Hungarian Animals - Grey Cattle and Mangalitsa

There's an article here about Hungarian consumers (written in Hungarian) buying meat from their traditional Hungarian breeds.

I think it is neat to see the Hungarians in their traditional costumes with Hungarian Grey Cattle on the Chain Bridge. It probably would have all gone awry if they'd brought Mangalitsas too, so the photo editor just put one in.

America doesn't have its own equivalent breeds. Our popular heritage breeds changed with the times, unlike the Hungarian animals.
