The Jersey Cattle Herd Book
 


Herd bulls in pasture at "The Oaklands".  John A. Perrée owner

The Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society have deposited their records with the Jersey Archives Service. The minute books date from 1833. The first Jersey Herd Book of Registration of Pedigree Stock dates from 1867. Letter 3. December 1997.

The Jersey Herd Book, a department of the Royal Agriculture and Horticultural Society, was formed in 1866, largely at Sir John Le Couteur`s instigation, its object being to ensure that the true parentage of every animal recorded should be known. There were at that time over 1200 head of cattle in the Island. It was not a new idea, for the 1851 Le Couteur`s diary says: "I am working at points for English cattle. The herd book will be a great aid". He was delighted to find that "the young farmers seem to come into the idea".
