Cattle breeding in Austria

Austria's cattle industry has, due to the natural conditions of production, a long history and tradition. Our diversity of nature and advanced breeding programs (GESUNDheitsmonitoring.RIND) produced robust, healthy and efficient cattle breeds for various production and management conditions. Austria's main cattle breeds are Fleckvieh / Simmental, Brown Swiss, Holstein, Pinzgauer, Tyrolian Grey Cattle and various beef and special breeds. Cattle breeding is still the most important type of production within the agricultural value chain.
