Welcome to the World Jersey Cattle Bureau
The first Jerseys were introduced into Brazil in 1896 by Dr. Joaquin Francisco Assis do Brasil, who, at that time, was the Brazilian Ambassador in Great Britain. He decided to import his first Jerseys from the Island of Jersey after having seen the Jerseys in the Royal Herd of Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle. In recent times, Brazil has been a major importer of Jerseys, particularly from North America. The breed is growing faster than any other, and the Brazilian Jersey Association, which celebrated its centenary in 1996, has recorded in excess of 120,000 registrations, and in 2002 alone, registered 16,612 head. The potential for the Jersey in Brazil is enormous in Latin America’s largest country.
