Genetic modification and reproduction

Many farm animal breeds have only small areas of uni or different colored fur. Genetic changes or breeding produced horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and goats with spots and spots. A choice.

Speckle Park Beef

The breed originated in Canada in the late 1950s when Shorthorn and Angus were crossed. The Speckled Park gets its black coat from the Angus. The cattle owe their white patches on their backs, bellies and hind legs to the single bull that was the White Park. His race and black spots, in English, on a white coat eventually gave the name to Speckle Park. A rare species found in Canada, Australia, Great Britain and Ireland; Switzerland has registered dairy cows for interested parties.

Tarn pinto goat

A goat breed comes from the Hohe Tavern in Austria, where no animal is like any other animal. Tauernschecken are white spots or two-tone black and white and sometimes three-tone brownish black with white predominance. Swiss breeders value uniform paleness of the head, dark-framed eyes and spotted legs. But you also say that Cayce and Bok cannot be used to draw conclusions about offspring. Beautifully colored parents don’t necessarily give beautiful Gitzi. These kinds of colors are the choice of natural and genetic variations and have definite advantages: you can find Tavern Piebald goats in the snow and green meadows – and you don’t have to look far for lively animals in the mountains.

Jacob’s goat

The origin of the breed is unknown. One suspects the Near or Middle East, especially since the Bible already speaks of dark sheep with colorless white spots on their fur. The shepherd Jacob was allowed to keep some of his uncle Laban’s bibald animals as a reward for his skill. Six years later, Jacob was the owner of a large spotted sheep. It was less about his skill as a breeder than the lambs he got Piebald. The animals then migrated with the nomads through North Africa, arriving in Britain in the 1600s. There the breed was biblically called Jakobschaf. They have been in Switzerland since the 1970s and are particularly noted for their many horns. Another genetic mutation causes many Jacob goats to have four horns.

Appaloosa horse

Spotted horses may have arrived in North America with the Spanish in the 18th century, where they were further domesticated by the Nez Perce Indian tribe, known for their horse breeding. The breed’s name Appaloosa is a combination of the acronym for “A Palouse Horse” and refers to the Palouse region of the American Northwest where the tribe lived at the time. The most popular, Western horses stand out with their striped hooves and tan skin, found where a leopard- or tiger-patterned coat won’t cover it. Coat color is a combination of the base color – often shades of brown, but also black, dark or gray – and an exaggerated pattern of spots.

Kunegune is a pig

They are not pink like our common pigs, but multi-colored. The palette ranges from black and white, brown and white and creamy brown to black and orange, red and white and combinations of the three colors. Different colors and markings show that Kunegune pigs are not bred according to the rules. This breed is from New Zealand. In the early 19th century, the Maori kept these pigs and called them kunekune, which means “fat and round” in their language. The Maoris were not interested in appearance, they valued meat and fat and the peaceful behavior of pigs. Swiss owners are interested in the ease of maintenance and the fact that the Kunegune grazes like cattle. They burrow less than other pigs and do not immediately turn pastures into fields.
