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.

One million is a number that many of us may never need to concern ourselves over.

If you had one million, one dollar bills and laid them end to end, the line would be nearly 97 miles long. One million seconds would take over a week and a half to elapse. One million pounds of milk would equal 116,279 gallons.

Four Brown Swiss cows at Hilltop Acres Farm, owned and operated by Dennis, Barb, Josh and Tanner Mashek, Calmar, Iowa, have achieved a combined lifetime production of one million pounds of milk, actually over one million pounds of milk at 1,124,620. Until a few weeks ago all four cows were alive and still part of the Hilltop herd. Hilltop Acres Vig Serena, Hilltop Acres V Dolly ET, HF Bonanza Blaze and Hilltop Acres Zeus Nibs, who left the herd a few weeks ago, make up the four cows that achieved the impressive production total.
