Among animals with universal productivity, it is worth noting the Swiss breed cow.
The cows are bred in three directions, which makes the breed a truly valuable species for agriculture. The species is considered a quality producer of both milk and meat.
Schwyz breed of cows began its journey in agriculture in the 14th century, thanks to the Swedish shepherds. The mountainous canton of Schwyz, in which the formation of the now famous Swedish buren, took place, is considered the birthplace of the species.
The species was created by crossing local cows with individuals brought from the East. Local representatives had the necessary exterior, namely, short, sturdy legs, allowing to conquer mountain ranges. Brought animals did not have much external differences, but were quite productive. Thanks to high yields, they became the progenitors of the Schwyzian cows.
Initially, the task of breeders was the removal of livestock for agricultural work. Soon the plans were changed, and the breeders sent forces to improve the productivity of the breed.
