Welcome to Guernsey NZ

Welcome to the website of Guernsey NZ - The New Zealand Guernsey Cattle Breeders Association! We are the driving force behind the Guernsey breed of cattle in New Zealand.

The Guernsey is a breed of dairy cattle developed on the Island of Guernsey from cattle brought to the island by monks from France about 980 A.D. The Guernsey breed has many desirable attributes.

This website contains resources for those interested in the Guernsey breed. Guernseys are all around ideal dairy cows which makes them great for small farms and lifestyle blocks, as well as in commercial dairy herds.

We have also pieced together the history of the Guernsey breed both overseas and within New Zealand.
