The red mountain cattle combines a number of red cattle breeds from different German mountain regions and goes back to single-colored red ancestors from Celtic times. It is an un- demanding breed with high-quality meat and a rich milk. Nowadays, red mountain cattle are, among other things, used to maintain open lands- capes.
The extinction of this endangered breed could be prevented using „lost“ semen samples rediscovered in an insemination center.
