Pedigree Registrations / Herd Grade-up

Due to the shortage of pure and pedigree stock in the country the most common route into the Brown Swiss breed is now by grading up cattle through the generations. First crosses can be entered into the Herd Book with ease provided that the sire is a pure Brown Swiss and registered in the UK Herd Book.

Many breeders have bred their first cross animals from registered Holsteins. These animals can be entered into the Herd Book as a first cross but with the added advantage that the full back pedigree of the black and white dam is maintained along with any milk records, classifications and awards.

For people wishing to enquire about grading up Brown Swiss cattle into the UK Herd Book, please contact us at the office either by telephone or email.
