What you need to know

TheBlond d'Aquitaine beef cattle breed originates from three strains of blond cattle from the South West (Garonnais, Quercy and Blond des Pyrénées), which were merged in the 1960s. The cattle are farmed for their very tender, low-fat meat, which provides a higher proportion of noble cuts than other breeds. They are recognizable by their distinctive, uniform cream color and have a large, muscular frame; the adult males can weigh up to 1.7 tons. The Blonde d'Aquitaine is also France's third-ranking dairy cattle breed in terms of number of animals; it is farmed in 30 countries around the world. It is easy to breed, very docile, which makes free-range farming easier, and adapts to all climates. The national Red Label awarded to the breed guarantees compliance with a strict set of standards ensuring traceability and health monitoring, from breeding to point of sale. Red Label Blond d'Aquitaine beef cattle are fed grass for six months of the year, supplemented by fodder and cereal-based feeds produced on the farm or purchased from recommended manufacturers.
