A Brown Swiss Cow

Brown Swiss

While Bella isn’t known as being the most popular or the most beautiful, she is one of the older and wiser of the breeds. Bella is a Brown Swiss, which is one of the oldest cattle breeds in existence and native to Switzerland.

Brown Swiss cows like Bella are typically solid brown, varying from very light to dark and weighing approximately 1,500 pounds when mature. Bella produces about five nearly 8 gallons of milk a day, and is the second-highest producer of milk among cow breeds. That’s a lot of ice cream! In addition, her milk offers a higher protein content than some her other friends.
