Dairy Cows
The dairy cow became Wisconsinís official domesticated animal in 1971. Several breeds have been chosen to represent the symbol, but because of its distinctive appearance, the spotted black and white Holstein-Friesian breed has a major presence in the stateís popular culture. Mass marketers creatively use the spotted design to sell products and services and tourist shops feature merchandise that associates Holsteins with Wisconsin.
