Origin and diffusion area

It comes from the Dutch Friesian and originates from Northern Germany (German name Deutsche Schwarzbunte). The first imports date back to the early nineteenth century (Germany is the first country in which the Dutch Friesian has spread).
Until 1945 it was mainly selected to increase the quantity of milk, then more attention was paid to the morphology and quantity of fat in the milk. In the 1960s they were imported (breeding or seed) from North America. It is the most represented breed in Germany. It is also exported to some European and non-European countries.
