Excerpt from Dairy Farming: Being the Theory, Practice, and Methods of Dairying

How and when the original animals from which our present breeds of cattle are descended first came to this country, it is now impossible to determine. That they have inhabited these islands for a very long period is proved by those fossiliferous remains of them which have from time to time been discovered in very ancient cave and drift deposits, which, though even approximate dates can hardly be given, were formed many thousands of years ago. More than once during these vast pre-historic periods of time, the bed of the German Ocean has been elevated so that England formed part of the Continent of Europe, and it may well be that the remote ancestors of our herds of cattle, migrating westwards, came to Britain by dry land all the way, in the period preceding the last time when the sea swept between this country and the Continent, and England again became an island.

It is probable - but this, we suspect, is a point which, like the preceding one, can never be determined with certainty - that the various types of dairy-cattle, as seen in the distinct breeds of the present day, have all come from one original and individual stock which, before the land was fenced in and cultivated, roamed at large for ages over the face of the country. Even to this day have survived, in the white cattle preserved in the parks at Chillingham, Chartley, and Lyme, the lineal descendants of the ancient roaming herds, still retaining, though confined within a limited area, the wild characteristics of their remote ancestors, and but little, if at all, changed by the skill which man has brought to bear on what are properly called the improved breeds.
