goats.
