The Black Pied Dairy Cattle were a cattle breed of the GDR created through combination breeding. In 1963 Professor Schönmuth suggested this way: Jersey bulls from Denmark are crossed with German Black Pied cows. The descendants of this crossing are crossed with Holsteins. The goal of this three-breed cross was to create a cattle breed with high milk production high milk fat content and sufficient beef performance. This breed was continued until 1990.
