South African Holstein
Holsteins have over the past century, dominated the dairy cattle population in most parts of the world. Dairy cows are maintained to convert roughage’s, which are unsuitable for human consumption, into a high quality human food. It can therefore be said, that as a breed, Holsteins are most efficient converters of roughage into high quality milk and beef. Holsteins have the highest milk productions in the world and produce good quality meat.
