H Is For Holstein

It's June Dairy Month! The barn doors are open, 
so join me on my daily A to Z journey 
to learn more about dairy. 
  H is for Holstein

There are six most common breeds of dairy cows. We have Holstein cows on our farm. The black-and-white Holsteins are the most popular milk cows in Minnesota. About  93 percent of all dairy cattle in the United States are Holsteins. The Holstein's popularity may be because they produce more milk than any other breed.

   This little cutie wanted me to tell you that although Holsteins are black and white, some Holsteins are red and white, the result of a recessive gene. 
So what are the other five breeds of dairy cows...tah-dah...here you go
