German Pinzgauer
(local/other name in English)

• Pinzgau

The German Pinzgauer started development in the early 19th century with imported white-backed cattle from the valleys of:

It was in southeast Bavaria that these imported white-backed cattle were then crossbred with the local Bavarian land-race cattle.
