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.

These farms are predominately in Austria and Germany. Our focus is on high class heifers and cows which are then delivered directly to farms.

The Fleckvieh has the ability to reach outstanding milk and solids production levels. The average production for the Fleckvieh breed now stands at around 6850 litres with protein at 3.43% and butterfat at 4.13%. Fertility is also very good. The calving interval stands at 380 days, so they are very suitable as a block spring calving herd. Females calve easily. The cull cow will average 400 kgs dead weight.
