Extensive grassland farming with hardy breeds. 1. Development and breeding evaluation of Galloway, Luing and Highland cattle in Bavaria


Zuchtungskunde 66(3): 198-215
Extensive grassland farming with hardy breeds. 1. Development and breeding evaluation of Galloway, Luing and Highland cattle in Bavaria
A study of the 3 breeds in Bavaria was carried out by means of a questionnaire, examination of herdbook data, and by recording of data on 15 selected farms. The breeds have been kept in Bavaria since 1980. In 1991, the number of herdbook cows of the Galloway, Luing and Highland breeds was 665, 548 and 59 respectively, on 105, 108 and 59 farms. The farms were not concentrated on marginal grassland areas, nor on farms subject to particularly unfavourable climatic conditions.
