Deep Red Cattle

Like all domesticated cattle, the Deep Red cattle is descended from the original, austere and hardy black-brown (for the bulls) to red-brown (for the cows) coloured aurochs. Deep Red cattle were until recently part of the Maas-Rhine-IJssel cattle race, also known as MRIJ. Historically, cross-links can be found with the German 'Rotbunte cattle' and the Belgian 'Kempische Rund'.
