The Dairyy at Honeydale is currently home to three purebred Fleckvieh Cows. Fleckviehs are a traditional Austrian dual-purpose breed, good for both milk production and meat. Our three packed their bags from Austria when they were younger, made the trip over here and never left. We bought them as they were about to have their second calf, having already done one milking season as heifers. The cows have since given birth to three strong healthy calves.
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.
