White Park cow

Children’s Farms·Mammal

This cow's shaggy white coat contrasts with its black ears, nose, and hooves. Any other black markings are a result of past crossbreeding. Its horns may be lyre-shaped and continue to twist as the animal ages. A small herd of ancient white park cattle was shipped from Europe to North America prior to World War II. This move prevented the breed from possible extinction during the Nazi invasion.
