TOMSK, Oct 16 – RIA Tomsk. The first batch of Jersey dairy cows came from Denmark to Asinovsky district of the Tomsk region for further breeding, the press service of the regional administration said on Wednesday. Animals are characterized by high milk yields, their fat milk will be used for the production of long-ripening cheeses, representative of the farm told RIA Tomsk.

"Fifty-six heads of Jersey breed cows arrived from Denmark in Asinovsky district last week. The first representatives of the new cattle breed in our region – 30 stirks and 26 heifers, which will calve in December of this year, will arrive in peasant farm "Mezina S.V. (the village of Yagodnoye, the Asinovsky district)", – is said in the regional administration release.

It is added that the farm, designed for 100 heads of cows, is located in the village of Yagodnoye in the Asinovsky district. In 2019, the peasant farm received a grant in the amount of 30 million rubles as part of the "Family Livestock Farm" contest. In addition to breeding a new breed, it also plans to supply milk from Jersey cows for the production of cheeses.

As a representative of the peasant farm specified RIA Tomsk, the "Danes" perfectly experienced the nine-day move to Siberia.

"These are good, unpretentious in maintenance, miniature cows that look like a doe: only 1.2 meters tall and weighs about 400 kilograms. They are highly productive - they produce from 30 to 40 liters of milk per day, which has a high content of proteins and fats (more than 6 %) and calcium. This fat content is excellent for making long-ripening cheeses", – the interlocutor of the agency said.

She noted that the farm plans to receive the first milk yields in late December – early January 2020, after the first calving: "This is a rather expensive breed ... We do not plan to buy more cows. We will work with these 56 cows. We expect that 50% of their first calving will be "girls", which will allow us to further develop the herd".
