Schleich Farm Life: Holstein Cow

Product information

A lovely detailed figurine of a Holstein cow. Holstein bulls and cows are the most popular breed of cattle in the world. They were first bred in The Netherlands and then brought to America in 1857.

Holsteins are immediately recognizable by their black and white coloring -- the stereotypical farm bull and cow. Today farmers raise Holsteins for their amazing milk-producing ability: the average cow produces 3,250 gallons of milk a year! They live three to four years, but some have been known to live much longer.

Cattle have four stomachs. They graze on a combination of grasses and hay; once the food passes through their first stomach, it's called cud. This cud gets pushed back into their mouth, and the cattle chew on it all day until it is ready to go through the other three stomachs. It almost looks like they're chewing gum!

Editors Notes

The company was founded by a man named Friedrich Schleich in 1935, but it wasn't until the 1950s that the first figurines were created, with a range of comic characters such as Snoopy, The Muppets and The Smurfs being released. The pride themselves on being a developer and supplier of top quality products with an educational aspect, as all their products are developed with the assistance of parents, teachers and children to ensure that they are designed for children’s hands.

The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling them to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company’s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries.
