Description:
Harz Red mountain cattle are a unicoloured red cattle breed from the Harz in Germany. They serve the purposes of providing milk, beef and draught power.

History

This cattle breed stemmed from the red cattle breeds of South and Middle Germany and traced probably back to unicoloured red Germanic-Celtic Cattle. Out of them a local cattle breed developed under the tough conditions of the Harz mountain range.

In the 1950s this cattle breed was crossed with Danish Red bulls to increase milk yields. Later they crossed in Angeln cattle. Since 1980 the Harz Red cattle has been only a variety of the Angeln breed.

In the middle of the 1980s they took remaining animals of the old Harz Red cattle (that were already mixed) to synthesize a new population of "Red Cattle, breeding type Mountain Cattle".

Breed Farms

The Harz Red mountain cattle will be bred on only a few farms:
