The American Kerry Cattle Society
The Kerry Cow - Ireland's Native Dairy Breed


The American Kerry Cattle Society welcomes you to our website. We are a group of dedicated breeders of purebred, registered Kerry Cattle. All of our animals are direct, recorded descendants of Kerry Cattle imported into Canada in the 1970's. We are part of a larger scheme to conserve Kerry Cattle worldwide. While our organization was formally organized this year, it ends a 7-year strategic plan to conserve our cattle and establish a stabilized, pure line of registered cattle.
