Welcome to 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 24-stall rotary 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 eight full-time employees.

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 Carolina by The State newspaper.

Bush River Jerseys was featured in the Jersey Journal's Niche Market series in October 2007. CLICK HERE to read more.
