German Black Pied (HF)
(most common name in English)
(most common name):
• Deutsche Holstein Schwarzbunt
• Holstein (black and white)
The German Black Pied (HF) has been developed since the 1960’s into a composite of local German breeds, Dutch breeds, and the Holstein (USA).
The German Black Pied (HF) had early development that was identical to the Dutch-Friesian due to their close geographical proximity. During the 19th century, large numbers of Dutch-Friesian cattle were imported by Germany because they were better developed.
Starting in the 1960’s, the German Black Pied was altered in stages using imported Holstein (USA) sires — making it an American Holstein X European Friesian.
HF = Holstein Friesian
