About The Guernsey Breed
The Isle of Guernsey, a tiny island in the English Channel off the coast of France, is the birthplace of the Guernsey cow. About 960 A.D., besieged by buccaneeres and sea rovers, the Island came to the attention of Robert Duke of Normandy. He sent a group of militant monks to educate the natives to cultivate the soil and defend the land. The monks brought with them the best bloodlines of French cattle -- Norman Brindles, also known as Alderneys, from the province of Isigny and the famous Froment du Leon breed from Brittany -- and developed the Guernsey.
The Guernsey is a breed of cattle used in dairy farming. It is fawn and white in color. Most people think milk from one cow would be much like the milk from any other; however different breeds make milk that contains distinct varieties of milk proteins. So if you haven't tried it yet, you should!
