Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle were first introduced into Canada in 1971, have seen a steady increase in their population and celebrated their 40th Anniversary in Canada in 2011. The origin of Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle can be traced back to the sixth century in the southwest of France. At that time they were chosen as draft animals because of their muscle development, hardiness and docile temperament. The Blonde d'Aquitaine breed as we know it today, represents a combination of three strains with their chief purpose being the production of slaughter calves. The Blonde d'Aquitaine breed has been subjected to extensive testing and genetic evaluation in France, and is the third most populous beef breed in that country.
