Hungarian Grey Cattle

Ok. It’s not food (yet), but something, what is very Hungarian. Grey Cattle originates from the Hungarian lowland.The breed probably arrived with the Hungarian immigration from the east to Hungarian lowland in the age of settlement. In the middle age and early modern times it was bred particularly for its beef and the considerable exporting to the European markets.Nowadays the Hungarian grey cattle are kept as mainly tourist attractions in the Hortobágy National Park and in the other country sides. For example in Tihany (next to Lake Balaton), where I took these pictures.
