Animal Search


Like the iconic black and white cows themselves, every Registered Holstein® operation is unique. Each family is motivated by their own goals and aspirations.

Now in its seventh year, Holstein America pays tribute to dairy farmers and families from coast to coast. The program, sponsored by Merck Animal Health, shares stories of modern-day dairy production and those with a passion for Registered Holsteins.

At the heart of the program are Registered Holstein breeders, who ensure an abundance of dairy products are produced efficiently, sustainably and at the highest quality in the world.
