    Michigan State University Extension will explore the history of the seven major breeds of dairy cattle in the U.S. Holstein cattle were the first in the series, followed by Jerseys, Ayrshires, Guernsey, Brown Swiss and Milking Shorthorns. The seventh and final breed to be discussed is Red and White cattle. The main aim of breeding dairy cattle is producing offspring that will also be used mainly for dairy production purpose. Raising dairy cattle for milk production requires close attention to bred them so that they produce the most milk possible. Actually breeding dairy cattle will require some prior planning, close attention and observation and recordings of mating and regular recording of the.

    The book's authorized documentation includes a brief history and origin of the various breeds, along with discussions of phenotype and statistics supplied from the appropriate associations. Author Herman R. Purdy, Professor emeritus at Penn State University, was a renowned cattle judge in all fifty of the United States, as well as Canada Cited by: 3.   The authors are with the Animal Improvement Programs Laboratory of the Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. Historically, the percentages for different breeds were determined by the breed reported for a cow. She was either called a Holstein, Jersey, or some other breed.

    Traits:Earliest maturing dairy breed, producing on average 6, litres per cow per year; highest milk components ( per cent butterfat and per cent protein); makes up four per cent of the provincial herd. Origin: Scotland Appearance: Rusty-red and white. Traits: Known as the “aristocrat of dairy breeds” due to their size; produce on. • Content: Essays on origin and history of 45 major breeds of beef & dairy cattle. Including 12 new breeds not profiled in the first edition. Presents phenotype & Production statistics for each breed. Provides addresses & web sites of all major cattle breeders' associations.

“Think dual purpose, think Dairy Shorthorn a Beef and Dairy” The deluxe breed for the production of high quality milk and prime beef HISTORY. Shorthorn cattle can be traced back to the 16th Century in Great Britain where the breed originated; they are the oldest recorded breed existing in the world today.

Select the Dairy Cattle Breed you would like to know about from the list below. You can also select/change the breed you are viewing using the drop-down list in the header above. Apologies if we are missing information on a specific breed. If you have information on a breed not listed please contact us and we will aim to add that breed to the list.

by: Inthe Brazilian Dairy Gir Breeding Program (PNMGL) was created. The progeny testing program of the Gir breed started in the same year and contributed to population growth and increased production of this breed.

The first result of the genetic evaluation of milk and fat production was published in for a group of nine Gir by: It has been 20 years since that major goal was reached. Although 20 years may seem a long time, it is not long in the genetic progression of a breed.

In the other long-established dairy breeds, we still see improvement year after year. In the Oberhasli breed it has been rapid and phenomenal. Second largest amount of milk produced of any dairy cattle breed. Also called the milking shorthorn.

Very small in size. Used in domestic farms. One of the channel islands cattle. Known for producing the most milk of any cattle. Rare breed and can be dual purpose, meat and milk. Selection program. The breed began as a dual purpose breed with a low milk production.

In the s, the Lacaune genetic improvement program was established. This program wanted to improve the breed as a whole and have the Lacaune sheep be able to compete against foreign breeds that were not as adapted to the environment.

A small group of Brown Swiss breeders from Worcester, Massachusetts, created The Brown Swiss Cattle Breeders’ Association of the U.S.A. The first cow, Zurich and the first bull, William Tell were recorded in the Brown Swiss herd book.

The animals registered in today’s herd book are descendants of about importations from Switzerland. Table 1 lists characteristics of the major breeds of cattle in Texas — those most numerous or most familiar in the state — by estimates of purebred breed-wide averages.

Appendix A lists other breeds with registry associations. Using genetic classification and levels of functional traits, breeds can be grouped into these functional types:File Size: KB. The breed was used in the early part of the 20 th Century, primarily as a dual purpose breed, but specialisation for beef and milk led to the beef breeders starting their own section of the herd book in The dairy breeders sought to improve the dairy aspect of their animals, and a blending scheme to introduce outside blood from other breeds was introduced in This program has strengthened the Shorthorn influence by increasing numbers and providing additional germ plasm through the use of related and non-related breeds.

The ASA is the only British breed with an ongoing Appendix program documenting the influence of related and non-related breeds in the breed. The Lincoln Red was developed in Lincolnshire, Britain in the early s, a time of much breed development and livestock improvement. They are related to Shorthorn cattle and were originally registered in the Coates Herd Book, but in they began their own herd book.

The Dutch Belted breed flourished in the U.S. as a dairy breed from around The herdbook of the Dutch Belted Cattle Association of America was established in This is the oldest continuously registering herd book for belted cattle in the world, as even in Holland there has not been a continuous herdbook, with the most recent.

The Cattle Breeds ebook is a comprehensive guide to the different varieties of cattle. This 71 page ebook includes descriptions of the ideal uses for each breed and the origin. Cow breeds can be broken up into four purpose types: Beef (meat), Dairy, Draft, and Multi-Purpose (Beef-Draft, Dairy-Draft, Beef-Dairy and Beef-Dairy-Draft).Bos taurus (or Bos taurus taurus), typically referred to as "taurine" cattle, are generally adapted to cooler climates and include almost all cattle breeds originating from Europe, the Mediterranean region, and northern Asia.

Both species were likely present since ancient times in northern Africa and the Middle East, where both natural and human-caused hybridization likely occurred.The improvement of the native stock is thought to of begun around when it was crossed with other breeds such as the Teeswater cattle and Channel Islands cattle.

Regardless of the details of origin, the early breeders carefully crossed and selected the various strains of cattle to develop the cow we now know as the Ayrshire.
