Hello All~ I found this site a couple of weeks ago while researching Brown Swiss. I've been reading lots of posts while waiting to be made an official member. This looks like a great community: active, friendly, lots of well reasoned opinions. I would like to hear your pros/cons on the Brown Swiss. Here is some background on my situation: I want something rather docile. I've been around cattle, but not usually seated at their feet. Looking to try my hand at making cheese. Have plenty of pasture. Would use the extra milk on bottle calves/hogs. My parents raise Gelbvieh cattle, so would have access to their bulls. I think they are nice looking cows. Thanks in advance for your input. Erica.
