Blonde d'Aquitaine History

    Blondes are the second largest breed in France and were introduced to Australia via semen and embryos in 1975. In that year there were 281 calves registered by 16 studs. Since then Blonde bulls have been recognised by beef producers across Australia as being a sire that increases their profits.

     The Blonde d'Aquitaine breed originates from the south west of France embracing the area of the Garonne Valley and the Pyrenees Mountains. As their name indicates, they come from the Aquitaine district in France.

     Blondes were predominately working animals until the end of the Second World War. This developed their big eye muscles and rump and their long, strong backs, and was an excellent tool for natural selection and genetic superiority. They were always hardy lean animals with light but strong bone structures and as you would expect, very quiet. Blondes show some variation of colour ranging from almost white to tan.
