British Friesian cows

Main topic Animal husbandry
Friesian cows dominate the UK dairy cow population. Friesian cattle stock and semen are exported to many countries. Friesian is suitable for farms where grazing is the main feature of the system. Having robust conformation, Friesian cows last more lactations. Being "dual-purpose" animals, the male calves can be put into an intensive beef system to finish in about eleven months. They can also be grown on extensive systems to finish at two years. Friesian is considered as a grazing animal and is able to sustain itself on both low-lying and upland grasslands. Friesians cows have high fecundity and some have even 12-15 lactations. Male Friesians produce high quality lean meat.
