Dairy Cow

In the U.S., milk comes from breeds of cattle genetically selected for milk production. At one time in the U.S., cattle were selected simultaneously for beef and milk production. This is still the case in many parts of the world. The common dairy breeds in the U.S. today have been selected almost exclusively for milk production for many generations.
