Agricultural question

Postby Arseny » Tue Apr 30, 2013 12:53 pm

Guys, I have some strange question.
What colors are usual for American COWS ? :wtf:

I want to order new stock cars from RailTT, so I am interested in cow's colors.
For example, in Russia most of cows are black or black-and-white. Red/brown ones are very rare. No white cows.
But when I visited France, I noticed that all cows were white! :wtf:
And what about American cows?.. :lol:

I know cows! My dad was a dairy farmer, I spent lots of time around them!
I would say most dairy cows are Holstein (black and white), the Brown Swiss are pretty common too. The white cows you saw were probably Charolais, I can remember we had one ( a steer) that we raised for beef when I was a kid.
Beef cattle are probably going to be Black Angus or White Face (Hereford), or Longhorns if you model Texas! But most of the TT cows I've seen look like dairy cows, so the plain old black and white or brown and white will be fine.

Great! Thank you Al!
But I think it's better to use some beef cattle breeds for the stock car (to transport the cattle to the meat-packing plant), not dairy ones...

It is worth mentioning that almost all dairy cows end up going to the meat packers eventually as well. Non-breeding male dairy breed cows (often as veal) are sent to the slaughterhouse as are non-conforming cows, and retired milking cows often go to the slaughterhouse as well.
