La Gasconne

A hardy breed, adapted to both extensive and intensive systems, Gasconne of the Pyrenees stands out for its resistance and resilience. Recognizable by the black tips of its horns, its black eyes, mucous membranes and hooves, as well as its silvery coat and short hair, the Gascon is able to adapt to the extreme temperatures of its environment.

While hardiness is one of its major assets, it is also an easy and profitable cow to raise. Her good legs, health, feed efficenty, ease of calving, longevity, docility… make her a productive cow.

Renowned for its juicy, marbled meat, in 1997 Gasconne of the Pyrenees was the first breed to be awarded the “Label Rouge Bœuf Gascon ” Pure Breed, Pur Taste “” label for large, hardy cattle, now known as “Le Vrai Bœuf” for males and “Laissez-vous fondre!” for cows and heifers.
