Cattle Breeds

The first cattle were domesticated at least 10,000 years ago, and they are raised as for meat (beef and veal), dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, and as draft animals (pulling carts, plows and the like). Also they are raised to produce leather and their manure is used for fertilizer. Cattle were the first livestock animal to have a fully mapped genome and there is an estimated 1.3 billion cattle in the world today.

Cattle raised for human consumption are called "beef cattle". Within the beef cattle industry in parts of the United States, the term "beef" (plural "beeves") is still used in its archaic sense to refer to an animal of either sex. Cows of certain breeds that are kept for the milk they give are called "dairy cows" or "milking cows". Most young male offspring of dairy cows are sold for veal, and may be referred to as veal calves.

About American Angus CattleAmerican Angus

Sir George Macpherson-Grant brought four Angus bulls, without any cows, to Victoria, Kansas On 17 May 1873. They were the first Angus cattle to come to America. Angus cattle are hornless and were considered odd at the time in the US where most cattle were Shorthorns and Longhorns. However, ranchers noticed the good qualities of the bulls and afterwards, many more cattle of both sexes were imported.

On 21 November 1883, the American Angus Association was founded in Chicago, Illinois. The first herd book was published on Marc ...

Australian Lowline cattle are a group of specially bred Angus cattle from Australia.

In 1974, a special research project was commenced at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales utilizing the Angus herd of the prize-winning Trangie Stud; this had been a ‘closed’ herd (meaning, no new blood had been introduced) since 1964. The project involved breeding animals for size, selecting the largest and smallest animals respectively as comparative groups – with the remainder of the herd acting as a control.

The Burlina comes from the Venetian Prealpi at the sides of Mount Grappa.

As a pure breed there still exist very few examples in the provinces of Treviso, Vicenza and Verona nowadays, while in 1930 the stock was of about 15000 heads. The Burlina breed was officially accepted at the first Register office in 1980. ...

Campbell Island Cattle, as you would expect, are from Campbell Island. Campell Island is a subantarctic island that lies over 600 kilometers south of mainland New Zealand. They were first introduced to Campbell Island for the sustenance of any shipwreck survivors who happened to come ashore there.

Although there is a report of “an attempt at agriculture which failed in 1856” the veracity of this is in doubt. However, there are reliable records of pigs, guinea fowl, and geese being liberated in 1865, and goats and pigs were ...

In the 18th century, herds of small black-and-white cattle were brought into northern Holland and Friesland from northern Jutland. They were brought to replace cattle that had fallen victim to disease and flooding. Those cattle were crossed with Dutch cattle and so were developed Friesian Cattle.

Both black-pied and red-pied Friesian Cattle were maintained separately until the establishment of the Netherlands herdbook in 1873 and the Friesland herdbook in 1879. Black-pied cattle were preferred, especially in the United States ...

Holstein Friesian Cattle, or just Holstein cattle, are considered the world's highest dairy production cows.

When European tribes settled the Netherlands close to 2,000 years ago, they wanted animals that would make the best use of the land. The black cattle of the Batavians and white cows of Friesians were bred and strictly culled to produce animals that were the most efficient, producing the most milk with limited feed resources. These animals genetically evolved into the efficient, high producing black-and-white dairy ...

For years Israeli cattle ranchers have been on a quest to produce a high-yielding dairy cow adapted the local climate conditions. To that end they have brought in genetic materials from many sources to improve locally available cattle. The effort began in the early 1920’s with the importation of Friesian bulls from the Netherlands and Germany to upgrade the indigenous Damascene and Baladi dairy cows. In 1947, ten Holstein bulls were imported from Canada and they and their sons were heavily used through artificial insemination. From 1950 ...

The Podolica breed is a descendent of the bos Primigenius Podolicus, very large-sized long-horned cattle thought to have been domesticated in the Middle East during the fourth century BC. There are two theories about the origin of Podolica cattle. According to one, the Podolica derived from cattle that came to Italy in 452 BC following the Huns who, along their way from Mongolia, passed through the Ukrainian steppe, which can be considered the true birthplace of the Podolica breed. Instead, another theory states that as far back as the f ...
