Brown Swiss

The Brown Swiss was developed on the mountain slopes of Switzerland. They were grazed from the foot of the mountains in spring to the highest slopes during the summer.  Such terrain produced hardy animals with excellent grazing ability. The Brown Swiss color varies from silvery gray to brown.  The breed is noted for being very docile with a slight tendency to be stubborn at times.  Brown Swiss were developed for cheese production and meat, and they produce large volumes of milk with a relatively high percentage of milkfat and solids.
