Facts about Fleckvieh

Worldwide there are 41 milions Fleckvieh animals. Fleckvieh is the second largest cattle breed in the world.

Breeding Aim
Balanced, productive dual purpose cattle suitable for the production of milk, beef and byproducts, that can be kept in all production systems around the world.

History of the Fleckvieh Breed
Starting in 1830 original Simmentaler cattle from Switzerland were imported to the Bavarian Kingdom and to former Austria to improve the local dual purpose breeds. At these times the Simmental cattle were famous for their milk production and drought capacity, but were late maturing with little depth and coarse bones. In 1920 the herdbook in Southern Germany was closed and Fleckvieh was developed as an independent breed. The breeding aims were focused on a „middle of the road type animal“ with excellent muscling, good milk production and draught performance. Therefore an excellent performance testing system and a strict breeding programme were worked out. This systematic improvement of the production traits led to a modern, high productive dual purpose breed, that fits the economical needs of today.

Characteristic
Fleckvieh cattle have a very good exterior, cows have good conformation of udders, feet and legs and medium body size.
