I am fairly new to mini Jerseys, but found this tool online. I am blown away at the info found here to help me along in my search to build my herd. THANK YOU for making this wonderful tool to use as I need it. Invaluable!
Wonderful resource for Mini Jerseys!
The Miniature Jersey Herd Book and Registry website is a tool that I use daily. The records are backed by DNA testing which makes them accurate. No other miniature jersey registry offer such a complete and trusted record of our little cows.

MJHB is a verified ancestry database for my mini Jersey cows. I love that all the cows are DNA verified and pictured in the Herd Book - a wonderful and much needed resource!
Mini Miracles Farm was fortunate to be one of the earlier members of MJHB&R. At the time we joined we were at a turning point in our breeding program and were experiencing difficulties in tracking pedigrees. The Herd Book encouraged DNA testing which revealed that more than one of our animals did not carry the bloodlines represented on their registration papers from another registry.

The work and dedication that has been put into this registry is outstanding. The records are kept up to date as new information is uncovered and new calves are born. The MJHB&R is above all others will take the miniature jersey cow into the future.

I have only my single cow registered in the Herd Book, but I love to look at the cattle photos of others! I do believe in factual reporting and great service. The MJHB has both! The Herd Book gets all my business because of their passion for this breed.
We appreciate the commitment to excellence and support recent efforts and recommendations about disease testing. We look to the MJHB&R website for the latest in testing options, suggestions and general information that may help us improve our herd’s health and quality.

‘The Miniature Jersey Herd book and Registry – everything you wanted to know about miniature Jersey’s, but were afraid to ask! Seriously, no other miniature cattle registry offers the dedication, accuracy and prompt, personal service as the MJHB. And I have yet to find a website with such a variety of needful information for the small cow owner, breeder or enthusiast. The MJHB&R takes all information that is presented on this website, checks, then double checks it for accuracy prior to posting it...truly a website of integrity! All other MJ registries follow the MJHB&R and even copy her work to their own sites, to try to achieve the standard of excellence set forth by the MJHB&R...it is THAT good!

The Miniature Jersey Herd Book is simply the best resource for information pertaining to the miniature Jersey cattle. Whether you’re interested in viewing pedigree lineage, purchasing qualified semen to AI your mini or post your cattle for sale this site has it all. I especially like viewing the hundreds of photos of registered cattle. The aspect I like the best about the MJHB & R is that it takes registering your miniature Jersey cattle seriously, using DNA testing to verify the bloodlines. This registry is the FIRST one to require DNA for verification of all animals entered. No other registry for the miniature Jersey cattle does this! As a newbie, I would have been lost without this valuable resource!
The Miniature Jersey Herd Book & Registry is by far the best Miniature Jersey registry out there. The knowledge and experience of this registry are bar none. The timely fashion in which we receive papers, and the ever present help and love of these miniature beauties from Mrs. Ridings, is of the utmost value. If you’re looking to acquire or manage/register a Miniature Jersey I would recommend only this registry.

I could write a book about what the Miniature Jersey Herd Book & Registry means to me! To sum it up, it's so helpful to have a database of pedigrees to be able to learn and research lineages and to see what your heifer/bull's ancestors look like. It's great to know that every animal registered through MJHB&R has accurate DNA and records, and if there's a mistake, that it'll be corrected. I hope the Herd Book continues to grow and prosper. I truly believe the Herd Book greatly benefits the Miniature Jersey Cattle breed in many aspects.

The Herd Book is my go to research tool that helps me with learning bloodlines and many other things. This is the most informative site available. I adore my little Jerseys and wouldn’t know what to do without the Herd Book! Thanks so much to Deb with for all her admin duties!
The Herd Book is the best friend of the owners and breeders of these beautiful little milk cows. The Herd Book provides priceless information about the lineages, real history of these cows to its members. I really like the idea of DNA testing that provides the owner and buyer proof of the cow parentage. It gives one peace of mind knowing you are getting what the seller represents.

The Miniature Jersey Herd Book serves an important purpose for those owning and hoping to own mini Jersey cows. The website offers informative resources and a detailed description of the breed. Although the process to register is multi- step, it is important in verifying genetics and ensuring pure breeding. Deb walked me through the steps making what initially seemed daunting, very straightforward. The Herd Book is the place to go for information and resources, including sales.
MJHB is an excellent resource for Miniature Jersey owners. They are passionate about developing a quality genetic database. Thank you MJHB for your high standards.
Dear fellow & future milk maids, I love love love the MJHB&R. I purchased my very first cow off the Sales page over 5 years ago. The registry caught my eye and gained my trust because the pedigrees are based on verified DNA and disease testing is encouraged. The Registry is still the place I go to research and educate myself. I have received nothing but excellence and professionalism. The benefits and services have continued to be endless. I am so grateful to have a place to help preserve the genetics of not just my family's MJ milk cow but yours too."
