Foundation for the Conservation of Red-pied Friesian Cattle

The Foundation of Red-pied Friesian Cattle was established in 1993 to prevent the extinction of this rare breed. In cooperation with Dutch farmers, the foundation formulates breeding programmes, registers farmers with red-pied Friesian cattle, contacts agencies and gives information.

 

The foundation's objective

The objective of the Foundation of Red-pied Friesian Cattle is the conservation of red-pied Friesian cattle in which the animal's economic purpose is taken into account. Partly as a consequence of the efforts of the foundation, the number of red-pied Friesian cattle is increasing every year.
