What a better way to end the week than talking about the Golden Guernsey!

Guernsey dairy cows are a popular breed among dairy farmers and according to Ag Daily they:
➡Get their golden nickname from their distinct golden-color milk which is the result of high levels of beta-carotene!
➡Are typically a golden fawn color with white areas across their body. 
➡Weigh about 1,200 lbs. 
➡Originated from the Isle of Guernsey in the English Channel. 

Check back in next week where I will be discussing Dairy by the Numbers for Pennsylvania!
