The classic black and white spotted dairy breed is the Holstein, but this herd probably isn't pure Holstein stock since their are some brown and tan cows in the group. A few cows look solid black. I don't know how common that is among Holsteins. It could be that the tendency to be solid in color comes from another breed that is part of this herd's genetic heritage.

Hosteins (farmers in Australia often call them Friesians) are now the dominant breed in Australia. (When my uncles were farming up to the 1980s it used to be Jerseys, in western Victoria anyway.) I think the tan ones may be Ayreshires or Ayreshire crosses: DIFFERENT BREEDS OF COWS - Parmalat

Nice shots @timb64, @Ramseybuckeye and @rod_grant - keep them coming!

My grandmother preferred having a Jersey for the family milk cow. I don't believe they produce the volume of milk some expect from cows in a dairy herd, but their milk is known for being very rich.

More interesting shots, Tom. It's amazing how those slight kids are in control of big strong animals!

Des, that is magnificent.
I have never seen Wilson's Prom from your place, but next time I'm down that way...






btw, telephoto lenses aren't any good for landscapes

Thanks a lot Rod. Lots of compression here: the cows are maybe 1.5kms away, and Mt Vereker in the background is about 25 kms.

These are just fabulous shots, @sealonsf There's a timeless quality about them. You have a great eye for the animals, and for composition and colour.

I'm a bit worried about the white goat with the black head in the last one.

Another fine shot Tom. I see you worked in some autumn leaves as well. When I was a kid in suburban Melbourne there used to be a guy who delivered milk with a cart pulled by Clydesdales. I always thought they were magnificent. I love the "gaiters".
