    The Jamaica Hope is a dairy breed, small in size and producing an average of 12 litres of milk per day. The Jamaica Red, Jamaica Brahman and Jamaica Black are beef cattle. Dr. Cattle Breeds - Red Poll Red Poll History Red Poll cattle were developed as a dual-purpose breed in their native counties in England. Breeders sought a type that would fatten readily rather than be of extreme size. A good milk flow was also considered important in selecting breeding stock in the development of the breed in its native land.

The Jamaica Hope cattle are a dairy cattle breed originating from Hope Farm in Jamaica. They are also known as Jersey-Zebu or Montgomery-Jersey, and primarily raised for milk production.

Breeding for the animals started inand there was an attempt to develop an animal that was adjusted to the climate of the island.

Apart from the Taylor breed of India, which was evolved a century ago as an interbreeding population of high producing crossbred cattle (Henderson, ), and the newly developed Australian Milking Zebu (Hayman, ), the only other tropical dairy breed that has been successfully produced from a Bos taurus X Bos indicus crossbred foundation is the Jamaica Hope.

This breed, which is supported. This study is the first comprehensive estimation of breed parameters for the Jamaica Hope breed of dairy cattle. It has shown that the breed has considerable potential for milk production undser good husbendry in a tropical by: 8.

The development of the Jamaica Hope breed of dairy cattle for milk production under tropical conditions has been described by Lecky (, ).

However, no comprehensive study of the performance of these cattle has been undertaken since their elevation to breed status in ; the only studies of genetic phenotypic parametersCited by: 8.

Abstract. Performance of Jamaica Hope cattle, developed in Jamaica from a crossbred foundation containing about 80% Jersey, 15% Sahiwal, and 5% Holstein breeding, was evaluated.

There were 8, lactation records for to of Jamaica Hope and other cows from 28 herds for estimates of environmental by: The Hope Farm began, into develop a breed of dairy cattle adapted to the climate of the island.

The exact breeds used over the next several years to develop the Jamaica Hope is a complex mix as over twelve breed were tried. However, the current breed is approximately 80% Jersey, 15% zebu Development of the Jamaica Hope Breed of dairy cattle.

Experimentation in breeding dairy cattle for the tropics began in Jamaica at Hope Farm in with local cattle, temperate dairy breeds and the infusion of the Sahiwal (Zebu) breed. The research results, which also influenced farmers’ operations, indicated the File Size: KB.

Jamaica Dairy Development Board-Ja Hope Composition of the Breed The Jamaica Hope cattle is derived from crossbred foundation tracing back to The breed composed of Jersey (); Sahiwal ()and Friesian () mix was declared in Selected as a distinct breed inthe Jamaica Red Poll has its origin in imported British Red Poll Bulls which were used to upgrade native creole and Zebu cows.

This has produced a tropical animal which combines the beef qualities of European stock with the hardiness of the Zebu. The Jamaica Red Poll has remained the predominant breed for beef cattle. This study is the first comprehensive estimation of breed parameters for the Jamaica Hope breed of dairy cattle.

It has shown that the breed has considerable potential for milk production under good husbandry in a tropical environment. Improvements in reproductive performance may be achieved, Cited by: 8.

Experimentation in breeding dairy cattle for the tropics began in Jamaica at Hope Farm in with local cattle, temperate dairy breeds and the infusion of the Sahiwal (Zebu) breed. Jamaica Brahman, Jamaica Hope, Jamaica Red Poll and Jamaica Black. Even the world-class Jamaica Hope breed of cattle was at risk.

The few dairy farms and cattle that exist today represent a mere fraction of what the industry was like in its heyday. More than 50 years ago, Jamaican Scientist Thomas Lecky developed the Jamaica Hope, the last breed of tropical dairy cattle.

A combination of the British Jersey cow (small and light feeding), the Holstein (heavy milk producers) and the Indian Sahiwal breed (disease resistant and adapted to the tropics) the Hope produces an average 12 litres of milk a day, 3 times that produced by other cattle on.

Jamaica Hope cattle is a dairy breed that originates from Hope. Farm in Jamaica. Breeding of this type of cattle started in It was actually an attempt to develop a breed that can adjust to. There were estimated to be Jamaica Hope ♀♀ in 59 herds in The data used in this study were for lactations of ♀♀ for at Bodies Research Station, lactation records for in 6 private herds, and 1-yr records () for cows in 34 herds.

Age at 1st calving, calving interval, day milk yield and yield per day of calving interval and per day Cited by: 8. The development local cattle breeds not only revolutionised dairy farming in Jamaica, but also made it possible for hillside farmers to own cattle and produce milk and beef.

The preservation of the breed is important as the Hope, the Jamaica Red, the Jamaica Black and the Jamaica Brahman are specially developed for the tropics. Development of the Jamaica Hope breed of dairy cattle. DAIRY CATTLE, BREEDS (ANIMALS), LAIT, AMELIORATION DES ANIMAUX, BOVIN LAITIER.

The Jamaica Red was developed from Red Poll cattle with limited amounts of zebu breeding introduced to increase the adaptation of the breed to the climate. The original Red Poll cattle were imported from England during the late 19th century and were used to improve the milk production of the native cattle.

Today, the Jersey breed is the second largest breed of dairy cattle in the world. On Jersey itself there are fewer than Jerseys in total with nearly of these being adult milking cows. The purity of the breed on the island is maintained by a strict ban on imports. This ban.

Meanwhile, the Jamaica Hope, which is also under the microscope, is the only dairy breed in the group of four and is actually a dual-purpose animal (beef and milk) which evolved primarily from the colonial Jersey cows, the Indian draft cows of the Sahiwal breed and a tinge of the Holstein bloodline to enhance its milk-producing capacity.The Hope Farm began, into develop a breed of dairy cattle adapted to the climate of the island.

The exact breeds used over the next several years to develop the Jamaica Hope is a complex mix as over twelve breed were tried.

Have you ever looked at a dairy cow and wondered about the history of the breed? This new series from Michigan State University Extension will explore the history of the seven major breeds of dairy cattle in the U.S. First in the series is the Holstein.
