I will try to tell you some historical account the Holstein cows. I believe they are popular collecting cows in at least the U.S. So here it comes folks!! Holsteins are large, stylish animals with distinctive color patterns of black and white or red and white. A healthy Holstein calf weighs 90 pounds or more at birth. A mature Holstein cow weighs about 1,500 pounds and stands 58 inches tall at the shoulder. Holstein heifers can be bred at 14 months of age, when they weigh about 800 pounds. It is desirable to have Holstein females calve for the first time between 23 and 26 months of age. Holstein gestation is approximately nine months. While some cows may live considerably longer, the average productive life of a Holstein is three to four years. Here is a picture of a typical Holstein Cow.They are beautiful, don't you agree?
The Holstein cow originated in Europe, descended from the black animals and white animals of the Batavians and Friesians. These migrant European tribes settled the Rhine Delta region, now called the Netherlands, about 2,000 years ago.
