About the Normande Breed

NORMANDE:

An old breed from France

A new breed for America

The Normande breed has its origins in cattle that were brought to the Normandy region of France by the Viking conquerors in the 9th and 10th centuries.  For a thousand years these cattle evolved into a dual purpose breed to meet the milk and meat needs of the residents of northwestern France.  The present herdbook was started in 1883.  Though the breed was decimated by the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II, there are currently 3 million Normandes in France.  Normandes can also be found in South America, Africa as well as other European countries.

NORMANDE:

Genetics that breed quality

With the richest milk in fat and protein of all the French breeds, the Normande is the most outstanding breed for cheesemaking.  The Normande meat is well-known for its flavor and marbling.  Because the Normande has remained a strong and sturdy cow, it has kept its functional abilities, thus guaranteeing easy management thanks to remarkable fertility, longevity, calving ease and docility.
