TaurOs Project
The Tauros Programme, formerly known as TaurOs Project, is a cooperation between the Dutch foundation Stichting Taurus and universities such as the Wageningen University and Research Centre. It is an international effort to breed a type of cattle that resembles the extinct aurochs, the wild ancestor of domestic cattle, to a large extent. The project largely uses hardy cattle breeds with superficial resemblance to the extinct aurochs. By crossbreeding and selective breeding it tries to establish similarity to the aurochs. The long-term goal is to release these Tauros cattle into rewilding areas.Contents1 Background 2 Methods and goal 3 Breeds in use and present crossbreeding results 4 Locations 5 See also 6 References 7 External linksBackground[edit] Herbivorous megafauna are considered important tools of nature conservation in maintaining the biodiversity of open or park-like landscapes without human interference

Stichting Taurus
Stichting Taurus (Taurus Foundation) is a Dutch foundation which uses large herbivores grazing under natural circumstances for nature conservation. Robust cattle and horse breeds are used for this purpose.Contents1 Background and practise 2 Further projects 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksBackground and practise[edit] See also: Conservation grazing Large herbivore species like the aurochs, wisent, elk, and wild horse play an important role in the dynamics between fauna and flora and their grazing is recognized as essential for maintaining the biodiversity in open, park-like areas. Therefore, their re-introduction into Europe's natural areas is deemed necessary, but some of these species are extinct in the wild. For these, their domesticated descendants have to be used.[1] Stichting Taurus uses Exmoor ponies and Konik horses as large equine grazers

They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver (looks white but with a black nose) or dun, and they are raised primarily for their meat.[1] They originated in the Highlands and Hebrides Islands of Scotland
Scotland
and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD. The first herd book described two distinct types of Highland cattle
Highland cattle
but, due to crossbreeding between the two, only one type now exists and is registered. They have since been exported worldwide. They are a hardy breed, having been bred to withstand the conditions in the Scottish Highlands. Their long hair gives the breed its ability to overwinter. Bulls can weigh up to 800 kilograms (1,800 pounds) and cows up to 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds)
