Brown Swiss are known
for dairy strength

Originating in the Swiss Alps, Brown Swiss adapt well to high altitudes and hot or cold climates, while producing large volumes of milk, ideal for cheese-making. Their unique ability to yield high components with an ideal fat-to-protein ratio sets them apart from other dairy breeds. 

Correct feet and legs, well-attached udders and dairy strength contribute to their exceptional productive life, allowing them to thrive in any modern dairy set-up. Style, balance and fancy frames also make Brown Swiss easy winners at county, state, national and international shows.

Jenlar Holsteins and Brown Swiss is home to Larry and Jennifer Meyer and their three children: Brianna, 16; Austin, 14 and Abby 11. The farm consists of a 140-cow herd which is comprised of 80% Holsteins and 20% Brown Swiss. The cows are milked with two Lely robotic milkers that were installed in March 2017.

“We had been experiencing labor issues, so we began touring robotic dairies,” Larry said. “We like that the cows are able to do things individually. They can eat, milk or rest on their own routine, instead of as a group.”
