Anything dairy-related


Hi, Cow Fans

For the next few days we will be discussing the Holstein Cow.

This breed is one of the oldest, of either beef or dairy animals in America.  It had its beginnings in the Netherlands, mainly in the North-East province, Friesland, and is unquestionably the same which made the Hollanders famous throughout the civilized world more than a thousand years ago.  Even back during the flourishing days of the old Roman Empire, large, black and white oxen, and cheese were continually being sent from the regions now known as the Netherlands.  A race of cattle with many of the present characteristics of the Holstein-Friesians doubtless were being maintained practically pure fully 20000 years ago and Holland has remained famous as a dairy centre during the centuries since. 

Till tomorrow,
