This speaks well for the black and white animals, first brought to Canada from Hol- land and the United States in 1881, and which are all des- cended from the Friesian cat- tle of the Netherlands. Although the last direct im- portation from Holland to Can- ada was in 1905, there has been a constant interchange of blood lines between this country and the U.S. Canada is now the largest exporter of registered Holstein breeding stock in the world. These animals have been shipp- ed from Canada to more than 50 countries and have been reported to thrive from the tropics to the colder climates. In 1884, the Holstein-Friesian Association of Canada was formed and today has a mem- bership of about mostly in Ontario and Quebec. Working on the principle that the most profitable cow is one that not only has the inherent ability to produce milk at a high level but the body confor- mation or type that will enable production for a long period of time, the association has long promoted the improve- ment of the breed through ar- tificial insemination programs. Promoted The breed has been promot- ed _ through the association until there are annual regis- trations of animals. The term purebred has been used by the association to refer to animals with ances- try which has been recorded ta an unbroken line, both through sire and mother, bacfc to the time of the Holland im- portations to the country. Animals, in order to appear in the regular Holstein herd book, must be black and white in color with a white taiL No black coloring can touch the hoof, encircle the leg nor run from the hoof to the knee. Bed and white animals and black and white females which don't fit this description are entered in an alternate Holstein herd book. They are still con- sidered registered Holsteins. Grade class Holsteins are animals which are obviously members of the Holstein breed from their appearance but aren't eligible for registry in the association herd books be- cause of unknown ancestry. Records Through the extensive record keeping system of the associa- tion, cows can be classified as excellent, very good, good plus, and good. Excellent cows produce about pounds of milk per year with 717 pounds of fat. Very good cows produce about pounds of milk for 634 pounds of fat Good plus cows produce pounds of milk for 568 pounds of fat while good cows produce about pounds of milk and 538 pounds of fat. This production rating Is based on 305 days of milking per year. Indicative of the breed, 91 per cent of the Holstein cows in Canada with lifetime records of pounds of milk or higher classified as good plus or better. Nine per cent were classed as excellent.
