Bush River online.
We have never been prouder to be involved in the Jersey business. Our
cow is at last being recognized by the entire dairy industry for something we have always
known: her superior efficiency makes her potential for
profitability almost endless.
Bush River Jerseys is part of a diversified farming operation,
located on a continuous, 652-acre tract of land in Newberry, South Carolina.
In addition to the 500-head of Registered Jerseys, the farm
includes a turkey operation, a cow-calf beef herd and row crops.
We are milking the herd in a state-of-the-art
parlor. We recently built a 450-stall freestall barn and the cattle
were moved in August 2004.
Bush River is a family-owned operation which was started by Dr.
J. J. "Doc" Malnati and is currently owned and managed by
Doc's grandson, Richard A. Doran, Jr. The day-to-day tasks of the entire farming operation are completed by
family with BRJ Bomber Pitino Eilene X-17. In front are Marilyn
and Doc Malnati. At the halter is Joan Malnati. Rick and R.J.
stand behind "Eilene."
In 2006, Bush River was rated the number
one tourist attraction in the county by the
Newberry Observer and the number two attraction in all of South
The State newspaper.
Bush River Jerseys was featured in the
Jersey Journal's Niche Market series in October 2007.
