Pps 162. 1875, in which he strongly recommended to import Jersey cattle
The King of Wurtemburg imported English cattle breeds in large numbers,
primarily from the Duke of Bedford. The picture above shows some Alderneys
from his herd .
On the farm Sophienhof in Preetz [Holstein] Alderney cattle were to be seen from the 1860s. But after 20 years the owner Johansen gave up his Alderney herd.
Some Alderneys belonging to H. Jessen, Oldemorstoft, near Flensborg were exhibited in Aarhus, Denmark in 1866. Consul Bird, Flensburg had in 1855 imported a purebred Alderney bull, probably from England.
And according to Sonntag-Büsing a German breeder of Shorthorn cattle imported some Jerseys in 1880 after a visit in London. Cattle from England were according to John Thornton sent by ship to Hamburg.
By the end of the 1880s two Jersey herds were established in Striegau, near Breslau, Schlesien [now Poland] belonging to "Frl. v. Kramsta zu Muhrau" and "Herrn v. Oheimb zu Eisdorf".

In 1898 new importations of Jerseys took place via Hamburg meant for
Germany, Austria and Als [now Denmark].
