About Armorican CattleAbout Armorican Cattle



Armorican (known as French Armoricaine) are an endangered Frenchrncattle raised for both milk and meat production. They were developed inrnBrittany in the 19th century by cross-breeding local Froment du Leon and thernnow-extinct Pie Rouge de Carhaix cattle with imported Shorthorn stock from thernUnited Kingdom.

rnrnTheir name Armoricain came into use in 1923, and a herdbook wasrnstarted in 1919. In the 1960s, the breed was used with Meuse-Rhine-Issel andrnRotbunt stock, in the creation of the Pie Rouge des Plaines dairy cattle breed.rnCurrently the breed is pretty rare, and in 2007 the Armorican cattle breed wasrnlisted by the FAO as "critically endangered". Their total population wasrnestimated at about 240 head in 2005, and was 263 in 2014. Currently the breedrnis mainly distributed in Brittany area of France.
