The Rätisches Grauvieh (aka Bündner Grauvieh, Albulah Vieh, Albula; Rhaetian Grey in English) began as a composite of diverse Grison mountain cattle strains that, starting in the 1920’s, was displaced in Switzerland by crossing with Swiss Brown cattle. However, cattle of this Albula-type was re-imported from Austria in 1985.
The Swiss canton of Graubünden (Grisons in English) is the original home of the Rätisches Grauvieh and Albula is a region within it. This canton borders on the western part of Oberinntal, Austria.
Bündner Grauvieh translates into Grisons Grey in English.
