Bordelais

bordelais-web-1.jpgIt was thought that this breed had completely disappeared about 30 years ago, when some cross-bred (but descended from the original breed) animals were discovered in several parts of southwest France.

The program initiated by the 'Conservatoire des Races d'Aquitaine' quickly produced results. This farm
took on several cows and some bulls. The first of these bulls was selected out for artificial insemination.

The Bordelais is a dairy breed which originated from Dutch and Breton blood. Largely extinct since the 1960's because they were replaced by the Friesian.
