Re: Brown Swiss
this breed is the resault from Braunvieh from Switherland and crossed with Braunvieh from the US,wich was exportet about 80 years ago to the US.
but americans breed for milk and here for milk and meat.
now if you crossbreed them,you get a pretty good milkcow.

Re: Brown Swiss
yes, here in the U.S. they are bred for milk, but why you don't see more of them, I don't know. Here is S.W. Missouri I know of only one farm that milks the Swiss cows. Most all farms milk Holstein, and the Jerseys are making a comeback as you see them now mixed in with other cows a few Jersey herds

Re: Brown Swiss
US bred Brown Swiss is also a good grower (I mean for beef) Holsteins are only fat growers, wher BS also produces beef. We've had only one Brown Swiss crossbreed (I think HF) bullcalf, but this one was far the best we've ever had! (We produce veal, for those wo did not know this.)

Re: Brown Swiss
Tony,they are,but not as the ones in nord america.
these here in switzerland still have some original braunvieh blood,from wich the brown swiss are from originaly.

here the always went for beef and milk,until the 70's when we start gettin some seemen from the states wich only went for milk.

Sjoerd,like i explaned above,but even a real brown swiss is better for beef than a holstein of corse.

Re: Brown Swiss
You know the breed Fries Hollands (Frisian Dutch)? I don't know better, then they are dairy and beef cattle, like your Braunvieh, or Deutche Rotbunte or Meuse Rhine and Yssel-cattle (Dutch red pied). I cannot explain why the HF isn't a grower and BS is.

Re: Brown Swiss
well the americans startet early,maybe 100 years or more ago,with breeding straith for milk on the HF's.

on the BS breed they startet maybe in the late 30's as far i remember.

Re: Brown Swiss
http://www.embryoplus.com/cattle_holstein.html Late 1800's. Yeah, Americans don't know how to work with old or bad dairycows... Meat has to be at a cow, for the butcher. (My opinion)
