Welcome to the website of the Wisconsin Jersey Breeders Association. Our organization is a group of people who have a common interest in Registered Jersey cattle.

Our members are a part of the state's leading agriculture industry, with dairy accounting for nearly half - $45.6 billion - of the state's annual receipts from agriculture.

Wisconsin is the cheese capital of the nation. In 2018, it produced more cheese than any other state, with a whopping 26% of domestic cheese production. As well, cheese makers from America's Dairyland produce more varieties, types and styles of cheeses (600 in all) than any other state. Our members help with this effort as the rich, high-protein milk from their Jersey cows produces 20-25% more cheese than average milk.
