The Hungarian Grey is a Podolian Grey Steppe cattle breed.

The Hungarian Grey began when longhorned grey cattle entered Hungary in the 14th century.

Southwest Ukraine (formerly Podolia) is considered geographically to be one of the initial development areas for Grey Steppe cattle during the twelfth to fourteenth centuries.

Podolian cattle breeds have calves born with a fawn to reddish coat that turns grey or white after about five months of maturing.
