Portrait of "Red" Holstein dairy cow, oil on linen stretcher in pewter effect tray frame, Sue Moffitt
The Holstein (US) or Friesian (UK, Australia, Europe) is a breed of dairy cow known today as the world's highest production dairy animal.
Originating in Europe, Holsteins were developed in what is now the Netherlands and more specifically in the two northern provinces of North Holland and Friesland (not from Holstein, Germany).
The original animals were the regional cattle of the Batavians and Frisians, two tribes who settled in the coastal Rhine region around 2,000 years ago.
