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.

True Farms

Convention Farm Tour Stop

It was Memorial Day Weekend in Wooster, Ohio. Stacia True sat straight out center-field from the auctioneer’s box at the Snapshots at Starmark Sale. Just like a short-stop waiting for a line drive, she had a look of determination on her face. When lot B35 entered the ring, everyone knew why. Stacia and husband Jeff had made the decision to get serious about investing in Brown Swiss genetics for showring type and they had done their homework. The maternal line of Blessing PR Shirlan 3E93 with a top record of 31,740M 1,804F 1,117P piqued their interest and they purchased her Premium granddaughter, Forest Lawn PJS Shine that day. Stacia admits to going over the budget she and Jeff discussed. However, she justified the extra coin with a “two for one” as Shine was carrying an ultrasound heifer by Starsky. This was the start of an influx of Brown Swiss cattle to True Farms which has led them to be a tour stop for the 2019 National Brown Swiss Convention.
