About Israeli Holstein CattleAbout Israeli Holstein Cattle

For years Israeli cattle ranchers have been on a quest tornproduce a high-yielding dairy cow adapted the local climate conditions. To thatrnend they have brought in genetic materials from many sources to improve locallyrnavailable cattle. The effort began in the early 1920’s with the importation ofrnFriesian bulls from the Netherlands and Germany to upgrade the indigenousrnDamascene and Baladi dairy cows. In 1947, ten Holstein bulls were imported fromrnCanada and they and their sons were heavily used through artificialrninsemination. From 1950 through 1962 Holstein bulls and cows were imported fromrnthe United States for cross breeding. Since 1963 nearly all Israeli dairy cowsrnhave been mated to bulls bred locally.

rnrnCurrently, there are about 110,000 dairy cows in Israel andrnpractically all of them are Israeli Holstein Cattle. And the number of Israelirncattle has practically remained the same over the last 20 years. About 60% ofrnall cows are concentrated in Kibbuts herds (large units in cooperatively ownedrnand managed farms), while the remainder belong to Moshev herds (family farms).rnrn
