SA GUERNSEY
Cattle Breeders' Society


ORIGIN

The unique content and quality of Guernsey milk has been recognized for centuries. The purebred Guernsey traces its ancestry back more than 1 000 years to the Island of Guernsey in the English

Channel off the coast of France. There patient monks systematically crossed two French cattle breeds, the Froment du Leon and the Norman Brindle, to create the Guernsey. Selected at all times mainly for the golden-coloured rich milk its cows produce. As early as 1789, measures to restrict the importation of any other cattle to the Island of Guernsey were used to keep the Guernsey breed pure and to maintain the high quality of the golden milk. Compulsory registration of all cattle on the island began in 1878.

It is not known when the first Guernseys were brought to South Africa. It is generally assumed that they began to arrive from the beginning of this century, but it was only after the late Captain E. Kelly-Paterson, of Scboombee near Middelburg in the Eastern Cape Province, imported a parcel of 18 females and three bulls in 1923 that the breed began to receive significant attention in South Africa. Another pioneer who made his mark on the development of the breed was Mr Charlie Arnold of Cradock.

The first registration in the South African Stud Book was made in 1926, and four years later the Guernsey Cattle Breeders’ Society of South Africa was founded. Since then the name has changed to the S.A. Guernsey Cattle Breeders’ Society.

DISTRIBUTION

The Guernsey is noted for its excellent adaptability to extremes of climate and environment. It has been bred over many years to adapt to the big variety of grazing conditions. From grazing in grasslands or rye grass, kikuyu and clovers, to our harsh semi desert land of the Karoo regions, where they graze on the scrub bushes that grow in this area. No matter in which environment S A Guernseys find themselves, they produce excellent quality milk with a high butter fat and protein which is so sought after. The members are today spread throughout the country, with the main concentration of animals located in the Eastern and Southern Cape.

CHARACTERISTICS

The Guernsey is the no fuss cow with tremendous potential. The colour of the Guernsey varies from yellow to reddish-brown with white patches. The Guernsey cow has a finely tuned temperament. She is alert and wide-awake but not nervous or irritable. Physically she has good dairy conformation and presents the visual

impression of a plain animal bred for utility rather than good looks. She has an attractive carriage with a graceful walk, a strong back, broad loin, wide rump and deep barrel, and she carries a capacious, strongly attached udder extending well forward, with the quarters evenly balanced and symmetrical. Heifers generally come into milk at about two years of age. The average weaning weight of heifers and bull calves is 75 kg. The Guernsey bull has an attractive individuality, revealing ample vigour and masculinity. It has smooth-blending shoulders showing good refinement, strength and even contour.


* Guernseys are efficient converters of feed to product.
* Guernseys reach reproductive maturity at an early age and can calve at 22 months of age. This   
   provides an early return on investment. Guernseys produce calves big at birth, which are easy to
   rear.  Guernseys are well known for having the minimum of calving complications.

Guernseys are adaptable to all climates and management systems. They are docile and have an ideal Dairy Temperament.
As proven by Guernseys all over the  United  States, this cow has flourished in southern, northern, hot and cold climates. Her fawn and white coat enhances her heat tolerance and reduces heat stress, which adds to her ability to maintain production levels anywhere. 
Guernseys are capable of High Milk Flow.
Guernseys are large framed. They reached a weight of about 450kg at 13-14 months

* Fully mature bulls weigh about 750 kg and cows 500 kg.

GUERNSEY MILK

GUERNSEY MILK - AN INTERESTING STORY

Guernseys produce high component milk of a deep yellow colour with distinctive mouth-feel and flavour. This colour is remarkable in other products such as butter, cream, cheese and yoghurt.

Guernsey milk contains very high levels of the protein Beta Casein A2 as opposed to the predominance of the protein Beta Casein A1 that is present in the milk of other dairy breeds. 96% of Guernsey cows carry the Beta Casein A2 gene.

There is a growing conviction amongst some scientists that anecdotal evidence suggesting that A1 milk may have a link to illnesses such as type-one diabetes, heart disease, autism and schizophrenia should be further investigated.

It is noteworthy that New Zealand’s second largest dairy co-operative, Westland Milk Products, is considering converting to purely A2 herds. Westland Chief Executive Scott Eglinton is reported as saying that meetings of the 330 farmer shareholders had expressed "neutral to positive" support, but the possible economic impact of making the change had yet to be fully considered.

Interestingly Westland has stated that it does not intend to go into the science of the A1/A2 question nor enter the argument about whether A2 milk is better than A1 milk.

Professor Keith Woodford of Lincoln University, NZ, said it was a "huge step forward.” “The fact that Westland has decided to move to A2 is a clear sign that A2 is going to be mainstream. Others will soon start to follow, both here and overseas”, he said.

Professor Woodford’s book ‘Devil in the Milk’ was published in 2007 by Craig Potton Publishing (ISBN 978-1-877333-70-5). Described as ‘Groundbreaking’, the book has raised eyebrows across the milk industry and in the area of medical and nutritional research.

The New Zealand Food Safety Authority’s (NZFSA) expert opinion that milk, whether A1 or A2, remains safe to drink has not changed after careful consideration of Woodford’s book.

“The book provides no evidence that would lead us to change our opinion that milk is anything but safe,” says Dr Donald Campbell, NZFSA Principal Adviser (Public Health). “The book notes A1 milk has been a staple food in many parts of the world for more than 5000 years and correctly points out the differing views on the possible health effects of its consumption. We judge that there is no substantial data presented by Professor Woodford that would lead us to believe that A1 milk is any more or less of a risk than A2 milk.

“It is our belief that there is no strong evidence of a link between A1 milk and human illness. We agree that it is possible that more peer reviewed research may help clarify the controversy which has been circulating for more than ten years.” (preceding 3 paras quoted from NZFSA website)


GENOMIC ASSISTED EVALUATIONS POSSIBLE BY 2010

“The most profound and exciting development in genetic assessment of our cattle. Now we have a technology that will help us to separate Nature from Nurture.” said WGCF Secretary Bill Luff of the possibility that the Guernsey breed may have Genomic Assisted Evaluations by the year 2010.

It is expected that the first official genomic assisted PTAs will be available for the Holstein breed from USDA-ARS (United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service) in January 2009.

It all started back in 2004 with a $50,000,000 international project to sequence the bovine genome. “The Bovine Haplotype Map Project involved the Guernsey breed,” said Mr. Luff, “In the first phase we learned about the differences between breeds and in particular that the Guernsey’s relationship to other European breeds is rather distant. Now the shift is towards looking at traits of economic importance.”

Sequencing is performed by extracting DNA from blood or semen samples taken from cows or bulls. The programme uses a DNA chip developed by Illumina of San Diego, California,

USDA-ARS Bovine Functional Genomics Laboratory and other research partners. The chip reads approx. 50,000 single neucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) evenly distributed across all 30 bovine chromosomes. The science is moving very fast. A 200,000 SNP chip is now being developed and should be ready some time in 2009.

“This new science will be of inestimable value to all cattle breeders,” said Mr. Luff. “We will be able to predict the genetic merit of a bull calf AT BIRTH with a reliability equal to that of a Young Sire with 8-12 daughters. We will be able to use the same technology with females. This will help us to be much more accurate with selection procedures and ultimately give more confidence to farmers, particularly in the use of young sires.

On a recent visit to USA, Mr Luff was able to complete negotiations to fund a collaborative project with USDA to initiate the necessary research for genomic evaluations for the Guernsey breed. “There are many more hurdles to cross,” he said, “but we are on the way and hope to have genomic assisted evaluations by January 2010.”

Genomic evaluations will be available for all recorded production and type traits. The new genomic assisted evaluations will combine quantitative PTAs with genomic data.

All animals inherit one half of their genes from each parent, BUT which half? Up to now this has not been known, as is clearly demonstrated by the very different genetic evaluations/performance of full brothers/sisters and of clones. “Now we will be able to predict which of two full brothers will be the best BEFORE he is used.” Said Mr. Luff.

Genomic evaluation will be very important for those traits that are expensive or difficult to assess. Health traits, such as mastitis and other disease resistance, as well as fertility and longevity feature in this category. HOWEVER, accuracy will depend on farmers keeping very good data sets.

In the past ‘preferential treatment’ of individual animals may have been used to ‘buck the system’ resulting in misleading indices. Now it will be very much easier to identify where this is happening by using a technology that helps to separate Nature from Nurture.

Does this ‘Black Box’ technology mean that we will no longer need to milk record our cows and progeny test our bulls? “Definitely not,” said Mr. Luff. “Milk recording and the recording of every incident in a cow’s life now becomes even more important if we want to make full use of this new technology.” We will continue our present assessment systems for cows and bulls and combine them with genomic data.

Genetic Trends of the Guernsey Breed

Traits that qualify for breeding value estimation, is Milk, Butterfat and Protein Yields, as well as Somatic Cell Score. Breeding values for Butterfat and Protein Percentages are calculated as indices, based on the yield breeding values. South Africa also participate in international evaluations, done by INTERBULL in Sweden, to supply the dairy industry with international breeding values (MACE) for foreign sires that do not yet have daughters in our country. These MACE breeding values are directly comparable with our national breeding values and are available for all the production traits of the Guernsey breed. In the following figures, the genetic trends for the different traits of the Guernsey breed are indicated. These graphs represent the average change over the first three lactations of measured cows per year of birth.

Figure 1 Genetic trend for Milk Yield of the Guernsey Breed

Figure 2 Genetic trends in Butterfat and Protein Yields of the Guernsey Breed

Figure 3 : Genetic trends for Butterfat and Protein Percentages of the Guernsey Breed

Milk from the Guernsey Breed has been known to have different characteristic than the other breeds for sometime. This was confirmed in 1991, when research showed that the beta casein in milk of Guernseys was 96% of the A2 allege. Research done in New Zealand by dr. R Elliot since 1997, now positively proofed that the Guernsey Breed is the only one of the six major international dairy Breeds that carries 95+% of their Beta casein as the A2 allege. The remainder carry it at between 33% and 50% with some carrying a lot of the B allege. These studies proofed Guernsey milk a safe and healthy drinking milk especially to susceptible people and children in whom the beta casein alleges A1 and B could cause the formation of betacaso-morphins which were starting to be linked with heart disease, Type 1 diabetes, autism and several other problems of children. The Guernsey cow is known for producing high-butterfat, high-protein milk with a high concentration

of beta-carotene that gives that extra special taste. Guernsey milk is a natural for wholesome, tasty, healthy products that please the discriminating customer. These products are marketed for a substantial premium, because of the uniqueness, quality and taste. The products, which can be manufactured from Golden Guernsey milk, are almost endless. Most will retain the unique Golden Guernsey colour, flavour and nutritional values even after processing. Guernsey cheese for example is unequalled for its unique qualities.

A2 MILK a opportunity for Guernsey Breeders

F du Toit, ARC-LBD, Port Elizabeth

WHAT IS A2

Protein (casein) in milk is divided in three types, namely alpha, beta and kappa. It exists in different ratios in milk, depending on the genetic composition of the cow that produces it.

Beta casein on its turn is subdivided in A1 and A2. Cows can produce either or both of the beta casein proteins. They can be A1/A1, A1/A2 or A2/A2

RESEARCH

Comparative studies done in the US showed that the Guernsey Breed is the only one of the six major Dairy Breeds that carry 95%+ of their Beta casein as the A2 allele (A2/A2). The other breeds frequencies are between 33% and 50%. This is the beta casein that is also found in other mammals, including humans, goats, sheep and the other main bovine sub-species Bos Indicus.

Sixteen years of authoritative studies and research done by Professor Robert B. Elliott and Dr Murray Laugesen from New Zealand found, that in susceptible people (people with immune deficiencies), the beta casein allele A1 could be a cause of diabetes, heart disease, autism, schizophrenia and several other problems of children. They claimed that the protein beta casein A2 is benign in this respect.

Alleviation of health problems

We have cases reported to us of children having problems which have been alleviated when transferred to Guernsey milk(see letter attached). We see A2 milk to be an alternative to the main drinking milk supply. It is known that a number of people, especially children, are effected by casein, but when they change to sheep or goat’s milk their problems appear to be alleviated. Gluten can have similar effects as casein in some cases. Sufferers, in this case, use maize, rye or rice as the alternative.

Parents who have children who suffer from lactose intolerance have absolutely a great need and demand for A2 milk. A2 milk will have all the benefits of cow’s milk, including the folate(folic acid) which is very low in goat’s milk in particular. Some people attended the Dairy Expo and Cheese Festival held at Bien Donné mention that they are willing to drive quite a distance to get hold of A2 milk.

Guernsey A2 milk, along with the high level of beta carotene in the milk fat which gives the milk its colour and special taste, would prove its unique qualities as a drinking milk.

Conclusion

A2 milk could increase demand for Guernsey milk and products and even create a need for new Guernsey herds. Guernsey farmers could reap a benefit from sales to a health conscious public. The sale of A2 milk began in Australia and New Zealand, in 2003 but it was not until recently that the product hit the headlines with the publication of a book titled “Devil in the milk” by Professor Keith Woodford, of Lincoln University.

Testomony LETTER:

I have two children who were both lactose intolerant from birth, and were breastfed for the first year of their lives. My daughter, who is now three years old, outgrew the lactose intolerance when she was 18 months old. Although she is not a big milk drinker, she loves yoghurt, ice cream and does have milk with her cereal, but I find that when she has too much dairy she gets sinus problems, as do I and my husband.

My son is now 15 months old and is still lactose intolerant, so I am still breastfeeding, however he also loves yoghurt. and ice cream, and when he does have these he gets a runny tummy and also tends to get a very runny nose.

In September this year we spent ten days at my mother who lives in the Karoo town of Prince Albert. They have a local dairy, Gay’s Dairy, which produces Guernsey milk. Well the yoghurt is delicious! and when we all made a habit of eating plenty of yoghurt. I remember thinking “We’ll worry about the runny noses and tummies later!” Well to my surprise we were all fine, there were no signs of blocked noses or upset tummies.

Gay (the owner of the Guernsey Dairy) then explained that many people who suffer dairy allergies or intolerance tend to fair better on Guernsey milk as it has a protein that is easily digestible by human beings

Anyway we ate dairy produce to our hearts delight, and made it my mission to search for a Guernsey Dairy once I returned to Johannesburg.

I managed to find a Guernsey Dairy in Sundra, however their milk is sold to a National Dairy who then mixes the Guernsey milk with other milk. This was disappointing news.

I look forward to the day when pure Guernsey milk is sold from the local supermarket. And I urge other mothers who have children that are lactose intolerant to try the Guernsey milk, as they may be pleasantly surprised.

Yours sincerely

PRODUCTION

For the past three decades breeders, classifiers and judges have emphasised the need of the Guernsey to meet the modern challenge of profitable production. For this reason milk recording has been encouraged and a programme for testing young sires is applied. As a result, great strides have been made in developing and promoting an appreciation of the type of traits that indicate production, with a gradual shift away from minor show points of no economic value. 

S A Guernsey is part of the International Global Breeding Plan that is totally based on Young Sires.

History of genetic evaluation of the Guernsey breed in South Africa
(Bernice E Mostert & Dr HE Theron ARC-AII)

Guernsey sires were first evaluated through progeny groups, using data recorded by the National Livestock Improvement Scheme. This led to the utilization of contemporary comparison methods to estimate the breeding values of sires. Guernsey animals received breeding values from BLUP (Best Linear Unbiased Prediction) methodology for the first time in 1987, when breeding values were estimated, using a Sire Model. In 1992 the Animal Model was fitted to dairy records to estimate breeding values in single trait analyses. Since 2001 a multitrait analysis was developed for the Guernsey breed, where 305-day milk, butterfat and protein yields were evaluated together in order to utilize the genetic correlations between the traits to estimate breeding values even more accurately. Genetic groups were also incorporated into the Guernsey pedigree in order to qualify for participation in INTERBULL runs. Data of the South African Guernsey breed was accepted by INTERBULL in 2001 for the routine estimation of MACE breeding values of AI sires.

BREEDING PROGRAMME SUCCESS

The World Guernsey Cattle Federation is attempting to co-ordinate a Global breeding programme for Guernseys in order to preserve variation and avoid genetic drift and inbreeding while improving production, efficiency and health traits. A pilot programme using the Island and UK populations is proving very successful. All cattle are compared with the use of a breed specific index, the Guernsey Merit Index (GMI), which is weighted to achieve the agreed objectives of breeders.

The Guernsey Global Breeding Programme uses teams of young bulls selected on merit index and used sparingly and at random in order to spread the genetics of the highest merit cows across the breed. The following table shows progress in Predicted Transmitting Ability (PTA) from the inception of the scheme in 2002. Figures in red are Parent Averages.

Bill Luff, Secretary of the World Guernsey Cattle Federation, visited South Africa last year when he encouraged SA Guernsey breeders to become part of the Global Breeding Programme. “I would like to see South African breeders adopting the principles of GGBP.” he said. “The best way to improve a small population breed is to use young bulls from your best cows, chosen primarily by breeding value, sparingly and at random across the whole population. WGCF can help you to find the best international young sires to create the ties between populations necessary to facilitate international evaluations.“

BLUP analysis of the Guernsey Breed

Completed first lactation records since the 1978 test year are used to estimate BLUP breeding values. In the November 2002 run data of 4 162 registered cows and 4 888 grade cows were included. This is the progeny of 426 sires measured in 159 herds. Because parents supply information for the estimation of breeding values of progeny, and vice versa, pedigrees as far back as possible are included in the analysis. Heifers and young bulls are also included to get predictions based on mid-parent breeding values. The pedigree file therefore consisted of 17 656 animals for which 305-day milk, butterfat and protein yield breeding values were estimated and breeding values for butterfat and protein percentages were constructed.

SA Guernsey by SA Kaasfees

Die Guernsey ras was ook hierdie jaar by die SA Kaasfees, wat vanaf 25 – 28 April 2008 te Bien Donne, tussen Franschoek en Stellenbosch gehou is, verteenwoordig. Besoekers het na die Melkfabriek, soos die gedeelte waar die Suiwelrasse uitgestal het, gestroom. Baie vrae is gevra en beantwoord. Die stadsjapies het goed kennis gemaak met ons wonderlike goue ras. Die kinders het dit so geniet om aan die mak bulletjie en versie te kon vat. 'n Reuse ding vir 'n stads kind.

Die Guernsey stalletjie is gebou deur Johan van Dyk, Chrizanne Fourie en Reuben Kotze. Hulle het ‘n pragtige stalletjie bymekaar gesit. Ons sê vir hulle baie, baie dankie vir hierdie groot poging.
