Drimmon
(historical breed name)

also named (Gaelic):
• Droimeann

The Drimmon was white-backed and considered an authentic color variety — and it’s now extinct.

The Drimmon was possibly a Longhorn descendant or a cross of the Kerry and the Irish Moiled.

A Drimmon named ‘Big Bertha’ is in the Guinness Book of World Records for reaching the age of 48 years and eight months — and birthing 39 calves!

(Gaelic) droimeann = white-backed
