This Breed Code has been allocated since 2004 to all qualifying pedigree animals that are 87.5% British Friesian or more, through Holstein UK (our registering Society).

As with most other breeds, this separate breed code enables British Friesians to be evaluated to their own Breed Average. Pedigree animals can be checked on the HUK website under the Animal Data section.

It is desirable for milk recording purposes that non-pedigree animals are also correctly identified wherever possible.
