Numbering around 41 million animals, the Fleckvieh is one of the most popular breeds of cattle.
Fleckvieh cattle originated in central Europe back in the 1800s when local stock were cross-bred with Simmental cattle from Switzerland. The aim was to produce a breed with excellent muscling and good milk production. Today, the dual purpose Fleckvieh is suitable for both meat and milk production and is firmly established on all continents.
