All of our Miniature Zebu cows are registered with the International Miniature Zebu Association (IMZA) .  (See them at http://www.imza.name/index.html)   Their introduction about this unique little cow says:   

"If you have never seen a newborn Miniature Zebu calf, you don't know what you are missing.  They are so darn cute, almost fawn-like.  They will steal your heart.  Miniature Zebu are slow to mature.  It seems the smaller the animal, the older they are when they first breed.  They are a hardy breed and have a high resistance to disease.  Miniature Zebu are a tropical breed and handle the heat very well.  In fact, the hotter it is the better they seem to like it.  As far as the cold weather, they would much rather stay in the barn.  As long as you furnish them with proper housing in the winter months, they will do fine.  Nothing definite is known as to the ancestry or original habitat of Zebu cattle.  However, Zebu cattle are known to be one of the oldest breeds of cattle, possible dating back as far as 6000 B.C.  In Southern India, which is one of the principal cattle-raising districts of all India, there exists cattle known as "Nadudana" or small cattle.  A few of these were imported in the 1920's for zoological gardens in the country."
"On April 10, 1991, at the Lolli Brothers Auction in Macon, Missouri, 29 owners and persons interested in Nadudana Zebu met and agreed to form the International Miniature Zebu Association, IMZA.  This association is a non-profit corporation designed to collect, record and preserve the pedigrees of Miniature Zebu cattle.  Also, to publish a breeding registry and to stimulate and regulate any and all other matters such as may pertain to the history, breeding, exhibition, publicity, sale or improvement of this breed."
