The Dairyy at Honeydale is currently home to six purebred Fleckvieh Cows, four of whom will calve this Spring 2023. The remaining two are were our first born calves, back in the spring of 2021 when we started. We are hoping to bring these into the milking herd in 2024. Fleckviehs are a traditional Austrian dual-purpose breed, good for both milk production and meat.
Fleckviehs are not very commonly seen in the UK, however, they are rapidly gaining in popularity so when you see a red and white cow that would look at home in the Alps, you’ll know what it is.
