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.

The Big Brown Cow Works Hard at EKU

Eastern Kentucky University (EKU), Stateland Dairy at Meadowbrook Farm in Richmond, KY, had a unique opportunity to integrate Brown Swiss into their herd almost a decade ago.

By Erica Davis

Chad Powers, a Brown Swiss enthusiast and breeder, is the farm manager at Meadowbrook Farm and began with the university in 2010. Soon after starting, former Brown Swiss Association board member Allan Bassler called, saying some embryos were available and they were looking to donate them to a university. EKU was excited for the opportunity to develop the genetics offered.

Almost 100 embryos have been donated to the farm in two separate donations from Sunshine Genetics, based in Wisconsin. The understanding was that the university treat the resulting cattle as ‘commercial’ females, showing the Brown Swiss breed’s appeal to the ‘everyday dairyman.’
