Keeping Heritage Breeds: Dutch Belted Milking Cows

Mary Lou Shaw just wanted a couple cows for milk and meat, and now she’s helping to save a rare breed. Discover the milk, meat and wonderful temperament of the Dutch Belted milking cow.

Heritage Breed Milking Cows
These Dutch Belted cows are a dual-purpose breed that provides both milk and meat. The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy lists them as "critical" because their estimated global population is less than 2,000. Our cows stay with their young and are entirely grass-fed.
