Do you know the difference between the different cows that are available? When comparing the two, you will see that the Holstein Cow is going to be larger as compared to the Jersey Cow. In fact, the Jersey Cow will weigh about 400 kg normally but the Holstein Cow is going to be more than 500 kg. Even with the way that they would produce milk, you can expect that the Holstein cow will definitely produce more milk during their lifetime.

Another thing that you should realize is that their names have originated from the place where they were found. Their colors are also different. The Holstein Cow is black and white while the Jersey Cow is color red.
