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.

IT’S A BALANCING ACT


By David Jons

“I’m a strong believer in the maternal influence of cow families,” stated Richard Sparrow, Fairdale Farm of Owenton, Kentucky. “It’s a balancing act between a cow’s type, yet be breed leaders for production.” Fairdale Farm, which consist of Richard, his wife Renelle, and their three sons Joe, Ben, Kirby and their families, have elevated that balancing act to an inspiring level.

The Sparrows' April 2021 Rolling Herd Average is 2X 29,416 M 1205F 1009P on 46 Brown Swiss cows. Fairdale Farm has been in the Brown Swiss Association’s top 10 herds for production, fat, and protein for herd size numerous times and was recognized as the highest RHA energy corrected milk herd in the state of Kentucky in 2020. This is accomplished with only labor from the Sparrow family while Joe, Ben and Kirby all hold full-time, off-farm jobs. “Milk pays the bills,” said Richard.
