Jersey Cattle in Switzerland
Bernhard Bøggild, a Danish dairyman, visited in 1885 several
European countries, among others Switzerland. On the farm Langrüthi,
belonging to G. H. Page, he found a small herd of Jersey cows. G.H. Page
had with great expenses imported 20 heifers and two bulls.
In 1856, an American named Gail Borden invented sweetened condensed
milk. Ten years later, the two American brothers Page settled down in Switzerland
to establish a Company in Cham under the name of "Anglo-Swiss
Condensed Milk Company" . A new industry was born in Europe. By the early
1880s, the Anglo-Swiss company was churning out 25 million cans of milk
Not only English landlords but also leading business men in the flourishing dairy industry were becoming interested in the Jersey breed in the turn of the century.
