Cows Around the World: Yakutian

Yakutian cattle hail from the wintry snowscapes of Russia. To weather this harsh, freezing environment, these cows have thick, furry coats and lots of subcutaneous fat to keep them warm. They don't produce much milk when compared to industry cows, but the milk they DO produce is highly nutritious and great for butter making!
