Holstein Cows - 192 pcs - Good Luck Minis®
When people think of dairy cows, they often imagine a passive black-and-white creature, and for good reasons. Holsteins, with their distinctive black-and-white markings are far and away the most prodigious milk producers in the United States.
History: Migrants traveling through Europe 2000 years ago came across what would eventually become the Netherlands, a cold, northern country with limited natural resources. They needed a cow that could survive and thrive in that setting, so they bred types together, the black Batavians and the white Friesians, for their ability to produce a great deal of milk from limited feed. The black-and-white breed became known as Holsteins, and the productive cows finally made their way to the U.S. in 1852 aboard a Dutch ship.
Scientific Name: Bos taurus
Characteristics: These gentle dairy cows would look pretty good grazing away on top of cupcakes and in a birthday giveaway bag. Use them in miniature farm scenes as well.
