Avi-Lanche Jerseys and D&E Jerseys

The Registered Jersey dairy herd is owned by the Donald S. Sherman Family and Richard and Jennifer Avila and their daughters, Sidney and Caitlin.

The herd was established by Jennifer's father, the late Donnie Sherman, in Hilmar, CA, in 1960. The herd was moved to Dalhart, TX, in 2007 to supply milk for the Hilmar Cheese Company, which expanded operations to Dalhart.

Today, the combined Avi-Lanche Jerseys (established by the Avilas) and D&E Jerseys herd is 2,000 milking cows and 2,000 replacement heifers. Click here to learn more about the dairy.
