The Pinzgauer cattle breed is named for the province from which it comes in Austria, Pinzgau; the first records of its existence there are from the seventeenth century. It is a very well-liked breed, because it usually does not suffer from the two conditions ranchers find most difficult in other breeds: eye diseases (particularly eye cancer, which is one of the most reprehensibly disgusting things imaginable) and problematic calf births, which require the sort of manual assistance portrayed in City Slickers. They are also fairly indifferent to insects.

Pinzgauer also posess excellent musculature, and their meat is well-marbled and popular with beef distributors.
