Introduction to the Australasian Jersey Herd Book - Volume 1 published in 1901 written by Mr M.HAUTRIVE - Honorary Secretary and Treasurer, Jersey Cattle Society.
At the Sydney show of 1899 I spoke to several Jersey Cattle breeders about farming a Society for the purpose of advancing our interests and all replied that they were willing so support such a movement.
I sent out notices and placarded the show ground with large notices to the effect that a meeting would be held in Sydney at the Hotel Arcadia on 31st March 1899 at 8 pm.  The result was that a grand total of five was all that our first meeting numbered.  Subsequent meetings proved still more disastrous.  I have seen myself with an audience of one.  However, I did not give in and was ultimately rewarded.  I decided to embrace all States in my efforts.  I went to Melbourne in August 1899 and interviewed many breeders who received with pleasure the news that I wanted to form a Society.  Meetings were held.  I returned to Sydney.  I wrote out the rules as they are printed today in one afternoon and had the pleasure of seeing them passed without alteration.
At present the members list is still very small but the names will show that the Society has the support of some of the wealthiest and influential and leading men in Australia.  With so few members (40 were listed) it is a matter of congratulation that our first volume of the Herd Book contains so many entries. If those in whose interest I have undertaken this work will kindly remember that there is a good deal of it, that I do it for the love of our beautiful breed, and that I do it without fee or reward, they will, I hope, respond by prompt attention to communications sent them.  I had to send very many notices to gather the three hundred odd entries in this volume containing 84 bulls, 15 of them imported and 241 cows including 17 imported.
The contents of all the printed matter in Volume 1 in its original hand writing by Mr Hautrive is contained in a book still held in the Melbourne office of the Australian Jersey Breeders Society. Very clearly written in ink, the 40 original members are listed along with Earl Hopetown, Governor General as Patron.  The first President was Lieut.-Col. F.A. WRIGHT, M.P of Ryde NSW.  Vice President was G.T. CHIRNSIDE ESQ., Werribee, VIC.  Honorary Secretary and Treasurer:  M. HAUTRIVE, ESQ., J.P., Pitt St. Sydney.

The first journal, edited by Graeme Varrener, was published on 30 September 1969, the 70th year of the society itself. It was the brainchild of the Committee of the then State Branch of the Australian Jersey Breeders`Society. Two members of the committee were Charlie Gay (Elm Grove Jerseys, Yarram, VIctoria) and Reg Broad (Bendigo, Victoria), the latter known for five years as "Uncle Reg" through a monthly column for young farmers in the journal.
Before the journal was introduced, information had been circulated to farmers through the monthly National Livestock Bulletin, established i 1925 and covering all dairy breeds i Anstralia.

Barr B.A. Some Notes on the History of the Jersey Breed. The Breed´s Early History in Victoria, Live Stock Bulletin, Thursday, October 1, 1931
 Records of the early importation of Jerseys to Victoria are not available in an informative manner. The first record refers to the importation in 1854 of a Jersey cow selected for Mr. T.J. Sumner, by Mr. J.F. Boodle, who returned to England, and in 1854 brought out on the "Eagle" a shipment of Shorthorn cattle, draught horses and an Alderney cow, which passed to Mr. T.J. Sumner. The next record refers to the arrival in Melbourne in 1868 of seven females and a bull from the herd of Philip Dauncey, Horwood, England, but particulars of the names and breeding are not known.
Although the name of the importer is not recorded, there is some evidence to connect these with the herd of Edward Wilson, Esq.
Until 1888, Jerseys were imported into Victoria, chiefly as ship cows, which means that selected Jersey cows were placed aboard the ship before leaving England for the express purpose of supplying fresh milk to privileged passengers during the voyage to australia. On arrival at the port of disembarkation they were landed and purchased as special family cows. By these methods, the Hon T.J. Sumner, who had large interests in Sumner, Grice & Co., importers and shipping agents, founded the family of Sumner Jerseys, from which has descended many high producing families."

Bassett, Marnie: The Hentys:  Oxford University Press, 1954.[ p. 53 has the Henty brothers (Edward, Charles, James) at sea on the ship "Caroline", heading first for Brazil. They left Sussex in June 1829.
James Henty, in a letter to his father Thomas Henty back home in Sussex, writes: "All our stock are alive and well except the black greyhound I expect was kicked off the forecastle by the boatswain. Merino and Canopy are both doing well, we have taken about 8 inches from each of the cows stalls adjoining which are quite large enough for the small Alderneys and makes it much more comfortable for the horses...". The letter is dated June 18, 1829. That particular entry is dated July 2.]

Chirnside, George T. Butter strain of Jerseys bred by George T. Chirnside. [Werribee, Vic.? : G.T. Chirnside?, 1900?]
Werribee Park
An inherent appreciation of superior stock and a desire to assist in increasing the productivity of the country are set down as the main reasons for the foundation of the late G.T. Chirnside`s stud at Werribee Park, Werribee, Victoria in 1895.
Mr. Chirnside was attracted to the Jersey by her dairy qualities and rich milk, but he also attached importance to the refined features typical of the superior animal.
Since the foundation of the Australian Jersey Herd Society the Werribee herd consisted only of registered cattle.
The registered herd was founded on imported blood and none other was ever kept in the herd. The first importation, in 1899, included the females Brighton Queen, Lotus Lily, Madeira 5th, Cherry, and Starbright 4th. Wyandotte`s Satisfaction, the last imported female arrived in 1912. Belteshazzar, Plinlimmon, Machico and Warden were among the first bulls; then followed Carnation`s Fox, Lord Twylish (Lord Twylish was later sold to H.B. Watson of New Zealand) Island Butterr King, Masterpiece (sold in 1926 for 400 guineas) and War Valour. The majority of imported cows were English bred, tracing back to Island stock, and Mrr. Chirnside placed great value upon these large bodied and robust cows.
All bulls since 1900 were Island bred and Mr. Chirnside attributed much of his success to what he termed "mating the Island bulls with the English cows". He had a penchant for particular families and required a strong infusion, even if remote, of Golden Lad blood in the bulls he imported. Opinions differ concerning the mostful sire in the stud. Some old breeders contend that Carnation`s Fox (imp) whose progeny were characterised by a golden fawn colour and high test, laid the foundation for greater progress. Masterpiece (imp) is popular credited with achieving remarkable success, and this view i supported by the keen demand even now for stock of Masterpiece breeding, but Mr. Chirnside`s personal opinion was that Island Butter King (imp) was the best sire ever in service at Werribee. Mr. Chirnside took a wide view of the influence of a sire becuase on one occasion the opinion was expressed that the improvement of the Jerseys followed soon after the importation of Lord Twylish, but his reply "you have left out the great cows with which he was mated". Of the females the most prominent families were the Madeiras, Starbrights and Satisfactions.
No breeder ever placed a higher value upon the dairy qualities of the Jersey cow than G.T: Chirnside, and although he did not test his cows officially he began keeping a test record of his stock many years before the introduction of the oofficial system. This private recording was continued until his death.
Outstanding producers from Werribee which found their way to other studs include Werribeee Princess Satisfaction, Fancy Madeira, Starbright 9th, Stella Princess, Mimi, Day Starbright, Island Clementine 2nd, and Island Fancy Mr. Chirnside`s name first appears in the list of successful exhibitors at Melbourne Rroyal Show, when in 1899 Plinlimmon (imp) won first prize in the two year old class from twenty four exhibits. He continued to exhibit with great success until 1914 when he retired from the show ring. Outstanding among his champions were the scow, Starbright 5th, champion on four occasions, and the bull Lord Twylish (imp), champion from 1908 to 1913.
Werribee stock have had a profound influence upon type and production. More Werribee bred bulls are entered in the Memorial Sire`s Honour Board of the Victorian Branch than those of any other breeding. For over 40 years the stud was the recognised fountain-head of the breed in Victoria, and even today the demand persists for stock carrying these bloodlines. This choice is not a mere whimsical desire for fashionably bred animals, but is due to the proven fact that the Werribee bred stock have displayed exceptional merit in upholding those type and production qualities which have gained so much favour for the Jersey. Breeding to Mr. Chirnside was a contribution to the industry as well as a hobby.
The best testimony to his work as a breeder and the high personal regard in which he was held by his fellow breeders was the demonstrative reception accorded to him at the reduction sale on December 6, 1926, when a cataloque of 46 animals brought 4120 guieneas, 32 females averaged 89 guineas; 10 exceeded 100 guineas; and 14 bulls, including claves, averaged 91 guineas.
The stud has been transferred in 1921 to Mooroolbark Park, Lilydale, where it was carried on until 1940 when, after the death of Mr. Chirnside, the final dispersal took place.
Among Mr. Chirnside`s personal attributes was a charitable disposition frequently expressed in the moderate prices he placed upon stock for private sale; a willingness to assist the young breeder, and his liberality to repatriated soldiers after the Great War.
He was a Vice President of the Society from its inception, and Patron of Victorian Branch from its formation until his death in May 1940.

Gorrie, Alfred  Commonwealth Standard Jersey herd Book. 2 Vol.1914-1916. A privately owned Jersey Herd Book.
In 1914 Mr. Alfred Gorrie caused a stir in the Australian Jersey world by publishing a privately owned Jersey Herd Book under the title of the Commonwealth Standard Jersey herd Book. It was an ambitious venture, more an Advanced Register than a Herd Book; all pedigrees were printed in extended form and Mr. Gorrie accepted for registration only those animals that conformed to a standard that he had laid down. The Council of the Australian society was very concerned at the apperance of this publication and Mr. Gorrie`s efforts to further it brought about a split in the Queensland Society. The second and last edition of the Commonwealth Standard Jersey herd Book  was published in 1916 but soon after that opposition to it was soo strongly manifested that Mr. Gorrie abandoned the Venture.

King´s Vale. Centenary Sale of "King´s Vale" and "King´s View" Jerseys, Thursday, 6th March,
1986. It doesn`t take much milking of the history books to find the Anderson family of Gippsland is legendary in dairy circles.
The family will consolidate the legend this year when its Jersey stud, first established in 1886, celebrates exhibiting at the Royal Melbourne Show 100 years on.
The stud`s story includes connections with governors , cows shipped from British Islands and five generations later, Andersons still breeding and milking cows under the original stud prefix Kings Vale.
The innovator was John Anderson. He set sail from famineridden Ireland on board the James T. Ford with his newly married wife Margaret, arriving in Australia on May 2, 1851.
It is said the James T`s final stopover was Alderney, a British owned island off the French coast, where the ship`s four-legged milk suppliers were collected.
Winsome Anderson, the family historian and wife of John`s now deceased great grandson, Bert, said the cows were to form the origins of Australia`s current Jersey herd.
"Hear say says that John also supplied milk and butter to the governor and we still have the Crown stamp they used on the butter," said Winsome.
"We think that`s where the King`s part of the King`s Vale stud came from."

Alfred Gorrie of Brisbane was organising the Queensland Dairy Herd Book society with the object of establishing a stud book for the registration of all breeds of dairy cattle. The first council of this Society consisted of Hon. A.J. Thynne, M.L.C., President and Messrs J.A.W. Kibble, John Stewart, C.F. Siemon, Isaac Mayne, William Thorne and Alfred Gorrie.
The Jersey section of the first volume of this Queensland book, which was published in 1900, records the pedigrees of 34 bulls and 69 cows. The second volume was published in 1904 by which time Messrs A.H. McShane , W.R. Robinson and D.C. Pryce had been added to the committee. This contained the pedigrees of 36 males and 89 females. The last volume to be published by the Society was issued in 1907. It recorded the pedigree of 48 males and 126 females.

William Padbury and his Jersey cattle. [J.S. Battye´s Cyclopedia of Western Australia, 1912-13.]
The name of William Padbury, whose Garden Hill stud was established at Guildford, Western Australia, a few miles from the City of Perth, in 1908 ranks amongst the foremost of both Western Australian and Commonwealth breeders of Jerseys.
Because of their beautiful appearance, their docility and productive capabilities, Jersey claimed the admiration of Mr. Padbury in 1908, when he purchased the imported cow Dairy Maid, togeter with the four year old Pretty Queen, and a two year old bull Optician from Dairy Maid. Padbury began breeding Jerseys as a diversion from his many commercial interests, not then realising that it would later become a business proposition.
In 1909 Mr Padbury, went to England, and contacted the then President of the Royal Jersey Herd Society of England, Mr. Miller-Hallett. At Mr. Halllet`s suggested Mr. Padbury visited the Channel Islands and inspected most of the Channel Islands herds. He was so impressed that he selected the bull Campanile`s Noble and six heifers of the Fondant and Lady Mint families, mated to independent sires.
The dairying industry in Western Australia was in its infancy, but Mr. Padbury saw that the time would come when this industry would be taken up in earnest.
With his imported stock and their progeny he supplied the foundation of most of the well known herds in Western Australia, and this consequently gave impetus to the dairying industry.
Mr. Padbury was a constant exhibitor at the Perth Royal Show and he was always to be found at country shows in Western Australia. He exhibited many times at the Sydney Royal Show, and once at the Melbourne Royal. The much coveted Governor`s cup offered annually at the Perth Royal for the most successful exhibitor in the Stud Stock Section was won by Mr. Padbury eight times in ten years and he was runner up in the other two years of that period. His cattle exhibits helped considerable in this meritorious performance.
In June, 1941, he sold his Garden Hill property, including his Jersey Herd, to live in retirement in the suburb of Perth, but still took a very active interest in the affairs of the Society, particularly the Western Australian Branch, of which he was President, an office he held for twenty-seven years. Mr. Padbury was the prime mower in forming the Western Australian Branch and was appointed an Honorary Life Member of the Society in 1936.

Kameruka Estate
"Preserving rural heritage - Keva Gocher The National Library is helping communities preserve their past through the National Community Heritage Grants scheme, with some 217 groups nationally sharing 160 thousand dollars to preserve records of significance. One of these groups is in southern New South Wales, and they've just been given the most extraordinary collection of documents. The leather bound, gold embossed handwritten ledgers fill 25 metres of shelving and cover a century of farm records, accounts, and letters the workings of an English-style estate that has a place in the nation's history. Kameruka Estate in the Bega Valley has been home to thousands of families. It had an international reputation in dairying and still houses Australia's oldest
jersey stud. It's 2 dairies now produce more than their 16 dairies did a
century ago. Frank Foster is the latest in the Tooth-Foster brewing family to run the Kameruka estate. He's given the nation the priceless estate records that paint a picture of a world very different from today. Frank Foster: Kameruka Estate, Bega".
