The Latvian Brown Cow, first recognized as a distinct breed 90 years ago in 1922, numbered over 1.4 million head in 1980. (source: http://www.embryoplus.com/cattle_latvian_brown.html ) As of 9 July 2012 there are less than 150 left.

Thanks to the Quislings that have sold Latvia out to the European Union, the ranches and homesteads that once maintained this magnificent breed have been systematically eliminated—given way to Euro Mega Agro concerns who have (in that ever-so-charming Euro Multi-kulti manner) perverted and diluted the pure Latvian breed to the point of extinction.
Alas, a symbol of Latvian pride is soon to be replaced. Begone, Latvijas brūnā! Give way to the new master of your land, the “European Red.”
