She is medium in size, weighing about 1,200 pounds in maturity. Her milk has a golden color due to a high content of beta carotene, and also contains higher amounts of butterfat and protein.
The Guernsey originated from the Isle of Guernsey, a tiny island in the English Channel.
Since the 1950s, Golden Guernsey trademark milk has been sold in the U.S. and Canada as a premium product.
