DANISH RED

Also Known By: Rødt Dansk Malkekvog (Danish), Fünen, Red Dane, Red Danish


The Danish Red is of the Baltic Red cattle type and originated on the islands off the coast of Denmark.  The breed was developed from North Slesvig Red, with Angeln and Ballum, crossed with the local island cattle.  During the 1970's Brown Swiss breeding was introduced into the bloodlines.

In the early 1960s this breed accounted 61% for of Danish cattle stock, by the early 1980s this number had declined to a little over 20%.  This was largely due to the introduction of higher producing Dutch Friesian cattle.

The bulls, which are typically darker red, have an average weight of 1000 kg.  Cows average 660 kg and show a typical dairy conformation.  In 1977, cows yielded an average of 5,240 kg of milk containing 4.17% fat during a lactation.
