Can some one explain what a mini jersey is? I thought it was a Dexter crossed with a jersey. But my mother says it's just a small jersey is this true?

Yes, you are right. They are the breeds crossed with Dexture, Lowline Angus, Galloway, possibly even Zebu etc to get a better yield out of the cows. And for getting the better quality and quantity of milk this kind of breeds are crossed. When breeding the miniature Jerseys one must consider that not all the calves produced will remain in the miniature size ranges, even if two miniatures are bred together.
