Why Normande?

Why do we choose the Normande breed?

Normandes do very well on low/no grain diets. There are dairies in France that once a cow is confirmed pregnant, she gets no grain at all, instead just all the pasture she can eat. Of course the production levels would be considered pathetic by US standards, however with grain prices continuing to increase out of proportion with what we get paid for milk, maybe this way of farming has some merit. I’ve played around with the idea of separating my Normandes from the Holstein herd and going grass based with them. I would then try to develop a market for the resulting milk as a specialty milk or possibly French style cheese. I’d raise excess bull calves as veal or grass fed beef.  Normandes seem to fatten a little easier on grass than other breeds of dairy cattle.  I’d be interested in finding someone that would be interested in partnering with me in this endeavor.
