Story: Dairying and dairy products
Holstein-Friesian cows are large, and usually black and white. In New Zealand they produce over 4,000 litres of milk per season from a grass-based diet. The first Dutch Friesians were imported by Canterbury’s John Grigg in 1884. The national Friesian herd now contains about 40% North American Holstein.
