The famous Guernsey was developed on the Isle of Guernsey in the English Channel from foundation stock of French cattle around 960 A.D., & introduced into the United States in the 1830s. Being moderate producers of milk, Guernseys are second only to Jerseys in the amount of fat produced in the milk with a unique golden color, & are popular with people wishing to make cheese and butter from milk. Yummy!
