The Dutch Belted (also known as Lakenvelder) breed of dairy cattle is, according to records, the only belted breed of cattle tracing back directly to the original belted or “canvassed” cattle which were described in Switzerland and Austria. These Gurtenvieh (‘belted cattle’) were evidently moved by Dutch nobility from the mountain farms of canton Appenzell and County of Tyrol during or soon after the feudal period. The Dutch were very protective of their belted cattle and would generally not part with them. The cattle were highly prized for their milking and fattening abilities. The breed began to flourish in the Netherlands around 1750. Now, the cow is too rare to become a popular type of beef.
Current cows are more productive, and there are small-scale initiatives to preserve the breed.
