Island cattle grows in popularity
Jersey cattle
The export of bull semen from Jersey has risen over the past year
Jersey cows are rising in popularity in the United States.

Despite a general decline in the dairy industry, the market for Jersey cow registrations has increased in both Canada and North America.

The American Jersey Cattle Association reported it has processed more than 70,000 registrations for the third successive year.

In 2006, Jersey cattle sold at auction in the US reached their third highest level in history.

In Canada, registrations have increased more than 150% since 2004.

Derrick Frigot, president of the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural Society, said the export of bull semen from island cattle has been significantly higher than average over the past year.
